“We asked the school authority why and they said because they are following the government directive”.

“But the directive was that willing students can wear Hijab, beret or nothing on their uniforms. Schools like St. Claire and other mission schools have complied but when we asked why; Oyun Baptist told us that the school belongs to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

“So we are here to ask if the school belongs to CAN, Baptist or government. The worst part of it is that the school pasted on their signpost the picture of a female student using hijab and crossed it meaning hijab is not allowed,” he said. jamb results

Another parent, Ajibola Yusuf, said, “No parents will condole this, this is injustice. What we want the government to do is to enforce the circular and the constitutional right of everyone.”

When contacted, the Kwara State Secretary of CAN, Rev Timothy Reuben Ibitoye, said he wanted to verify the situation before responding.
