Law School Finally Calls Amosa Firdaus To Bar After Hijab Controversy

The Nigerian Law School has finally called Amosa Firdaus to bar. Firdaus was called to bar on Tuesday, July 10, after several months of controversy. The law graduate sparked controversy after challenging the restriction on the use of hijab during call-to-bar ceremonies. She was on December 13, 2017, denied entry into the hall for the call to bar ceremony which took place at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, over refusal to remove her hijab.

This action drew criticisms from different quarters across the country. She, however, described the action as “a violation of her rights”, adding the hijab does not violate the dress code set by the law school. Islamic bodies, including the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) rallied around her, calling for a review of the dress code.

In its ruling in June 2018, the body of benchers responsible for calling law graduates to bar approved the use of hijab as proper dress code. The call to bar this year saw the admission of 1,562 candidates among whom was Firdaus.
