‘There’s no law against wearing of hijab’-Hijab wearing lawyer who wasn’t called to bar says

Fidarau Amasa, the University of Ilorin law graduate who is at the center of the hijab controversy rocking the Nigerian judicial system, in an interview with PremiumTimes, said did no wrong in the stunt she pulled as there’s no law prohibiting Female Muslim lawyers from wearing Hijab to the Call to Bar ceremony.

According to the lady who wasn’t called to bar because wore a hijab to the ceremony, she will move further with her movement to allow Female Muslims wears Hijab to ‘Call to Bar’ ceremony.
“There is nothing like that (laws preventing the use of Hijab). When you ask them too, they tell you it is convention; that that is how it is done and it has to remain like that.”
Amasa says wants to change the narrative and give Muslim sisters the right to express their constitutional rights as enshrined in the constitution.
“I knew that was what was going to happen. My demand is that Hijab should be approved,” she said.
Firadau’s younger sister,  Tawakaa, who was also called to bar on the said day, called on Nigerians to support her sister’s cause which she says is not illegal.
“All we are clamoring for is to allow hijab in legal profession because it is our right,” she said
