Muslim Leader Advocates Veil For Female Students

Published

on

Sheik Salaudeen Olayiwola, the President of Osun Muslim Community, has urged the state government to approve the use of hijab (veil) for Muslim female student in secondary schools.

Olayiwola, who made the call at a news conference on the Hijrah celebration slated for Nov. 15, said there was no secrecy attached to the use of veil in Islam.

Hijrah is the migration of the Holy Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina when his life was threatened by idol worshippers.

The cleric said the period marked a turning point in the process of Islamic movement when Muhammad preached against idolatry and corruption.

“We want our female children to use hijab in their schools. In Mecca, every woman uses it and the governor should allow female Muslim students to wear it as well.

“We appreciate the efforts of the governor in providing school uniforms for the students but he should include hijab in the dress code for female Muslim students,” he added.

On the social relevance of hijrah, the cleric explained that the celebration symbolised the decision to leave what had been considered bad to embrace a good thing in life. (NAN)

      I wanna know “Why this man is insane?” Girls is not the word for this. Everyone has their daughter, sister and if all Muslims wanna have this then what’s wrong with anyone. Don’t you know about The most Virgin Lady in the world. May I know who is and what would she use for going out?

      @Chiefpriest Ignorance go kill you and your kinds, when you always complain about every single thing the Muslim does to ensure the modesty of its people. You need to travel out to countries that are far more developed than Nigeria to know that hi-jab is given due consideration when speaking of modesty.
      When the Muslims introduced Islamic Banking you complain and say you want to introduce your banks too forgetting that even countries with the largest population of non Muslims do have Islamic banks in operation. You need to travel out to know that you are been fooled by the your elites.

    Its very unfortunate that ‘some people’ dont understand the definition of this simple word ‘modesty’. Its obvious that ‘some people’ prefer to see secondary school girls go to school wearing bikinis. I sorry for you. Thumbs up @adetoro & dont mind them. They are deaf, dumb & blind & I wish they return to the straight path.

Exemption Of ASUU From IPPIS Temporary —Ngige

Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that the Federal Government’s proposal to exempt members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is a temporary measure.

He explained on Saturday that this measure was pending the conclusion of the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Ngige who clarified the position of the government team during Friday’s negotiation with ASUU said that it was not true that the government had abandoned IPPIS or that ASUU should not be on IPPIS.

“I think it is better because a lot of people are quoting us out of context saying that we abandoned the IPPIS and that we said they should not be on IPPIS, it is not true.

“What we said in the meeting and what we agreed was that in the interim for the transition period that UTAS is being tested by NITDA and the Office of National Security Adviser for cybersecurity. For those transition period, ASUU members that are not yet on IPPIS will be paid through the platform with which they were paid the President’s compassionate COVID-19 payment done to them between the months of February and June.

“That platform is a hybrid platform between IPPIS and MINPSI platform for the transition period. That was what was used, it’s a hybrid.”
