Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has called for peace over the hijab controversy rocking some schools in Kwara State.
On Monday, the Kwara State Ministry of Education reversed its decision to reopen the 10 grant-aided schools, where the use of hijab is disputed.
The reversal by the State Government follows reactions of different Christian organisations against the government’s approval of the use of hijab in all public schools.
Reacting to this development, the former lawmaker from Kaduna on his Twitter page called for dual uniforms.
See his tweet below:
The Hijab as a School Uniform should NOT cause any controversy.Those who want their Children to wear it,should be allowed to wear it.Those who don’t want their Children to wear it,should NOT be forced to do so.Dual uniforms has been used in Kaduna for over two decades.
