MURIC To Tinubu: Ensure The Use Of Hijab In Lagos Schools by Cyynthia(f): 12:01pm On Dec 05, 2022
An Islamic rights advocacy group, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has appealed to the ruling All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu to ensure the enforcement of the Supreme Court ruling on the hijab crisis in Lagos State.

This was contained in a statement issued on Monday by the group's director, Professor Ishaq Akintola. Akintola begged the former Lagos governor to intervene in the matter, saying it affects the constitutional rights of Muslims in the state.

The Lagos state government had banned the use of hijab in public schools on the premise that it was not part of the approved school uniform for students.

Consequently, Muslim students filed a suit on May 27, 2015, asking the court to declare the ban as a violation of their rights to freedom of thought, religion and education.

The suit marked CA/L/135/15, was filed by one Asiyat AbdulKareem (through her father), Moriam Oyeniyi and the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria against the state government.

Justice Modupe Onyeabor of Ikeja High Court on October 17, 2014, dismissed the suit.

Onyeabor held that the prohibition of the wearing of hijab over school uniforms within and outside the premises of public schools was not discriminatory.

However, her decision was overturned by a five-member panel of the court of appeal on July 21, 2016.

The panel upheld the Muslim students’ contention that the ban violated their rights to freedom of thought, conscience, religion, the dignity of human persons and freedom from discrimination guaranteed by the 1999 constitution.

Dissatisfied with the verdict, Lagos state took its appeal to the Supreme Court.

In June, the apex court affirmed the rights of Muslim female students in the state to wear hijab to school.

Five out of a seven-member panel of the apex court held that banning the use of hijab is discriminatory.

But five months after the Supreme Court ruling, the state government has reportedly not made any policy or given any directive to ensure compliance with the ruling.

The statement issued by MURIC reads: "Strangely enough, the government of Lagos State is yet to say a single word since the judgement of the Supreme Court in favour of hijab. Meanwhile, the repression of female Muslim students continues as school principals and teachers claim ignorance of the Supreme Court judgement. They insist on disallowing hijab until we can produce a circular issued by LASG.

"Islamic organisations and Muslim leaders who were involved in the matter ran into a cul de sac as LASG is not forthcoming on issuing the circular. All efforts made to persuade LASG to release a circular failed.

"On the part of MURIC, we wrote the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, seeking an audience with her and she met us on Tuesday, 13th September, 2022. MURIC coopted other Islamic organisations like the Muslim Lawyers Association (MULAN), Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Federation of Muslim Women Societies of Nigeria (FOMWAN) and Coalition For Hijab for the meeting.

"Although the Commissioner promised to issue the circular, this did not happen to date. As the pressure mounted from the Muslim public who were eager to know why female Muslim children who use hijab to school were still facing persecution, we initiated a text message to the Commissioner as a reminder. This was on Monday, 17th October, 2022, more than one month after she had promised to issue the circular.

"But responding to the text message a week later on 23rd October, 2022, the Commissioner simply said the circular would now be issued by the Head of Service. We began to see delay tactics on the part of LASG as represented by the Commissioner. Or should we be tossed around like ping-pong?

"We are explaining all these so that Nigerians can see how we have waited patiently all this while. We approached the court since 2012 instead of going on protests because protests can be easily hijacked.

"Unlike the #EndSARS children of multiple anger who came with the diabolical motive to destroy Lagos (may Allah never allow that to happen), Islamic organisations in Lagos submitted themselves to the rule of law and refused to tow the path of violent struggle. The court case lasted ten years from 2012 to 2022. Haven't we been patient enough? Haven't we been law-abiding?

"LASG appears not to know that its silence over the Supreme Court judgement can be misinterpreted as a deliberate attempt to undermine the rule of law and it may fall foul of contempt of the highest court in the land.”

"We call on Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu to intervene. MURIC does not issue threats. We have never done it before and we will not do it now. Neither do we issue an ultimatum. But whatever LASG does with the hijab case on which the highest court in the land has made a pronouncement will send a strong message to Nigerians, particularly at this crucial period,” the statement added.

If you notice the way afonja Muslims wail anytime Obi practices his faith by going to church you'll understand that these fake afonja Muslims are highly intolerant!

