Hijab: Rename Muslim, Christian Schools, MURIC Tells Kwara Govt by Omooba77: 9:28am On Mar 20
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has urged the Kwara State government to rename schools whose authorities ‘have refused to obey court pronouncements’ and government’s directives on the use of hijab in schools.

The MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, gave the advice on Saturday in a statement.

“The (Kwara) state government must rename those controversial schools. They may be given names derived from the areas in which they are located. We like to suggest that, by extension, all schools in Kwara State which are still bearing missionary names, whether Christian or Muslim, should be renamed in as much as funding and the teachers’ salaries are still being paid by the state government.

“It is obvious that the Kwara State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is determined to forment trouble. It has refused to obey court judgements. It has also rejected government’s directive on the approval of hijab for female Muslim students.

“Worse still, CAN incited its members in the state to occupy the schools. It was this direct and open incitement which culminated in the violence witnessed on Wednesday, 17 March, 2021, in some of the schools. This is open confrontation, militancy, thuggery and hooliganism on the part of CAN, the school principals and teachers,” Akintola said.

According to him, “it is necessary, at this stage, for the state government to put its feet down as no responsible government will allow fanatical religious leaders who have no respect for the rule of law to cause anarchy under its watch.

Akintola said, “It is in this respect that we commend Governor AbdulRahman for coming out boldly to assert his authority in the unequivocal policy statement issued on Thursday 18 March, 2021.

“However, this statement needs to be followed up with actions capable of demonstrating that government has the political will to enforce its directive. Firstly, leaders of CAN in the state should be arrested and charged for contempt of court.

“This Kwara chapter of CAN is loaded with rebellious subjects and agents provocateur. They have no respect for social decorum, law and order. Government must make it clear that nobody is above the law.”

Akintola also urged the Kwara State ministry of education to take disciplinary actions against the school principals in those ‘recalcitrant’ schools for exhibiting divided loyalty and insubordination.

The audacity of this terrorist with mouth opened like a sewage is disturbing.


He's not even a Fulani but has been making crass statements all because of that piece of rag on his head.

What nonsense renaming is the confused dolt talking about? undecided

Does it mean that his people, I mean his state ,tribe or kinsmen cannot call him to order?

Or are they enjoying his dance of shame?

Instead of this man to be talking about the government handing over Missionaries schools back to church and mosques who are willing to run their schools the way they want. He is busy lamenting about nonsense for here.

We can all see how well run schools like Igbobi college, CMS boys grammar school, Howells, National college, St'Finbars college etc are well run by the church.

Compare this schools I listed up there to state run schools in Lagos State, and you will see how state run schools are no match for them.

SENSELESS GROUP..

Fact about Mission Schools in Ilorin DON'T LET THEM FEED YOU WITH LIES CONCERNING THE CRISIS IN ILORIN.
TAKE TIME TO READ THIS.
1. Hundred % funding by government is a blatant lie. Enter C&S college and you will see the names of individuals and groups that put up the structures ditto for other Churches who may not put names on their own contribution. You may wish to know too that where there are shortage of teachers, the churches hire voluntary teaching staff and pay them among many other contribution.

2. The practice of the proprietors being the one that appoints the principal of the school from among their denominational members lend credence to the grant aiding status of the schools which this government is trying very hard to take away.

3. These government in 2019 awarded the renovation of 29 Schools in Kwara State, not a single Christian mission Schools was on the list, whereas 5 Islamic/Arabic schools were included. If the government has been funding Christian Schools 100%, why then the omission or will the present administration be comfortable to agree that previous administrations were so generous to Christian Schools as to maintain them at a standard that does not deserve the attention of the current administration? When a clever man put up is case, he should know that the judge too is not a foolish mind. The Churches have being contributing heavily to maintain their schools.

4. If the government owns the school then it is fraudulent for KWIRS to continue to collect exorbitant grant rent from the Churches on annual basis over the land on which the schools were built.

5. The case before the court is on the ownership of the schools but the appeal court judges granted obiter on use of Hijab which was not the substantive case put before it.

6. The judgement was appealed and presently in the supreme court. While wouldn't the government await the final pronouncement of the supreme court before implementing sections of the appeal court judgement?

7. Where there are no sinister religious motives, the matter is a straight forward one. If Muslim students must use hijab in all kwara Schools linked to the government of Kwara State, then return the schools to the original proprietors who are not willing to compromise the standard of their own faith too. You don't make another child to cry because you want the one that is doing the needless cry to stop.

8. More so, the case is not new and the status quo has resolved by the Kwara State Committee on Religious Matters as far back as 2008 is that proprietors of faith-based schools should determine mode of dressing and devotion in their respective schools. Why is this government hell bent on changing the resolution that has giving us peace over the years?

9. The narrative to classify the mission schools as full fledge public schools and not grant aided school is to follow up the hijab issue with complete change of the character of the school including changing the names to government secondary school or anything that suit their ill motive thus erasing Christian Missionary signatures from Kwara State schools.

10. The lies contained in the SSG release and CPS tvc interview are one and the same and should be disregarded.

Mumu man !

Bigoted Yoruba man, there's war at his backyard where Fulani are killing, maiming, rapping and destroying people's livelihood with impunity, and up till date this terrorist has said nothing to condemn them.

It's Kwara hijab matter that's now his priority.

Don't worry, before you send the Yoruba land ablaze, the job which are been paid to do btw, the Almighty God Himself will send you packing, you will never succeed.

Every issue this man has pokenosed into remains a shadow of itself..

Judiciary Call to bar - different associations sprung up, the Judiciary nose dived..

Osun schooling - Osun state education that once used to be amongst 1st - 5th is no where in 1st 10th today..

Oyo parents refused when he tried to distort their education, God knows what would have happened..

Kwara that is not in a good 0lace educationally now wants to rub off the little it has.

He has successfully made visible the division on Yoruba muslims and Christians, a division that was never elaborate..

Mission schools have always remained untouchable, I wonder why a sudden change, I want to give you garri in my house because that is what I have, and you are insisting I give you rice which I don't have, they just want to compromise their standard.

When you are too deep into Islamic religion, you end up as terrorist, it is better to practice it without going deep into it,

How many government schools in Ilorin is a Muslim named school? There are Muslim schools littered around Ilorin why will your child you insist must wear hijab leave Islamic school and be going to ECWA school if not trouble,
What sort of nonsense is this?
