KWARA: CAN seeks FG’s intervention, blames government for hijab crisis

THE Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has blamed the current crisis rocking  the state over hijab on the government under the watch of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

The Christian body made this known in a statement issued by its general secretary, Joseph Daramola, over the hijab crisis in Kwara State which degenerated into religious violence in the early hours of yesterday.

According to the statement, CAN attributed the resurgence of the religious crisis to the swift reopening of the  affected schools in the state.

The statement noted that the  state government failed to address the underlining issues before taking the decision, and asked the federal government to weigh in on the matter.

“We learnt that the State Government has ordered the reopening of the closed schools without resolving the crisis,” CAN said.

“Consequently, churches and mission schools are being vandalised with impunity by the hoodlums banking on the state government’s support in the pretext of enforcing the policy.

”Some innocent Christians are being violently abused and attacked under the watch of the Governor who is playing ostrich. Because it was his pronouncement on the issue of hijab wearing in violation of the court directive on the matter to maintain status quo until the matter is finally resolved by the court that led to this trouble.

“If any damage is done to any church or anyone is injured on this matter, the Governor of Kwara State will be held responsible. It is disheartening and unfortunate that a government that was installed democratically will become insensitive to the plight and the yearning of the people.

”As if the governor was voted into the office primarily to protect his own religion. This is unfair, ungodly and reprehensible.

”There are public schools and schools that belong to some Islamic organisations where those who wanted to be wearing hijab can be attending without causing the ongoing needless crisis rocking the state.”
