This writer seems silly. Every dick and harry calling themselves activists when all they do is write dumb articles without understanding the basic tenents of what activism is all about. Where was he when Kayode was been bullied by the law school?

He even looked comical stating that celestial church members should be allowed to not wear shoes for the call to bar. That is like comparing oranges to apples. Which exposes his lack of understanding of the issue. The hijab is an everyday wear for a Muslim woman and is to be adorned "everytime and everywhere" and not a ceremonial "I am going to my place of worship" once in a week thing. That is a huge difference. At least before you write an article get your basic facts right.


As regards the Firduas issue.

This should not be seen as a religious call but more of basic rights of a Nigerian. The Constitution which supercedes any useless laws/codes of the Law school geants the right to practice of religion in public and private without hindrance or fear to all citizens.

And by the way at what point would we stop dictating what people wear or not wear?

Women were not allowed to wear trousers in the US Congress not until 1963.

Women are not allowed to vote in most countries until recently.

Even till today women are not allowed to own properties in some places.

Women are not allowed to drive until recently in many countries and till now women are dictated to whether they should cover their hair or not for a 2 hour call to bar ceremony. Like wtf.

Of what Importance is the wig? Even the UK that we got it from is discarding that clownish thing and here we are carrying it on our head like a bag of kulikuli.

Set what ever uniform you want to set but people are allowed freedom to do whatever they want with other apparels same way you have graduation gowns and people wear whatever they want underneath it. Maybe when we start understanding what diversity means we would learn not to Lord over people who are different from us and dissipate more energy on simple things that just a mere application of commonsense would sort out.

I am sure she would sue them and I can bet 100% she would win it. Except the law school can prove they are not infringing on her universal rights to practice her religion.

If hijab should be allowed, then nuns, priests and even traditional worshipers should be inducted in their full regalia.

Isn't it nauseating that in a multi-religious, supposedly secular country and a secular institution, at a secular 2-hour ceremony, there is a matter of one scarf and everybody wants to shine with it? Would you just imagine how the hall would look like if everyone was allowed to put on their religious faith ornaments? You would be surprised to see a Sango worshipper with braided

It is, however, a neocolonial psychological issue, even with the NBA President, to think because people are allowed to wear the scarf in the UK or USA makes it necessary that we accept it in our professional terrain. 'Who is Nigeria to forbid what the West accepts?'- very faulty thinking. Let me ask you about the gay rights. Did we accept because the USA legalized it?




An emotion ladened opinion of the writer.

I have observed the whole imbroglio and concluded that hypocrisy is Nigerian and Nigeria is hypocrisy.

No where has it been proven that the lady violated any of the rules of the law school or the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria. Many have asked the law school to come out with the comprehensive dress code but all have turned deaf and dumb.

I've never read anywhere where Muslims oppose anyone for adorning their religious attire. If religious garbs are meant to be adorned everyday, every individual is entitled to it and is protected by the constitution. Pastors, Imams, Traditionalists all adorned their garbs to the most formal of occasions and were mostly exalted for showcasing their utmost spirituality. No issue because religious figures are worthier in the face of law than students of law.

This hijab issue is gathering dust because it most relates with Islam. Christians claim to be innocent but raised dust when Papa Adeboye stepped down as head of the church in Nigeria in line with a proposed Corporate Governance Code in Nigeria. A Christian proposed and endorsed it, a Christian implemented it under the current dispensation and the Nigeria cyberspace went agog with islamization agenda. Pastor Adeboye's stepping down wasn't lumped with 2baba's failed protest of masses liberation because the former issue was of more importance. Of course for political correctness, an innocent man lost his job without recourse to the welfare of his family, it was a victory for democracy.

The writer was fast to castigate the NBA president's assertion as a neocolonialism issue but has forgotten that the dress code, which has been abolished by the colonialists, was forced on us without recourse to our traditional space, custom and tradition.

Until we retrace our steps, evaluate our situations, make amends and corrections, this nation is heading for ethno-religious doom with the current constitution.

The day you stop putting this as Islam Vs Law School, that is when you will be able to think objectively.

As long as you do not see it as a movement to totally review the laws of the school and totally remove the dresscode completely but for them to allow hijab, you will be dancing around in circles.

Does she know thousands of cele fanatics that had to just wear white and black(even when black is solely not a color associated with the church)? I think this case would settle the case once and for all, what is Nigeria? Who owns Nigeria? Religion or sanity?
