Hijab: Christian Youths Allege Islamization of Osun State


By Yinka Kolawole in Osogbo.

The youths wing of the Christain Association of Nigeria, CAN, Osun State, has noted that
Governor Rauf Aregbesola has mapped out plans to erase all traces of Christians’ heritage in the state particularly in public schools.

In a communique issued at the end of their meeting and signed by the state Chairman, Owo-Ofe, A.N, and the state Secretary, Evangelist Timilehin Popoola, the youths also opined that Aregbesola is already working towards a process of Islamization of the state which they said was earlier stated in 2012 by the Directorate of Military
Intelligence and corroborated by OSCAN in 2014.

The youths who noted that they would oppose this dubious agenda of Aregbesola urged the Governor not to implement the judgement of  Justice Saka Falola which he delivered on Friday 02 June, 2016, that female pupils in all public schools should be allowed to wear hijab to schools without any harassment.
