Christ Apostolic Church Theological Seminary orders immediate closure of campuses


By Boluwatife Oparinde

As an advanced development of the previous report on the three weeks election break declared by the Christ Apostolic Church Theological Seminary (CACTS) for all her campuses, the Management of the Seminary has ordered an immediate closure of all campus on-site activities, which began on Wednesday, February 15, 2023.

In a circular signed by the school Registrar, Pastor L. B. Akinyosoye obtained by CAC News, the urgent decision was predicated on abounding reports of "the breakdown of law and order and its attendant destruction of both private and public properties in some major cities in the nation. These violent activities are predominantly spearheaded by youths as a reactionary stance against the Federal Government's policy of the redesigned naira notes and its biting effects on all the arms of the economy."

"These violent reactions are currently gathering momentum in Ile-Ife city with the Okada riders and public transporters commencing their own demonstration beginning from Tuesday, 14th February, 2023. Similar protests have taken place in other parts of the country including Delta and Edo States, where a number of banks were alleged to have been torched by angry customers who could not access their deposits in those banks," it continued.

According to the circular addressed to the Church Authorities, "the build-up could assume any proportion any moment from now; the prevalent fuel scarcity and the hike in transport fare for both intra and long range travels. The prevailing insecurity in the country which could further strengthen these negative developments and further try to set the nation on fire and put Nigerians on the road to anarchy."

"After an exhaustive consideration of the above issues, the Management decided to immediately close down the school and allow all students to go home to their parents. Every other condition stated in our earlier circular stands," the circular said.
