Thoughts Lead To Appreciation

Awareness: Language | HAUSA OR NOTHING

Everywhere one goes in Sokoto, one easily identifies the Hausa-Fulani not by their appearance but via their attitudes.

Where they are present whether in a position of authority or as private citizens, they do not hide their disgust for the freedoms of other Nigerians.

Anyone who is different in the slightest manner receives a scorch from the culture of the Hausa-Fulani.

It is common to find a heated debate between a Hausa-Fulani and a person of another ethnicity over an individual; the latter protects the right of that individual, the Hausa-Fulani will have none of it.

AlHamduliLlah for the good people of this great nation.

Allah bless my nation Nigeria. Aameen.

While discussions of culture might be deemed a sensitive issue, the rights and freedoms of persons who do not subscribe to Hausa-Fulani culture is supreme.

In addition, though the Hausa-Fulani in the cloak of their culture do not shy away from exhibiting cruelty to Nigerians, Hausa-Fulanis resist any attempt to table their attitudes to the world.

They do not wish the world to learn of the reality of the culture of the land.

I will continue to publish my thoughts on events in Sokoto and in the far North of Nigeria so long as I am able.

An aspect of the culture that have received much attention in my writings is ethnic discrimination.

Hausa-Fulanis victimize persons of other religions and ethnicities.

In a job application, any envelope that bears a non-Hausa-Fulani sounding name is discarded. The process ends right there.

The same occurs in an interview.

However, if it is discovered that a name belongs to a Muslim whose practice of Islam does not rely on the approval of the culture, the person’s name is relegated last and the names of Christians brought forward.

That is Hausa-Fulani dynamism for you!!!!!!! Serious laughter!!!!!!!

Should the individual as much as converse with a person of own ethnicity in own language, trouble starts.

Nigerians commonly believe that the Hausa-Fulani are pleased to hear others communicating in Hausa.

While that is true, there is an underlying reason: The Hausa-Fulani are averse to other languages of Nigerians.

    Uhmn… this is very interesting. Sadly, this problem of intolerance is a big problem all over Nigeria. More power to you. The more we talk about issues such as this, the more awareness we will raise and hopefully we’ll all lean towards acceptance of one another for who we are. Thanks for sharing.

      Folakemi,

      I cherish your appreciation of my writings.

      I am under immense pressure and intimidation to cease informing Nigerians of the reality in the North.

      But continue I must.

      My loyalty is to the Federal Republic Of Nigeria.

      The one and only,
      Umm Sulaim

        One love

    I don’t know what level of ignorance you assume people have or how insular you think we are not to know what you are saying is extremely prejudiced falsehood, people like you are the problem with Nigeria. We travel mingle, school together, do business, intermarry and the list goes on.

      Michael,

      Welcome to my world.

      Actually, there is a near consensus that one ethnicity no one wants in Nigeria is Hausa-Fulani.

      The real contention is: Do the Hausa-Fulani interact with other ethnicities as equals?

      In other words, exposure to other people in Nigeria is not meant to improve the mentality of Hausa-Fulanis.

      I end with a clarification:

      Each time, the term Hausa-Fulani occurs in any of my writings, it refers to Hausa-Fulani Muslims, for I am yet to obtain information on Christians and pagans of that ethnicity.

      The one and only,
      Umm Sulaim
