Hijab: Kwara orders principals, teachers of 10 closed schools to continue

Hammed Shittu in Ilorin

The Kwara state government yesterday ordered principals, teachers and other staff of ten schools previously closed by the state, to report to their schools today or will face the full wrath of the law.

The reopening of the affected schools last Wednesday led to violence as some Muslims and Christians in the state exchanged words about wearing the hijab in the affected 10 schools in the state.

The development, however, led to the return of teachers and students to their homes, which led to the closure of the affected schools in the country.

However, in a statement issued in Ilorin yesterday, signed by the executive chairman of the state commission for teaching, Mallam Bello Abubakar, and which became available to journalists, he explained that the continuation of teachers is necessary in order to prepare for the final year. students on external exams.

According to Abubakar, “Any staff member who does not report for office would face full anger at the law, as the state government will not accept any act of disobedience.”

Abubakar also warned all stakeholders not to take the laws into their own hands, noting that a peace meeting between the government and stakeholders would continue.

He also appealed to parents and members of the public to remain calm because the government is at the top of the situation since its meeting with stakeholders is still ongoing.
