In a Press Statement issued in Ilorin Friay by the National Coordinator of the Group Alh. Ibrahim Abdullahi stated that any order, tradition and culture that contradicts the provision of the Nigerian Constitution is ‘null and void’.

Alh. Ibrahin stated that some antagonists of hijab in public schools have always based their antagonism on the tradition and culture of their faith or the original Founders of Schools or their education system, Alh. Ibrahim stated that use of hijab could be likened the uniform put on by catholic Nuns which protects the morality of the young women folks; adding that if that mode of dressing could be allowed, the ban on hijab is highly discriminatory to the muslims and violation of fundamental human rights.
