Muslim Students Refuse To Attend Morning Devotion

Tension is mounting at St Vincent College of Education in the Northern Region following attempts to compel Muslim students to attend morning devotion.

According to reports, Muslim students have refused to attend a weekday devotion saying they cannot be forced to accept and practice a doctrine which different from the Islamic religion.

They have accused the principal of forcing students to attend the morning devotion despite their love for their religion.

The principal of the College, Dr. Erasmus Novio Moti says the request by the students to be excused from the devotions is untenable.

Dr. Novio Moti said he has discussed the position of the school on the matter with some officials of the Muslim Council from Accra, adding nothing has changed.

“Monday to Friday’s gathering is compulsory [because] it makes it easy to meet the student body when there is an emergency,” He said.

He has therefore challenged the students to comply with rules and regulations governing the College.
