MAJOR ISLAMIC AGENDA UNDER BUHARI!!! Nigerians React Heavily To Amasa Firdaus’ Call To Bar, Seven Months After Hijab Controversy

Following the call to the bar of Amasa Firdaus, a Nigerian Law School graduate, who was denied access to the event, in December, 2017, Nigerians have taken to the social media, to express their opinions with the outcome of the controversy.

Firdaus, a graduate of the University of Ilorin, was on Tuesday, finally allowed to participate in the call to bar ceremony with her hijab.

This comes seven months after she insisted, against what was the tradition, on wearing the hijab during the ceremony, an action that triggered intense debate on the social media, with many demanding #JusticeForFirdaus.

Joe Abah, the Country Director of Development Associates International, DAI, who in December said that Firdaus should have been called to bar with her hijab, congratulated her in a recent tweet.

“Congratulations to Amasa Firdaus, who has now been called to the Nigerian Bar with her hijab”, Abah said.

“I am proud to have stood on the side of honour in her case. I am proud that I do not bay with the mob, or run with the herd. The truth will always prevail.”

Bashir Ahmad, a Personal Assistant to President Buhari on New Media, also tweeted to congratulate Firdaus, calling the victory, “one of the many good advantages of social media.”

Similarly, Ahmed Adetola Kazeem, the Executive Director of Prisoners Rights Advocacy Initiative, PRAI, thanked “all men of goodwill from other faiths”, and the parents of Firdaus for supporting the cause, since it started.

Here are some of the tweets:

“Congratulations BARRISTER Amasa Firdaus who was called to bar today with her Hijab. That didn’t come so easy, her victory is one of the many good advantages of Social Media. She fought not only for herself but for the generation to come. History will surely be kind to her.”

“Congratulations to Amasa Firdaus on your call to Bar. I was one of those that blasted her rebellion last December but now that the Body of Chambers has approved the use of hijab there’s a lesson to learn. We must challenge the status quo passed down to us by the oyibos. She’s a hero.”
