How Unilorin Law Graduate Amasa Firdausa Disgraced Her Family During Call To Bar – Witness

amasa firdausa disgraced family

December 20, 2017 – How Muslim Law Graduate Amasa Firdaus Disgraced Her Family During Call To Bar – Eyewitness

One of the officials who screened aspirants during the Call to bar ceremony in Abuja last week has narrated how University of Ilorin law graduate Amasa A Firdausa disgraced her entire family during the event for refusing to comply with the dress code even after being politely asked to remove her Hijab for a moment.

Here is what the eyewitness wrote on the social media:

“I witnessed the baring of the lady from gaining entry into the call auditorium. Kindly note that I was part of the officials that screened Aspirants to the Bar on that very day and I participated in the entry screening for the four batches that were called on those two days.

I witnessed the whole drama … You don’t have an idea of the attitude of that religious extremist of a lady who was not ready to submit her personal sentiments to the rules of this profession. .. See eehh we have what we call “regulation dress code for ladies” in the legal profession.. The attire is clearly spelt out in our code of conduct book.. Hijab is obviously not part of it and you must deal with that obvious fact…

All our laws should not be bent for every wave of religious doctrines or practices… otherwise we won’t have a functional and fair law… My religion makes us believe that black represents evil..should I now wear white suit to law school or for my call to bar because of my religion?

There were over a thousand Muslim ladies we screened for the two days I was on duty ..why should her case be different ? We asked her to step aside and remove her hijab… Imaging about 5 law school lecturers from Abuja campus begging a mere aspirant to the bar to do the right thing and she bluntly refused. Pls we should stop giving this misfit of a lady an undue publicity for such an unpardonable display of crude rudeness to constituted authorities.

Denying her access to the call hall did not in any way violate her right to freedom of worship under Sections 38 or 39 of the 1999 CFRN , We all know that none of the rights enshrined in Chapter 4 of the 1999 CFRN is absolute. The denial was fair, proper and lawful. Note that some Christians prohibit wearing of trouser by ladies , but they allow their ladies wear it during their NYSC . Will you say they are not serious with their religion?

Pls we should all jointly condemn this misbehavior of the lady in question and put an end to this emotional sentiments we project here…

Buhari’s daughter during her call to bar last year… She wasn’t putting on her hijab ..but she wears it to any other places she goes…

I have met this Buhari’s daughter twice at Coscharis Office in Abuja and at both occasions she wore her hijab, but never wore it during her stay in law school or on her call day… The lady should go to court if she feels she is above the law or that Islam is superior our circular laws.

This country is not an Islamic State and will never be … If she is not ready to submit to the rules of the profession, she should as well go and study Islamic studies and bash her PHD in it.

I hope nobody will raise an eye brow if a Revd. Father insists that he should be called wearing his cassock and rosary? Hope you will be ok to attend a call to bar ceremony in the nearest future only to see a man wearing a red skirt decorated with cowries because that is what the gods have asked him to wear?

Do you know how many christians whose faith does not support the wearing of trousers but are compelled to do during the compulsory service? During NDA passing out parade, women (including muslim female soilders) cut their hair to the skin. No strand of hair is allowed on your hair let alone hijab. How many persons have challenged that?

The dress code for lawyers in Nigeria predates Nigeria. If you bend a little, you will have to continue to bend to allow other religions and faith at the end of the day the beauty of the profession will be lost. Law is not for all.

If you are too religious for law, try other professions. Law is not religious fanaticism. And we should also note that no attire covers ones body than that of a Catholic Reverend Sister, who took her religion very serious to the point of electing never to get married throughout her lifetime, all of them appear in the prescribed regulation dress code for ladies during their call to bar. Reverend Fathers alike.

The Lady could have still cover her body totally in her regulation dress without humiliating her entire family and kindred by bringing them to Abuja only to disgrace them by her unreasoned religious bigotry.

Law with its tradition is older than Christianity and Islam and should for no reason whatsoever be made a slave to any of the two. Let’s keep this debate straight and fair in order not to sacrifice the nobility of this profession on the alter of religious sentiments .

We should resist any unholy temptation to rewrite our laws just because of the attitude of one person who has refused to be purged of personal sentiments throughout her 6 years of education.

