In a statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Makut Macham, on Sunday in Jos, Mr. Lalong said the missionary schools would be returned to their original owners as soon as the committee to look into the matter submitted its report.

He thanked the association for picking the state to host its 14th national conference and commended the members for their contributions to the growth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The governor also commended them for their efforts in raising leaders who had impacted different fields.

Earlier in her remarks, the association’s national president, Dame Uduehi, thanked Mr Lalong for his commitment to service and efforts towards changing the negative narrative of the state.
