Lagos State Government Approves Use Of Hijab In Schools

The Lagos State Government has approved use of hijab (head and body covering for females) in public schools in the state. This was contained in a circular by the state government. The content of the circular was shared by the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) which had championed the use of hijabs and celebrated the decision.

“Since the case of the use of Hijab in Lagos State is still pending in the Supreme court of Nigeria, status quo be maintained, to avoid contempt of the court, that is students be allowed to wear Hijabs on school uniforms but same must be short, smart, neat and in the same colour of the uniform (skirt),” the government was quoted as saying in the circular.

In its statement, the MSSN expressed satisfaction with the decision which comes a day after the international school of the University of Ibadan in neighbouring Oyo State was shut after some female students were stopped for wearing hijabs.
