Christian students to wear church garments to school in Osun from tomorrow

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Osun State chapter on Friday began to mobilise Christian students to wear church garments to schools from tomorrow.

It was learnt that Christian leaders in the state had agreed that by Monday (June 13, 2016), Christian students will begin to wear religious garments, including boys brigade, white garments, choir robes, girls’ guide uniforms, among others, to their respective schools.

Sources disclosed that a meeting where the decision was taken was attended by heads of blocs of CAN and messages were sent to churches to mobilise their members during church services today.

The development came as the principal of Christ African Middle School, Osogbo, Mrs A.O. Micha, was said to have sent some female Muslim students, who dorned hijab out of the school.

It was learnt that a Muslim female teacher pleaded with the principal to allow the students to stay with their hijab, but the principal allegedly ignored her pleas.

When some members of Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) heard about the development, they mobilised with intent to storm the school, but the timely intervention of Osun State Muslim community prevented the crisis from snowballing.

It would be recalled that a judge of the Osun State High Court, Justice Jide Falola, had delivered a judgment allowing female Muslim students to wear hijab to schools. The suit was instituted by Osun State Muslim Community against the state government.

The state chapter of CAN, however, decried the judgment, vowing to appeal the matter in the higher court, just as it threatened to direct Christian students in the state to start wearing church garments to schools.

Mrs Micha denied sending female students, wearing hijab away from the school, arguing that she only ordered the female Muslim students to remove their hijab, insisting that hijab would not be allowed in a Christian school.
