Osun Hijab Crisis: CAN dares Gov. Aregbesola; ...insists Christian students will continue to wear church garments to school

Osun Hijab Crisis
The Christian Association of Nigeria has insisted Christian pupils will continue to wear church garments and other apparels to public schools if Muslim students continued wearing hijab.

The Vice Chairman of CAN in the state, Pastor Moses Ogundeji, said this in an interview with journalists at the venue of the prayer meeting of the association called on hijab in Osogbo on Wednesday.
Ogundeji said,”The governor should be ready to expel all students in the state. He should be ready to expel those wearing hijab because hijab was never part of the school uniform.

“If the governor is fighting for the right of the Muslims, we will also fight for the right of the Christians.”
The Secretary of CAN, Apostle Joseph Olaide, also said while addressing the gathering that Christian students could not be stopped from wearing church garments.

He said the CAN should be notified if security men arrested any of the pupils, saying the leadership would take the case up.

Unconfirmed reports had it that some Christian pupils again stormmed Baptist High School, Iwo in church apparels on Wednesday in continuation of the Tuesday drama but were prevented from going inside.

But the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi’s intervention prevented the crisis which was brewing at the school.

The monarch said that he called the CAN leaders and Muslim leaders to his palace and pleaded with them to shun anything which could cause crisis.