Tinubu never become president and they are already persecuting him for going to church then ask yourself what will be your fate as a Christian when tinubu succeeds with his evil demonic muslim muslim Ticket?

Yet they said religion does not matter in the scheme of things? That Muslim Muslim tickets does not matter? MURIC? You can never separate religion from politics and vice versa.

Christians seek ye not repose.

-a). Christian seek not yet repose, Hear thy guardian angel say;
Thou art in the midst of foes, Watch and pray.

-b).Principalities and powers, Mustering their unseen array,
Waiting for thy unguarded hours, Watch and pray.


-c).Gird thy heavenly armour on; Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one; Watch and pray.

-d).Hear the Victor’s who overcame; Still they mark each warrior’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaimed, Watch and pray.

-e).Hear, above all, hear thy Lord, Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word; Watch and pray.

Yoruba Christians should wake up or risk being minority in the next 60 years.
they told you religion doesn't matter in southwest but they're making and stamping religious moves all over yoruba land.
they're solidifying their moves.
they told you that Muslim/Muslim ticket doesn't matter but can a Yoruba Muslim accept it if vice versa?
a day will come when they'll conquer all southwest state and convert Obas to Emir and tell you that it doesn't matter.
who would have thought that the same people that told you that religion doesn't matter in South West will drag hijab crises upto supreme Court.
now even mission owned school will have hijabs littering around its environment.
but trust me if it's other way round even non Muslim will be compelled to wear hijab.
what's their next move especially if they succeed with Muslim/Muslim ticket?
maybe implementing Sharia law in Yoruba land and enforcing it to the core.
it's time Yoruba Christians wake up.
you and these guys are not one as you think.
they made you to hate igbos because igbos are the only people seeing through their deceits.

wake up real Omoluabis and fight for your land from invaders
real Yorubas lagbaa

it takes only a determined mind to drag a case till Supreme Court and to think such determination is coming from people that have been deceiving Yoruba Christians that religion doesn't matter in South West just to keep them subdued and naive.
I thank God many Yoruba Christians are no longer falling for that crap and have been seeing them and their tricks.
they made sure that Osinbajo's ambition was dead and maligned him in the most wicked manner ever calling him unprintable names just because he's a Yoruba Christians even when he's over qualified than their preferred choice Tinubu.
they said Muric is on his own yet Tinubu urchins who are mostly Yoruba Muslims are already here on nairaland pre-primaries telling you that it's Tinubu or nothing, meaning they don't rate Osinbajo and will never support him should he emerged.
Same people are pushing for Muslim-Muslim ticket telling people that yoruba Christians will fall in line because they knew they'll deceive them with their usual lines that "religion doesn't matter"

The same Yoruba Muslims that said religion doesn't matter are gradually pushing for Sharia laws in Yoruba land and before you know it boom it's already in supreme Court and it'll be ruled in their favour.

Dear Yoruba Christians, it's time to wake up and stop living in lies and deceit
these guys don't rate you and will never do.
the facts are there.
it's their religion first and nothing else.

Yoruba Christians/traditionalists ronu
God bless real Omoluabis and Yoruba land.

The APC adopted the same faith ticket in a country that has never attained nationhood. These warnings were not only ignored but dismissed in one fell swoop by the APC presidential candidate who strangely believes that he can build a strong, secure and viable nation-state without first forging a shared identity, vision and values for our people thereby enabling us transit from citizens of a country into a nation of people with strong shared identity and values. This moves by Tinubu just for the purpose of playing religious card to win Muslim votes up North, if allowed to sail through, can only bring disunity and religious crisis in the country Nigeria.

In their convoluted posturing, APC have placed state-building ahead of nation-building; a task never before achieved in history and we need no seer to tell us that such endeavor is guaranteed to end in spectacular failure. No divided people have ever built any civilization.
To demonstrate that the church is right, it is not alone in condemning the same faith ticket. Other prominent Islamic clerics and Muslim leaders have also spoken in the same light. It is a good omen that both Christian and Muslim elites are not complacent over this matter.

Thank God, Christians across the Nigeria have a very good choice in voting Peter Obi of the Labour Party to power come 2023. Peter Obi/Ahmed Datti ticket is the only choice that can truly restore peace and unify the country.
