In a statement by the Lawmakers’ Senior Legislative Aide, Engr. Dodo Almustapha, Hon. Saidu declared that the issue of religious discrimination is one of the most prevalent menaces in the country that has hindered national peace, unity and development.

The Lawmaker gave instances where some citizens lose their jobs/employment opportunities, or even outrightly hindered from having access to healthcare, education, finance, employment only on the basis that they profess a religion or that they manifest their religious belief.

He said “In October 2016, a qualified radiographer, Hawawu Saliu Olatunji, was disallowed from partaking in a job interview by the former Chief Medical Director (CMD) of one of the Federal Medical Centers in Nigeria on the ground that she wore a hijab. Also, on 17th December 2017, Amasa Firdaus was barred from being called to the Nigerian bar only because she adorned a hijab.
