Hijab: Move Missionary Schools Away From Kwara – MURIC

The Muslim Rights Concern has asked that the Missionary schools should be taken away from Kwara State over the Hijab crisis in the state.

Concise News learnt that ten schools built by Missionary in the state kicked against the use of hijab by female Muslim student.

This forced the tate government to shut them down as measure to resolve the crisis.

Reacting to the crisis, MURIC through its Director Prof Ishaq Akintola issued a statement demanding that the schools should be removed from Kwara State which he says is a Muslim state.

According to MURIC, “On our own part, we will not allow… evil to prevail in Kwara as they did in some states in the South West on the issue of hijab.

“The authorities of those ten missionary schools should be ashamed of behaving like oppressors and slave masters.

“Yes. We say it boldly, loudly and clearly. Kwara is a predominantly Muslim state. It is absolutely absurd for any group to think it can subject Muslim children to oppression in such a place. Infra dignitatem.

“Take your missionary schools to Rivers State if you want to change the identity of Muslim children by force. Nyesom Wike is waiting with open arms to accept you.

“Afterwards he has illegally declared his state a Christian state in violation of and to the chagrin of Section 10 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But not in Kwara State.”
