Hijab Controversy: NBA President Supports Law Student, says controversy needless

The Nigerian Bar Association President, Mr AB Mahmoud SAN has weighed in the hijab Controversy generated by the refusal of the council of Legal Education to call a law student,  Amasa Firdaus to Bar for refusal to remove her hijab prior to the call ceremony held in Abuja.

The law student, a Muslim by faith wore the religious head gear, which is not allowed for the call to Bar ceremony and refused to remove same notwithstanding entreaties, consequent upon which she was denied being called to the Nigerian Bar.

Reacting to the controversy, the NBA President tweeted a photo of her daughter being called to the New York Bar with her hijab on and said the controversy is needless.

The picture clearly show that the NBA President is in support of wearing hijab to the call to Bar ceremony and may be a subtle call for change of the call to Bar rules