My people . . Just like the popular case of Kayode Bello in law school, this very case will soon be swept under the carpet. Just like Kayode had enjoyed his unprofitable publicity and now languishing in lonely regrets ,this very demonstration of foolery by the lady will still face same fate…

In two months time all these dusts will settle and the bigot of a lady will be left to suffer the consequences of her stupidity in solitude, while all her chanters will proceed with their normal daily activities.

In conclusion, if the lady should be donated the so much alarmed sympathy and condonation, the following should also be considered in other to balance the equation:

Muslim lawyers should be allowed to wear hijabs.

Deeper life members shouldn’t be made to wear NYSC trousers. Lords chosen lawyers can wear their bullet proof vests to call to bar auditorium. Celestial lawyers should be allowed to wear their white garments.

Traditional Idol worshipers like witch or native doctors should be allowed to appear in their red wrappers, feathers of birds, chocks and beads/cowries to law school and call to bar auditorium. Since we’re all mad right?”.

    Yea, start feeding us trash in order to sympathize with you. What her family think is irrelevant. This is about fundamental right. Nigeria is not secular state and you can not be more secular than the West. You have bunch churches everywhere, you even have 10 churches in a building with funny titles, and you called nigeria a secular state?.

    I don’t think you guys know what secularism means. If truly Nigeria is a secular state, then, demolish all the churches and let’s your reaction. This is not about her family. Please exclude her family form public issues. She can behave however she wants with her family, that’s their business. You christian try to be tricky. We wont allow that from you. You are becoming more and more intolerant in nigeria, somethign that didn’t exist before. If you criticise Hijab at Bar, did not christians criticize hijab at schools, airport, offices, on the streets and other busiensses?. It means you guys are up to somethign evil.

    If EU succeeded in brainwashing you that religion and personal life are separate, then, keep that trash to yourselves.. If Mary mother of Jesus(p) was here today, obviously she would disowns all christians in nigeria and around the world.

    The girl already compromised her hijab. She supposed to wear hijab over that stupid gown and that stupid slavery rag that you called wig they imposed on you. Your govt officials are sworn in by religious books. Defendants and plaintiffs are sworn by religious books and you still called nigeria a secular state?. You people are joking.

    Anyways, we are not interested in her family matters. That’s btw her and her family. And they don’t have to agree with her. It is part of her freedom of exercise. So do away with any attempt to divert attention from reality. There are many people in the West who don’t agree with their parents vis a vis. So why is her family issue matters?. And yet, you people are comfortable with dso called “nollywood stars” who are hell-bent on exposing their bodies. You all have nothing to say about that other than to promote it. Obviously, if ****** was truly a christian, definitely not this nonsense that you practice in nigeria and around the world today.

    Leave the lady alone. You are not secular state.

      Amanda you are not competent enough to comment on this issue. no wonder u didn’t show your real name and real self. you seems not to understand what is meant that a country is a secular state. you said if Nigeria is truly a secular state, all churches should be destroyed. Why reason like someone who is using her head to walk. your comments are absurd. there is no difference between you and that bigot. I won’t say much but before you comment on public post, always “look before you leap” good day.

      Come what do you people have against Christians? You use Boko Haram to disturb our peace, claim we enjoy more rights in a country that has sharia states and Islamic courts, yet it is not sufficient for you. If we have 500 churches, abeg wetin concern you? Our military leaders made us a member of the OIC, and we have read their charter, all it will take is for one ignoramus to pay the dues and we are there! Please abeg because Christians are quiet doesn’t mean you will insult us. For your information, Nigeria is a secular state, it is not against any religious practice that is not against the law. Build a million mosques if you want, or is there a law stopping you from that? Tackle matters and not people. You don’t subject everything to your religious ideals and beliefs, you are not the only ones in the country and if you can’t take it go to Saudi Arabia

    • micheal

      December 20, 2017 at 11:58 AM

      hope u are aware of your comments. every country has it law so today as far as we are concerned religious beliefs should be left out instead of you criticizing Christan why not face the fact an let who is wrong make an amendment to her career.
      1) how many schools do your so called Muslim has in Nigeria today that mostly hijab in not forced on the other believers if not average of them.

      2) do Muslim really grant admissions to other believers.

