Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has reacted to the controversy involving using Hijab by feminine college students in Kwara State.
Sani mentioned including Hijab to high school uniforms shouldn’t result in any controversy.
He confused that the federal government ought to permit college students whose mother and father need them to put on a Hijab as a part of their college uniform whereas these in opposition to it shouldn’t be pressured to put on it.
In a tweet, the previous lawmaker disclosed that college students in Kaduna State have been practising twin uniforms for many years.
In line with Sani: “The Hijab as a Faculty uniform ought to NOT trigger any controversy. Those that need their kids to put on it ought to be allowed to put on it.
“Those that don’t need their kids to put on it shouldn’t be pressured to take action. Twin uniforms have been utilized in Kaduna for over twenty years.”
Recall that the Kwara State Authorities had lately permitted using Hijab in colleges.
Mamma Sabah Jibril, Secretary to the State Authorities, had mentioned the administration consulted extensively with Muslim and Christian communities earlier than making the choice.
Nevertheless, the Cherubim and Seraphim church within the state had yesterday faulted the choice of the state authorities on using Hijab in colleges.
