Lagos State government on Saturday, appealed to all stakeholders in the contentious issue of wearing hijab in public schools, urging them to maintain peace, law and order while awaiting Supreme Court ruling on the matter.
Speaking with journalists on the refusal of entry of five students of Isolo Senior Secondary School on Wednesday, September 18, 2018, the state’s deputy governor, Dr Idiat Adebule, said the government is working assiduously to resolve the matter.
She said that in the interim, the principal of the school has been redeployed to douse tension and allow for thorough investigation of the matter.
Adebule, who superintends on education sector, urged the public to be patient with government in dealing with the matter.
‘‘It is important for the general public to know that there are public service rules which must be adhered to strictly when dealing with public servants in the event that they are found culpable of any charges.’’
The deputy governor, who acknowledged letters addressed to her by Hijab Rights Advocacy Initiative, Muslim Students Society of Nigeria and Muslim Forum of Isolo, over the issue, assured that their grievances are being looked into.
