Borno State Government Introduces Trousers For Female Muslim Students

The Borno State government has introduced the wearing of trousers for female Muslim students in government secondary schools across the state, effective from the first term of the 2023/2024 session.

Director, Ministry of Education and school management, Bukar Mustapha-Umara, on Thursday, revealed this in a statement in Maiduguri the state capital.

Mustapha-Umara said that every female student must always wear a trouser, a quarter blouse, a head tie, and a himar under the dress code, urging school principals to enforce compliance in the school.

He said, “This dress code is compulsory for all Muslim female students all over our secondary schools in the state.

”But for the Christian female students, it is optional. They can remain with their present dress code or change to the trouser.”

    1. Try to broaden your horizon, its kaftan and trouser, which is common in other states also. I don't see how this is even news, those that went to unity schools, know this. You can choose kaftan and trouser or skirt and top.

    2. I don't understand how this is News now. I went to FGGC Potiskum in the 80's and that's the Uniform. Muslims wore Kaftan with Trousers and tie scarf on their head while we Christians wore Pinafor with Beret and Seniors Skirts.

  3. See advancement, where school suppose dey try break into technological advancement na Trousersuna break intoπŸ™„

    1. God nooo πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  4. There should be no segregation of Moslems dressing from christian dressing. Not in this time of Boko Haram and co.

    1. This is a salient point. There should be one universal dressing for all students.

  5. I actually feel more covered up in pants than skirts. Good idea.

  6. In Kaduna then, it was same. Christians wear skirt n shirt while the Muslim = trouser
