The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu , has expressed the readiness of the state to return both primary and secondary schools to their original owners .
There have been agitations from different quarters that the schools should be returned to the missionaries for proper and better administration of the schools .
To this end , the governor said the missionary schools would be returned to the original owners .
Akeredolu gave the assurance while addressing workers at the state secretariat , Akure , the Ondo State capital.
The governor however noted that the return of the schools would be under certain conditions stipulated by the state government .
According to the governor , part of the conditions to be met by the interested missionaries is an assurance that the released institutions will not discriminate against any admission seekers.
Akeredolu said , “ Once the hurdles listed by the government are cleared by the mission owners , we shall gladly hand them back to them ( missionaries ) . ”
He directed the religious organisations interested in taking over their schools to approach the state Ministry of Justice for necessary briefs .
