Aregbesola denies ordering use of Hijab in schools

The governor of Osun State, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has denied ordering use of Hijab by female Muslim students in the state public schools.

According to him: “There is nothing religious in any of our policies. The fact on ground contradicts our opposition’s claim. The choice of my deputy governor tells it all, I knew she is Pentecostal of the highest order before I picked her. Everything we have done in the line of education is in line with the resolution of our education summit.

“Against all speculations, I have not ordered the use of Hijab, I challenge anybody with evidence to come out and show that I have made a proclamation on Hijab. If I have permitted Hijab will the muslim have gone to court to challenge it, is that not contradictory?. Is it a crime that I am a Muslim, is it because I struggle to be a good Muslim that everything I do is being misunderstood? I think I don’t deserve all these lies against me.”
