The Kwara State government has disclosed that 10 grant-aided schools in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State, are to remain shut pending announcement of the state government’s position on the use of the Muslim head covering (hijab) in the schools.

The Secretary to the Kwara State Government Prof. Mamma Saba Jibril in a statement on Sunday said,  “This is to avert any breakdown of law and order while the government concludes consultations with relevant stakeholders.

“Members of the public are urged to remain calm and peaceful. Official pronouncement of government’s position is likely this week,

“The government urges parents, officials and authorities at the affected schools to maintain peace and avoid making comments or doing anything that could cause further misunderstanding and heat up the polity.” the statement added.
