The National Amirah of the Federation of Muslim Women’s Associations in Nigeria (FOMWAN), Hajia Halima Jibril in a fact-finding mission was able to meet with the Law Student, Firdaus Amasa Abdulsalam who was barred this week from Call to Bar ceremony due to her refusal to remove the mini Hijab.  

While receiving the embattled Law Student, the National Amirah of FOMWAN, Hajia Halima Jibril said the Muslim Ummah in the country will ensure her studies of the law profession shall not be in vain. In emotion laden message, the FOMWAN Amirah said the incidence calls the Muslim Ummah to action, to seek redress while at the same time ensuring adherence to the rule of law.

Hajia Halima Jibril who was accompanied by the leadership of Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria (MULAN) said injustice done to one is injustice done to all. Thanking the FCT Chapter of MULAN led by Barr. Adams Oloriaje, the FOMWAN Amirah appreciated the body for rallying round the cause of Firdaus.

The Amirah appealed to the body of Benchers to re-appraise this case with a view to an equitable settlement that gives the ordinary Nigerian confidence that their right to practice their chosen religion will be protected by those expected to uphold these rights.
