- The Nigerian lady who protested that she should be called to bar with her hijab recently said that God used her to break protocols
- The law graduate Amasa Firdaus said that wearing hijab doesn't violate the dress code set by the Law school
The controversial Nigerian law graduate, Amasa Firdaus, who opposed the rule on the restriction of the use of hijab during call to bar, was finally called to Bar on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, while wearing her hijab.
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that in December 2017, the University of Ilorin graduate was denied access into the hall for her call to bar ceremony which took place at the International Conference Centre Abuja for refusing to remove her hijab.
The issue raised controversies that in June 2018, the body of benchers responsible for calling law graduates to bar had to approve the use of hijab, and Firdaus was called to bar.
Speaking to TheCable on how she felt to have paved way for the use of the hijab during the ceremony, she said;
“I don’t feel any special
I feel grateful to my Lord. A Muslim will always be hopeful… It was not something I did myself. A lot of people were involved. I believe it is something that Allah has personally designed, I was just used as an instrument.
A lot of people were in hijab. I feel grateful to Allah, it is not something I did. It is what Allah did Himself. I don’t feel any special. I just believe Allah decided to use me for it.”
