The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) said ongoing controversy rocking the school is condemnable and that the leadership of the school should be held responsible because “apart from other freedoms guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Rights document, would allow such development to happen in the school.”

Also, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) said “the poor handling” of the hijab crisis led to the present situation.

I am not in this to make money or show presence. Money doesn’t vote. People do. The poorer you get, the poorer your mindset. 

People see some of us who live abroad as people who are okay. If care is not taken, our children may not want to come home again

Everywhere on the street, you see insanity. Where do we start from? Is it health. 

I am coming to sanitize the system. I am a better candidate though I may not be rich. 

Almost all agricultural institutes are in Oyo State. When you travel to any part of the state. You see wastages. There is no single manufacturing company in.

If you keep developing Ibadan at the expense of other areas, you will just have many lifeless communities and one beautiful place.
