A lot of Nigerians reacted to the news o twitter expressing their views as follows:

 

“@ShehuSani – The Hijab as a School Uniform should NOT cause any controversy.Those who want their Children to wear it,should be allowed to wear it.Those who don’t want their Children to wear it,should NOT be forced to do so.Dual uniforms has been used in Kaduna for over two decades.”

“@MFaarees_ There’s no single school in the North where non-Muslim ladies are forced to wear Hijab, but why is it that Muslim ladies are being prevented from wearing Hijab in some schools in some States of Nigeria.?? I think everyone has a right to practice their religion. Enough is enough!”

“@ChNnadozie – Thy hijab debate has resurfaced again. Schools have been shutdown in Kwara because of it.
Where’s the demand for quality education? They ignore the real issue, chasing shadows instead of substance.”
