Amasa Firdausa is finally called to bar
…but not without her hijab!
The tenacious Amasa Firdausa has won the battle against the Nigerian Law School in the long run.
Months after she was denied entry into her Call to Bar ceremony following her refusal to take off her hijab, the law graduate can proudly say she had the last laugh.
Today, she was called to bar alongside 11 other 2018 graduates in the July edition of the ceremony. The Nigerian Law School, however, graduated 1550 students who were successful at the April 2018 Bar examinations.
Firdausa’s victory has attracted praise from some social media users who also express that her stance is instructional:
“I am a Muslim BUT”…….
BUT…… Shut your mouth.
Congratulations Firdausa pic.twitter.com/1Sul5kX2K8

Congratulations to Amasa Firdaus who has now been called to the Nigerian Bar with her hijab. I am proud to have stood on the side of honour in her case. I am proud that I don’t bay with the mob or run with the herd. The truth will always prevail. https://t.co/dRcgr3UPqm

Yen Yen Yen Yen. She won’t be called to bar, she has lost, she has wasted her time, she should have just gone without the hijab, she has played herself.