      3) in osun state today when the government of Mr aregesola impose the use of so called hijab in Christian school what was the outcome.

      4) please tell me if u didn’t go to a Christian missionary school in your days back.

      5) I want u to understand that the only way forward for us as Nigeria is to put our differences behind an let be honest.

      6). do have it in mind again that we are a colonized by the British an not Pakistan or Saudi not Arab countries OK in case u have forgotten.

      7) do remember that we are Nigerians have different ethnic groups an believers & language speaking country.

      8) finally let unite in every area an leave whatever religion we belong an move on with our daily life
      for us to put things right in Nigeria today let leave that our maker not our leaders cause u & I noes this.
      if the legislative or our judiciary systems today says u can dress up whichever way it pleases us to our whereabouts then it’s good for us remember every religious belief are the in our NBA
      thank you

      It is you, that does not know what secularism is. In the United States, there are churches and mosques everywhere and that does mean that it is not a secular state.

      Secularism means separation of church / mosque and State. Put simply, it means separation of religion and State. It is this, that the dumb lawyer failed to realize before making a fool of herself.

    The head line was so******, the issue is public and don’t try to provoke any religion or individual. The useless gown and the wig you put on in the court and send innocent people to the jail. Funny enough that wig was imposed on us by British, now if u goin to Britain, American no lawyer is put on wig in the court of law. That dirty and smelling thing you prefer over hijab.

    December 20, 2017 at 5:40 AM

    A lawyer who cannot comply strictly to simple rule,that one nah lawyer? You want hijab to be approved and your approach to it is disobedience of simple instruction. I wonder the kind of lawyer you will be!

    • Airat

      December 20, 2017 at 7:24 AM

      Thank you, Kayode.My take is still the approach the lady employed. It is sad to admit that some of us educated Muslims sometimes feel that we need to be aggressive to make others respect our stand and appearance. No,this attitude has to stop. I have come across some of our Ijab sisters and their conduct during real or perceived conflicts could be better… it is like saying ‘ I am a Muslim and I am educated and I can be as lousy as I want! or I know you are looking down on me because of my Ijab and so I will let you
      know that I can handle you ‘ ‘ No, again, you cannot. Let us strife to be assertive and not aggressive, please.
      I read Abiola’s daughter’s support for what the lady did and I was disheartened: I am guessing that Abiola’s daughter is polished—probably with a British or an American accent —and she would not adopted the style the lady used. Did Firdau expect the officials there and then to admit her? Common! Why not complete the process and come back and champion that cause? Why fight at the entrance, knowing full well it would be to no avail?.
      I am not even going to visualize what the hall would look like if the Ijab and other religious adornments and objects were allowed (too much stress and strain for me and my imagination!) but the approach was wrong.
      We are Muslims.We are not trouble makers. We do not fight the constituted authority. We explore good and effective methods to convey our grievances. Islam is a religion of peace.

      I understand that everyone feels the need to comment, but please limit your comment to what is logical. Don’t be stupid enough to start writing rubbish just because you can. This is not a plebiscite against Islam. It is a simple matter of one individual not wanting to forego her religious upbringing for the law. Yes she acted irrationally – she obviously knew the rules and refused to follow them, expecting them to bend for her. That’s idiocy… But keep your comments related to the topic at hand, and not an attack on Islam. The Christians who fund terrorist organisations are what then?

    This is funny, she knew the rules and regulations before embarking to study law profession in school, why breaking it on the day of her call to bar? This shows the type of lawyer she wud have become. The unfortunate thing is that the decision has been reached and no going back. I rest my case.

    When we are talking about wearing hijab to her call to bar ceremony I think if this was a rules and regulations she can never try it and she graduated from an University in which everything pertaining to the law has been taught so I think she knows what she was doing and been barred from call to bar I think law of Nigeria need to state the type of dress we must in each occasions we are going, hijab is not wrong for a woman to put on since it is the same colour with the garment she was putting on, pls I need a reply for this how can we identify a lawyer?

    Actually have nothing much to say on the Issue but your headline is what am not comfortable with, its very harsh. We don’t get to choose our family we com for lo only choose our friends, let her exercise what ever she thinks its her right. If its welcome good, if not thats left to her to deal with but saying “she disgraced her family” is way out it. Has her family come out to say such things?,so please try to choose your headline in a simple and nice way next time.

