Controversy Trails Use Of Hijab At JUTH by Godjone(m): 6:31am On May 22, 2019
Muslim nursing students undergoing attachment training at the Jos University Teaching Hospital have alleged that they are being forced to remove their shoulder length hijabs by the Nursing Department of the hospital.

They told Daily Trust that they were subjected to humiliation by the Head of Nursing Department who allegedly gave them the option of either forfeiting the programme, wearing a wig or leaving their hair unclad.

the Head of Department. He asked us to leave so we went to him to plead and had to take off our head covering. He agreed to let us participate in the training but insisted we must all come to work the next day which was a public holiday to serve as punishment while some were given 10 days double shift as punishment,” one of them alleged.

The Coalition of Jos Concerned Youth Associations, in a letter by its chairman, Buhari Ibrahim Na Shehu, addressed to the Chief Medical Director of JUTH, Prof. Edmund Banwat, the action of the department as a gross abuse on the fundamental rights of Muslim nurses and students.

Na Shehu said it as a breach of the circular issued by the National Nursing Council which allows Muslim and Christian Catholic nurses to use their veils as sanctioned by their respective beliefs.

However, the hospital, in a letter to Daily Trust yesterday, described the insinuation that the department had stopped Muslim nurses and female nursing students from using shoulder length hijab as false.

The letter, signed by Bridget Omini on behalf of the CMD, said reports that the hospital had threatened hijab-wearing nursing students with expulsion was a fabrication aimed at tarnishing the image of the hospital and inciting religious disharmony.


It stated that while wearing full length hijabs posed risks to the students and patients in terms of transmission of infections, shoulder length hijabs were allowed in the hospital.

Every job has it's own ethics and dress code. As an engineer, a lady shouldn't say her religion forbids trousers so she won't put on coverall.

And if you are a fanatic, pls choose your profession in respect to your religion.
