As part of remedies to the state's hijab dilemma, the Muslim community in Kwara State has proposed that the names of all schools historically owned by Muslim and Christian entrepreneurs be altered.



In a letter written to State Governor Abdul Rahman AbdulRazaq, the Muslim community recommended six actions for the government to adopt in settling the problem of female Muslim students wearing hijab in all public schools in the state.

Alhaji Ishaq AbdulKareem (Chairman) and Professor Ibrahim Abikan signed the letter dated June 7, 2022. (Secretary).

"The Kwara State Government should modify the titles of all schools historically owned by both Muslim and Christian proprietors by adding 'government' to them.

The Muslim body also demanded compensation for the family of Habeeb Idris, who was allegedly killed on February 3, 2022, during the hijab crisis at Oyun Baptist High School, Ijagbo.

They also stated in the letter that, "The Kwara State Government must build a new school mosque for Muslim students and teachers of Bishop Smith Memorial College, Ilorin, to replace the one demolished."

The Kwara State Government should appoint a new Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, while the permanent secretary in the ministry should be moved to another ministry.

"The Kwara State Government must enforce freedom of worship in our schools by ensuring that separate devotions are held for Muslim and Christian students at the school assembly, and no external Imam or Pastor should be allowed to participate in the morning devotion aside from the school teachers."
"The Kwara State Government should ensure, henceforth, that appointments and postings of principals into all schools should be based on merit and seniority and should be the sole responsibility of the Kwara State Teaching Service Commission instead of former proprietors as it is being done now."
