NBA president reacts to argument over Hijab

The President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, A.B.
Mahmoud, SAN, has reacted to the development where
one Amasa Firdaus was prevented from being called to
Bar due to the wearing of hijab.
On Tuesday, Firdaus, a graduate of the University of Ilorin
(UNILORIN) was denied entry into the hall where the
ceremony held by officials of the Council of Legal
Education (CLE) for failing to remove her ‘hijab’ covering
as directed.

Firdaus’ plight has stirred controversy online with
Nigerians calling for justice in respect to constitutional
right to freedom of worship.
NBA President, Mahmoud Olufunke Abimbola, in reaction
said the matter would be addressed, adding that the NBA
would embrace diversity.
According to him, the argument about Hijab is needless.

On his twitter page, @abmtwitt, Mr Mahmoud said, “UK
based Nigerian lawyer recognized for promoting diversity
in the legal profession. The NBA will embrace diversity
and tolerance in the Nigerian legal profession. The Hijab
issue will be addressed.

“The controversy here on Hijab is needless.”
The NBA President went further to share a picture of his
daughter being admitted to the New York Bar while
wearing a hijab.
