Hijab: We’ll Use Lawful Means To Retrieve Christian Schools From Govt-Ajolore

Former Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Dr. Olusola Ajolore, has faulted the Kwara State government’s decision on hijab for female students in the state run government schools, promising that the Christian body would engage legal means to retrieve Christian schools from the government.

Recently, the North Central state approved hijab for govt-aided schools including those originally owned by Christian missions.

This will permit the usage of veil for Muslim females in Christian-established, but state government grant-aided secondary schools in the state.


Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Professor Mamma Sabah Jibril made the announcement in a statement.

Meanwhile, Ajolore, a former lecturer at the University of Ilorin and foremost Christian leader in the North Central has urged calm among the Christian faithful, disclosing that CAN would use “all the lawful means possible” to take back the schools from the government.