    @ pojo, good remarks. Don‘t mind that ITK ***** commentator called Amanda. Just like you said, its either her name is Amina or something otherwise, which muslim female goes by the name -Amanda?
    Check out her ****** comment here. At a point, she was even confused as to what to type. The question is- must she comment?

    @ Seyi, thats a good observation from you there.
    Hamza & Musa strike me like muslims but they have brains going by their comments.

    May God richly bless the writer for his explicit style of writting and accounts of what actually transpired on that day.
    Of all the points he made, the most salient of all is where he said, and I quote “THIS COUNTRY IS NOT AN ISLAMIC STATE AND CAN NEVER BE“.

    This ******* did what she did just to gain cheap popularity and sadly enough, she achieved her aim.
    My advice, she could have chosen Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey, Iran, Egypt, Iraq etc… to go study Law where hijab may be tolerated in the profession not here in Nigeria.

    I take a stroll…

    I had always thought that Amanda is someone passionate with her religion but her argument above have exposed her ignorance and myopic view of events. Amanda if you don’t know the meaning of secularism go consult your dictionary. In your quest of defending Islam at any given chance you end up exposing your ignorance and *******. That lady should learn to follow rules. What point was she trying to make by wearing hijab? is a call to the bar a religious thing? Looking at her she looks more of a suicide bomber than a lawyer.

    • Amanda

      December 20, 2017 at 5:17 PM

      It is understandable when you name is UZOMA, i don’t need degree to understand you are Igbo and christian. By default, a christian would have soft spot for fellow christians. Same to muslims. In matter like this, you do away with sentiment and talk reality.

      The reality is, if nigeria is secular state as you people chanting all the time, are you more secular than the West you copied?. In the West, you would see hijab judges and lawyers. Did they choose the wrong profession?.

      In the West you would see school children on hijab, are you more secular than them?

      In the West you would see bus drivers on hijab, did they choose wrong profession?. My understanding is that you christian extremists have being critical of hijab even for a very simple ting. This goes to show that you people are evil. You do not follow Jesus. You follow desires.

      Wh care what Bar rules are?. Asre your leaders follow the rules?. For being secular country is what should actually make it more accommodating for hijab. So obviously, you guys are not just ignorant but you are hypocritical and ill-informed. Hijab is identity of muslim women. NO ONE TAKES IT AWAY

        Amanda…you are misplacing the fact about the word “SECULAR AUTHORITY”. If the west or let me put it this way, the European government allow women on hijab to practise there profession as judges and lawyers is not yardstick that other foreign countries must follow suit. Each government around the world have there system of operation in matters of laws of there land. They may have a resemblance but they can never be the same. This is why we have constitutions guiding every institutions set up by the government. Nigeria as a country is independent. They can’t act or 100% copy the system of there colonial master. So if the west allow muslim lawyers and judges to practise there profession using hijab does not mean Nigeria government must permit such here. Nigerian as we all know is not an islamic nation and cannot 100% allow religious traditions or practises to be transmitted into the law of there land guiding there judicial institution. So there is nothing to argue about. The lady in question did awfully wrong by putting on hijab when she was called to bar. The law she read in the university did not permit such dressing code neither does the federal government law allow for such in her profession. Then what are you here talking about?

          Yet, you are copying them in almost everything. Your are incredible. Quote just one dress code of conduct according to Bar rules that says she can not put on hija.

            Amanda..stop your too much argument. If there is no law that stipulated certain dressing code for female lawyers, there is certainly rules of dressing that is acceptable to those studying law in the university. That is a fact! If there are no laws, there must be rule regarding a code of dressing for lawyers that every law students must abide by. if not, it then mean that the law school will lost it value. Because many lawyers will suddenly emerge with all forms of there religious dresses while carrying out there profession as lawyers and judges in the court. How will that look to you if such happen? Will that development dignify what judicial institution stand for? This is why nigeria bar association considered it as very wrong to introduce religious habit into a secular institution that has the government backing. If muslims are not pleased with the action taking by the bar association, then let them petition the government. And this issue will be debated and be iron out once and for all, perhaps at the national assembly. But I firmly believe hijab lawyers will not be acceptable to the government.

