He cautioned the state’s ministry of education against “insensitivity” to religious diversity in the state.
The Muslim students’ leader said, “We strongly express our displeasure on the SS2 Mock Examination Timetable released by the Lagos State Ministry of Education. We reject the fixing of examinations during jumaat time and demand an urgent reversal.
“The examinations are insensitively slated to hold during the hours of 1pm to 2:30pm on Fridays 24th September and 8th October, 2021 respectively. The subject affected are Technical Drawing, Food and Nutrition and Home Management
“We strongly believe this is a costly oversight that is against Lagos State Government’s preaching religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence.
“It is pertinent to note that Section 38 and 40 of the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria guarantee freedom of thought, Assembly, and Association.
“In the light of the above, we implore the Lagos State Government Ministry of Education to immediately effect the needed changes by moving the affected papers away from Jumat service time on the said dates and warn warns against further reoccurrence.”
