Date: 2022-01-25

Kwara State Government has reaffirmed the use of the hijab by willing Muslim schoolgirls in all categories of public schools in the state.

The State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Hajia Sa'adatu Madibbo Kawu, made this known during a peaceful meeting between Muslim and Christian stakeholders in Ijagbo, Oyun local government area, held at the Ministry Headquarters, Ilorin on Monday.
