1. This submission is from MUSLIM PUBLIC AFFAIRS CENTRE, NIGERIA (MPAC) on behalf of the Nigerian Muslim community in respect to the case of Ms Amasa Firdaus who was denied access to the International Conference Centre, Abuja, venue of the call to bar ceremony of the Nigerian Law School on Wednesday December 13th 2017.

2. We wish to submit this memorandum before the joint committee to state our position on the issue and to represent our interest to speak on our submission at the Public Hearing slated for Tuesday, February 6th, 2018.

 5. We urge the joint Committee to uphold Ms Amasa’s rights to express her religion in a friendly atmosphere and one that is free from any forms of abuse, intimidation, harassment or discrimination. All members of this Committee took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of Nigeria and bear true allegiance to the same. Fulfilling that oath requires each and every member to speak courageously and act firmly on the side of the Constitution. The findings and conclusions of the Committee will allow us to send a clear message that the conduct of those who set upon poor students or those upon whom they exercise authority was wrong and unlawful. It is up to this joint Committee and the House as a whole to reaffirm the rule of law and, in this particular case, restore hope for a tolerant and diverse society where promotion of religious freedom and rights are enshrined in official policies.

6. Recommendation Further, we expect that as a follow up to the conclusions of the hearing, the Committee will; 1. Issuance of a statement of support to Ms Amasa Firdaus for her positive actions in repelling acts of discrimination directed against her on the basis of her religion and the violation of her constitutional rights. 2. Call for the reinstatement of Ms Amasa Firdaus and demand for full redress of injustice done against her. 3. Enactment of appropriate law for the Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination. 4. Criminalisation of any and all acts of discrimination against anyone on the basis of religion, irrespective of religious and ethnic background.  More >>>
