September 22, 2016 - School Uniform
A new Appeal Court settlement extenuation a right to wear Hijab in open schools in Lagos State to the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), might only signpost a new epoch in open education.
The School Uniform as we once knew it, might be dying. Long live a School Uniform.
But to inter a School Uniform, we’ll have to start from Osun State.
In June, 2016, Muslims dragged a Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola led supervision before a justice over a refusal of some ‘Christian’ open schools to concede their womanlike students wear a Hijab.
The Principal of Christ African Middle School, Osogbo, Mrs. Micha, reportedly walked Muslim students out of her propagandize for wearing a Hijab.
Justice Jide Falola of a Osun State High Court ruled in foster of a Muslims; as a Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) raged and kicked.
Falola announced a wearing of Hijab lawful, citing a right to leisure as enshrined in a nation’s constitution.
After a judgment, a Osun State Chapter of CAN educated Christian pupils to accoutre church robes to propagandize if a state supervision was going to exercise a ruling. A few pupils and students obeyed and wore church and choir robes to propagandize a subsequent day.
The pierce by CAN set off a eremite discuss in Osun; pitting Christians opposite Muslims.
“Muslims have been wearing Hijab to schools for a really prolonged time. As a Christian, it doesn’t impede my faith or ability to learn. If a CAN care has a problem with it, they should proceed a law courts, rather than embark on actions that could means disavowal among a assent amatory people of Osun”, wrote Kikiowo Ileowo, a Chief Strategist during Revamp Media and Publisher of online newspaper, The Paradigm.

Governor Aregbesola, a Muslim, was indicted of instigating a Hijab predicament in his possess State.
He was forced to titillate himself.
“If we available Hijab, would a Muslims have left to justice to plea it? Is that not contradictory?
“Is it a crime that we am a Muslim, is it since we onslaught to be a good Muslim that all we do is being misunderstood? we consider we don’t merit all these lies opposite me.
“There is zero eremite in any of a policies. The fact on belligerent contradicts a opposition’s claim.
“The choice of my Deputy Governor tells it all, we knew she is a Pentecotalist of a top sequence before we picked her.
“Everything we have finished in a line of preparation is in line with a fortitude of a preparation summit.
“Against all speculations, we have not systematic a use of Hijab, we plea anybody with justification to come out and uncover that we have done a commercial on Hijab”, the Governor said.
As students and pupils returned to a classrooms in Lagos on Monday, a Lagos State Area Unit of a Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), released a unrelenting warning to Tutor-Generals/Permanent Secretaries, principals and teachers.
Respect a Appeal Court settlement extenuation a right to wear hijab in open schools in a state, a MSSN warned.
The All Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS), also asked a members not to sequence students to mislay a Hijab. Seizing a Hijab from a tyro was also warned against.
“Though, we do not design any clergyman to act to a contrary, if they do, we titillate a members to safeguard that they conflict stealing a hijab with their possess hands.
“They should safeguard that a clergyman or overzealous principal do it themselves. And after any of a preparation stakeholders does that, he or she should be prepared for authorised and mass actions, said Saheed Ashafa of Lagos ANCOPSS.
CAN has filed a stay of execution on a Hijab statute in Osun. The Christian physique had pronounced a Judge’s statute “violates a eremite rights of a strange owners of a companion schools as concluded on when a schools were taken over by a afterwards supervision of Oyo state in 1975”.
When students and pupils start to seem in schools opposite Nigeria dressed in choir robes and Hijab, it might only be time to bid a aged School Uniform, one final farewell.
The epoch of a Uniform-less open propagandize in Nigeria might only be a lot closer than we thought.