        Amanda this is not a tribal issue here. There have been some Ibos who are Muslims. Please face the fact; this so called lawyer to be have no business injecting religion into call to the bar. I wonder how she managed to make it to that level? You opined that in the West and America Muslim judges go to court in Hijab. I have been here for a long time I have not seen any judge or lawyer in hijab even though there are Muslim lawyers and judges. I know quite a number of them and they don’t dress in hijab when going to perform their duties. The main objective of Muslims in Nigeria is to Islamize the whole country; that will never happen. Are you people more Islamic than Muslims from the Arab world or Indonesia? It is you Nigeria Muslims that are extremists. Talk of hypocrisy, your Zamfara governor introduced sharia law in his state and all the Northern states but that is only for the poor (common people). The wealthy Northerners don’t get punished when they break the sharia law but the poor get punished and you have the audacity to call Christians and others hypocrites? Is your name really Amanda? all the Amandas I know are Christians; use your real name. Maybe your name is AMINATU.

    Why do people keep mentioning daughters’ of Buhari and Dangote as yardstick for Muslim girls . So because Dangote’s daughter removed her hijab during Call to bar, makes it right ? It is a sin for a Muslim girl who has reached puberty and becomes concious of men to remove her hijab in front of men that her not her blood lineage . Non- Muslims will not understand , neither would liberal Muslims (Muslims by name) understand the essense of hijab.

    Law profession is about observing rules and ordinances. If the young lady in question feels above the rules based on her religious belief then she should try other profession that allows hijab during practice. Not only the professionalism encompasses code of ethics and professional responsibility, but those aspiring to become lawyers are required to conform with the ethics stipulated in the code of conduct book. Particularly, the sections which “dictates ladies’ dress code.” In law profession, the dress code is not a debatable issue any where in the world. Is either you conform to the rules or you opt for another profession which proffer flexibilities. Personally, I think the bar association may consider a redirection for further training before acceptance to the bar.

    For a fact, Nigerian school of law or any other law society has not quoted a single code of dress code conduct where it is said that the student in question cannot put that wig on top of her hijab as she does in the picture. Media only continue to fuel the matter. This is how wearing hijab in secondary schools became sentimental talk by every sundry until the case was won in the court.

    Besides, apart from the fact that Nigerian constitution is said to be secular whereby everybody is free to display and practice his/her religion, why is the so-called court of law allow Qur’an and Bible as “tool of swearing” during court session, yet a lawyer wishes to abide by an injunction of that religious book and she’s being denied of her right?!

    Even our slave masters (UK, US) that we continue to follow after more than 5 decades, in law, governance and constitution allowed their religious citizens to wear whatever in accordance with their faith. Why is ours is born out of hatred and sentiment?

    I have no doubt that the sister will come out victorious.

    @naijagists, i think your website should be designed in a way that if someone comments on old article or topic, contributors would be notified by email.

    As it is right now, we have to manually check on old topics to see updates. Someone may have commented or replied but we wouldn’t know. Also, shouldn’t there be a format where pictures are allowed upload for illustration purposes?.

    Hope you get my GISTS?

    never seen such ****d person like so called Amanda with is ****** called Islam.
    they are fanatics in their religion because they grew up finding themselves to be Muslims and in some case they don’t want their evil exposed by light (Christ Jesus).
    this same Amanda and his fellow bloody regions men, are always first to course out Christianity when they heard that a fake pastor buried someone in his church. While they never say anything about their fellow ISIS and Boko Haram, who are lawfully according to quran fighting for their allah (a devil). I wonder why they kill brethren who convert to Christianity from islam, if the people who converted were actually the one who looses.But I foundout islam is a devilish practice and I tell you it a platform for evil people to find expression.
    they entice people into their evil religion by money, scholarship,wife,husband etc and I ask: why the enticement if the people you are converting are ones to gain?
    they even convert men by force or they get them killed.
    Amanda you leave in such a darkness, open your heart to seek Jesus.
    and I tell you people who are Amanda’s followers, don’t be surprise when you see people like Amanda give their lives to Christ even is a simple thing for God to do, many fanatic mallarms already encountered Jesus. but I pity you people because you may have *******in your sins before that happens.
    Accept Jesus, He is the Way, the True and the Life.
