Hijab controversy: Firdaus finally called to bar

Amasa Firdaus, the Law graduate who sparked controversy after challenging the restriction on use of hijab during call-to-bar ceremony, has eventually been called to bar.

This happened on Tuesday, seven months after the controversy.

In a list of the new lawyers called to the Nigerian bar by the Council for Legal Education on Tuesday morning, Amasa name appeared on number 788 in the new list.

DAILY POST recalls that Firdaus was in December denied access into the hall for the ceremony which took place at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, for refusing to remove her hijab thereby generating controversies.

She had described the action as “a violation of her rights, adding the hijab does not violate the dress code set by the law school but was a mere convention that the British gave to us and we have to stick to it.”

Islamic bodies, including the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), had supported her, calling for a review of the dress code.
