Reno Omokri Writes On The Kwara Hijab Crisis

I read Farook Kperogi’s brilliant (as usual) piece, ‘Hijab As Red Meat Of Bigotry’, and while he made some very compelling arguments, there were one or two things I disagreed with. Professor Kperogi says, it is not unreasonable for Muslims to wear hijabs at Christians schools, since they are now state funded. That is arguable. Very much so. But even if Christians concede that point, then that liberality cannot begin and end with Muslims wearing hijabs. If we must be liberal, then our liberality must be total. Not all Nigerians are Christians or Muslims. African Traditional Religion adherents, Eckankar, Grail Message, Celestial and Cherubim and Seraphim should also be allowed to wear their religious attires, if they so choose. But doing so will just cause further confusion a...
