Culled from Wikipedia.org

Arewa is a Hausa language term meaning "northern" or "northerners". Its popular usage in contemporary Nigeria sometimes suggests a northern Nigerian regionalism or proto-nationalism. In both Nigeria and Niger, Arewa is the name of very specific historical entities: in Niger a pre-colonial state, and in Nigeria a small local government region.

Specific meanings
"Arewa" is derived from the Hausa word for "North", "Areoun", the "-wa" the typical "People of" suffix. In Niger, it has a very specific meaning. Arewa (Niger) is a small pre-colonial animist dominated state of the Dallol Maouri valley, known for the indigenous "Maouri"/"Mawri" Hausa culture. In Nigeria, Arewa Dandi is a "Local Government Area" in Kebbi State, and has been called simply "Arewa" in the past.

In Nigeria, AREWA (SPELT CORRECTLY) means beautiful in the Yoruba tribe.

Nigerian regionalist usage
In post independence Nigeria, some use the word as a general term for Nigerian Hausaland: a contraction of "Arewacin Nijeriya" (Northern Nigeria). Much of the north was once politically united in the Northern Region, a federal division disbanded in 1967, and was previously home of the seven Hausa states, later the Sokoto Caliphate in the pre-colonial period, and the Northern Nigeria Protectorate under British colonial rule.

Northern Nigeria regionalist groups, such as the Arewa Consultative Forum, the Arewa Media Forum based in Kaduna, and the related Arewa House and Arewa People's Congress are examples of this usage. These groups do not advocate independence from Nigeria, and focus on cultural unity of the so-called Hausa-Fulani community which forms the majority in the north of the nation.

Within even smaller regionalist circles, the term Arewa Republic is used as to describe a speculative future region, entity , or state that coincides with the pre 1967 Northern Region, Nigeria

Roflmao. They are afraid to stand on their own. What's the point of the flag if you don't have any ambition of getting your own sovereign state?

Read this and Reason


Ironically no one seems more ignorant of his history today as the Muslim. Muslims, like others, certainly know that whoever controls the past controls the future. But what they don’t seem to wake up to is the corollary, whoever controls the present, too often, controls the past. This is not simply to explain why they remain ignorant of their past but to make them appreciate the fact that those who control their present will not easily give up their past. As Muslims did (or are still doing) with their freedom and independence, they may have to do with their past, indeed their past is an important component of that freedom, for it gives them their identity and therefore the freedom to be what they are.

For, as history itself testifies, freedom is never given on the platter of gold. But without it no nation, or indeed individual, makes any meaningful progress. Our past gives us not only our identity and our worth, but also our bearings and our goals. It presents to us our role models and show us the things worth fighting for. Our future therefore is in discovering our past. This journey of discovery is taking us to some of the forgotten lands of Islam, the region of West Africa which had been an integral part of the Muslim world for over a millennium and which today holds over half of Africa’s Muslim population. We are visiting one of the greatest Muslim figures of this region.

Auwal

To think u got educated thru one of these Federal Scholarship schemes is sickening. It is a bloody waste of resources.

If the billions of Niara used in educating u had been spent educating many young men and women in the North, am sure the country would have benefitted more from it.

By the way, when is ur dad's tenor in the senate ending?

Yemmy , you do not have to insult him. The man is telling you what the majority northerner want. And you people do not believe, do you think , he is telling a lie. Go to the north and find out the truth for yourself, they want to leave too. Only some greed northerner who are stealing money from thier people that do not want to leave nigeria. they are less than 2% of the population. the rest majority are suffering.

Northerner want he break up of nigeria.

Re: Arewa Republic Changes Flag by BecomeRich: 5:14pm On Dec 21, 2008
Auwal you are a smart northerner. You are smart, most of your people are not that smart. mostly your politician. They think remaining in Nigeria is to the north benefit. they do not know it is not.

Let use sport as example. How many northerner make the national team in any game. less than 5% , why I may ask The answer is southerner do thing better. And How can you improve when you never get exposure. How

It is the same in banking and others. But as a country, you do not have southerner to take that position. they would all be filled with northerner and they can develop their skill. Either in the banking or otherwise,  But if you remain. Forever we would dominate you , from generation to generation. it can not be reverse.

Have you ask who introduce this system, his name is Ironsi. you think he would be silly to allow for unitary system if they were against his people. Answer is NO,  It is only there to dominate you people in all area of life. and for 50 years now,  have you not be holding to the president of Nigeria. yes your people have,  And Have they reverse development in favour of your people. the answer is NO

It can not be reverse . It is permanent thing that would stay for ever as long as your people remain in nigeria. look go and check what they have been posting over the internet google . it shows the south is more populated than the north.  What does that implication to the north. what it tell you is that under democratic rule. The south would for ever dominate the north.  because democratic govt is one man one vote.

In sure your people are finish for ever, you are going to be our slave if your people remain in nigeria. And that what this ONLY smart northerner Auwal is trying to pass on the message to you people. And your leader are too silly to see. And you have tharma and muzu, who claim to went to universities but can not interprete implication of northerner not leaving. 


tharma and muzu is what we call educated illiterate with university degrees. If you cant interprete implication, you a educated illiterate with university degrees.
Re: Arewa Republic Changes Flag by banom(m): 5:41pm On Dec 21, 2008
God in heaven,
I pray you today to make the northerners see reasons with Auwal in leaving Nigeria and become a nation of there own , so that they and us will stay independently and develope our selves and the talents you gave us and reach your ultimate goals for creating us , may you grant them peace , unity , love ,development and good governance as they become a seperate nation from nigeria, help them to understand them selves and not engage in any religious violence or crisis, may they never lack, more importantly God, may there leaving Nigeria be highly Expedited ,
In JESUS name ,,,,,,,
