DISCRIMINATION/BAN OF SHOULDER SIZE HIJAB FOR MUSLIM NURSES IN JOS UNIVERSITY TEACHING HOSPITAL
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
The nursing and midwifery council of Nigeria has approved a shoulder size hijab for all nurses across the federation but The Department of Nursing JUTH have insisted on banning the hijab totally.
Staff were made to choose between the hijab or their Jobs. Some had to comply, making it difficult for others to opt for the Opportunity of serving the state via JUTH.
Students nurses on training at the hospital were told to use their natural hair or wig to cover it. They have been denied partaking in Trainings except without their hijab presently. It started since last week.
This is religious bigotry. JUTH is a federal Government organization. Why the discrimination?
Something has to be done.
Right to practice choice of Religion.
JUTH must comply.
