AMASA - Seven months after Amasa Firdaus was denied entrance into the venue of the call to bar ceremony, she's finally become a barrister.


The law school graduate, Amasa Firdaus, who stirred controversy for wearing Hijab to her call to bar ceremony has finally been called to bar.
Firdaus was called to bar on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, seven months after the hijab controversy.

Recall that December 12, 2017, Amasa was denied entrance into the International Conference Centre, Abuja, where the call to bar ceremony was taking place because she insisted on wearing the wig over her hijab.


Amasa's refusal to remove her hijab became a national topic as the Nigerian Law School alleged that her appearance was breaking its dress code.

She had described the Law school management's action as “a violation of her rights”, adding the hijab does not violate the dress code set by the law school.''

She also said that the restriction was a mere convention “that the British gave to us and we have to stick to it.”

According to the Cable, Firdaus said she deliberately wore the hijab to the ceremony to challenge the status quo.

Law graduates can now wear hijab to their call to bar ceremony
Following Amasa's decision to challenge the status quo by wearing hijab to the call to bar ceremony, her fate was left for the law to be decided.

Therefore, the Body of Benchers have on Thursday, June 2, 2018, approved the use of hijab for law graduates on their call to bar ceremony.

The conclusion of the Body of Benchers therefore means that female muslim graduates can now wear hijab to their call to bar ceremony.
