Fani kayode says Firdaus was only being childish and disingenuous as Nigeria is a secular state and she cannot insist on wearing a religious garb during a secular ceremony.

The former minster, while reacting via his Twitter handle said, ”The girl that insisted on wearing her hijab during her call to the Nigerian bar was being childish and disingenuous.

”You cannot insist on wearing religious garb during a secular ceremony and she is not the first Muslim to be called to the Nigerian
bar. Nigeria is a secular state.”

Reacting earlier, Aisha Yesufu, co-convener of Bring Back Our Girls Group, challenged the Nigerian Law School on rules preventing the use of Hijab during its call to bar ceremony.

The BBOG co-convener called for rules that hinder fundamental human rights to be addressed in order for the country to grow.

Meanwhile, President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Abubakar Mahmoud, SAN, had promised that the NBA would embrace diversity.
