Hijab Crisis: Kwara orders 10 shut mission schools to resume today


The Kwara State Government on Sunday ordered the immediate resumption of students of the 10 mission schools affected by the hijab crisis in the state since February from the second term holiday, to resume today, Monday April 12, 2021.

A statement by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, said the 10 affected schools should resume to cover the academic activities lost during the period of the crisis.

She said that other schools which are not involved in the crisis would reopen on Monday, April 26, 2021.

Recall that the 10 schools were shot as a result of the refusal of their owners to allow the use of hijab in their schools.

The government announced the reopening of the schools on March 18, 2021.

The statement reads partly, “This is to inform parents/guardians and teachers that the 2020/2021 third term academic session for the 10 schools affected in the recent hijab debate starts on Monday, 12th April 2021.

“This is part of the government’s efforts to bring the students in these schools up to speed with whatever they may have missed when their schools were shut. This is especially necessary for students preparing for external examinations.”
