|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by No2Atheism(m): 12:54am On Sep 29, 2009|
Unfortunately i am not talking about discrimination against Christian Arab that is for another thread . . . most probably on the religious thread . . . cus that horse has been flogged dead and buried.
I am a pan-africanist and pro-black, hence i don't swallow any arab propaganda or western propaganda, because i am also an avid student of history hence i know what both arabs and whites have done to africans going back as far back as thousands of years.
Unfortunately, i have to lump in islam together with arab racism and subjugation of blacks becuase i have seen throughout history that arabs have used islam as a brainwashing tool to colonise people, brainwash them so much so that sincerely naive people end up even betraying their own people and tribes under the guise of islam.
I know islam is a false religion cus i have studied about it. I have researched it.
Europeans have basically done the same thing with Christianity . . . (another topic for another thread) . . . hence i don't support europeans either .

By the way Tpia, who are the Shuwa Arabs where do they come from and how do they relate to the middle east . . . .
I dont know much about them besides the fact that they're from Borno and Chad and are considered Arabs.
They migrated from somewhere either in Sudan, north Africa or the middle east ( possibly Yemen or Oman,imo though I could be wrong)and sometimes have large, melting eyes.
They're also considered very good looking in general. They keep to themselves a lot however, so there arent too many ways of verifying the myth
I've seen some pictures of people who I thought were Indian but was later told they're most likely Shuwa Arabs.

I don't think you guys have ever been to the north b4, the two writtens on the notes are English and transiliteration and sinserely most northerners do not understand them.A lot of them can not read Engkish and can read Arabic.
I think re printing arabic on those note will go a long way in communicating to them. so stop been sentimental about this issue, the notes will be cheaper, saves money for the economy and less rough handle by nigerians and if reprinted in Arabic will communicate to all

Sanusi dares not try that Arabic nonsense. He knows me now, he knows what i will do to him, Arabic ko, Araba ni
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by Beaf: 5:24pm On Sep 29, 2009|
They creep on you in tiny steps. Each time with one lame excuse or the other, before you know it, they dominate you 100%. It's got to stop.
Imagine the excuse, that most can't read the notes (but can conveniently read Arabic). Illiterate Southerners seem to cope quite well, afterall, the notes are in different colours, sizes etc. The blind also seem to do quite well.
The question therefore is; is there something so special about Northern Nigerians (even almajiri's) that they feel it is a God given right to lord it over the country? The answer to that question will resolve 90% of Nigeria's problems and all coordinated "religious" massacres by almajiri's (who we've been told, can read Arabic).
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by IG: 8:04pm On Sep 29, 2009|
@No2Atheism, since you are pan-Africanist and Black then I think where we differ is in the fact that you hate me, cos I am a Muslim. But I am a pan-Africanist and pro-black but unlike you I do not hate people just because we don't share the same faith, skin color or continent. The following quote is a long one and is targeted for the black man in you. Please be patient and read through it.
So, how far have you gone in researching about Arabs and Islam ?
Can we start talking now and keep the hatred aside?
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by illusion2: 9:44pm On Sep 29, 2009|
IG,walahi,so far you're the only northerner wey de make some sense here, . . . .,but tell me why would someone make the NIGERIAN ARMY motto as 'Victory From Allah',why? ONE NIGERIA !!!
The Army is NIGERIAN Army,not Usman Dan Fodio Brigade or Imperial Army of the Sokoto Caliphate . . . . . . . .
Please help me explain this one?
Like someone said,illiterates(unable to read or write) use currency world over,cos of unique size,colour etc,so why must the contentious 'ajami' or arabic text be on 'ONE NIGERIA's' currency ?!
I await your response
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by Beaf: 10:03pm On Sep 29, 2009|
IG,walahi,so far you're the only northerner wey de make some sense here
Na, that goes to gadogado by a very long shot.
IG is smart, but is emotionally attached to certain points (even against reason) like Mazaje.
Ndu_Chucks is not at all smart.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by ndu_chucks: 10:05pm On Sep 29, 2009|

|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by illusion2: 10:31pm On Sep 29, 2009|
ndu_chucks:Looking at the logo,it was originally written in Arabic (or 'Ajami' ) & the transliteration is definitely 'Allah' & not God !
Na wa o,this people don de screw us tey,tey ,thank God eye don de open !
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by ndu_chucks: 12:02am On Sep 30, 2009|
I don get ya point now. the motto "Victory is from God alone" no be the ting wey dey objectionable to you, na de fact say dem inscribe the logo in ajami wey you no like. you for say dat initially, instead of wasting our time na.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by IG: 12:56am On Sep 30, 2009|
illusion2:Thanks for the compliment but I think it came at the expense of other Northerners that contributed. Personally I think gadogado made some good contributions.
About the army, well it used to be the Royal Nigerian Army under British colonial rule. I do not know why they made that the motto. Maybe it's because of the Hausa making the bulk of the army then.
Talking about the caliphate, it's important to note that Sokoto caliphate didn't cover the whole North and doesn't represent the North like some southerners think.
illusion2:Like I said in my first post in this thread, I am for the Ajami because of it's cultural importance to the North. It doesn't matter to me if the Igbo and Yoruba on the notes will be written in non-english scripts. It's the Igbos' and Yorubas' choice. Many people are afraid of the Ajami script because they think it's Arabic and therefore islamic and I tried to explain that Arabic and Islam are not the same.
I think Nigeria changed it's currency from pound to Naira during Yakubu Gowon's time. So the Ajami scripts were approved by Gowon who is a christian. That brought us back to the cultural and not religious significance of the Ajami script.
The word Allah is what is used to refer to God in Hausa, the Arabic bible used by the christian Arabs also refer to God as Allah. So @No2Atheism, Allah is not a false moon-god as you claimed but the God also worshipped by christian Arabs.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by Beaf: 1:01am On Sep 30, 2009|
Like I said, if they put that Arabic back; things will burn. We will not accept any sort of internal colonisation, its gone on long enough. Even the blind can tell the notes apart, so mess the almajiri's.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by IG: 1:28am On Sep 30, 2009|
I cannot dig out their names right now but the first and second Nigerian graduates of Arabic and Islamic studies were neither Muslims nor Northerners.
Sooo, Were they also stooges?
@illusion2, That word in bold was borrowed from Arabic and means "I swear by Allah". It's like eye still neva open my friend .
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by gadogado(m): 2:08am On Sep 30, 2009|
these guys, you make me laugh, i have figured out that the only reason you are attacking northerners and claiming theres is a northern agenda of domination of the country is simply coz yar'adua is the president, as soon as he leaves, and the power rotation moves back to the south, you guys will stop talking about "northern agenda" in other words, you guys are simply competing for power which is healthy in a democracy especially in multi cultural societies like nigeria.
Dont worry, the power will come back to you eventually, north-south rotation of power will not be jeopardized in 4th republic nigeria, people are too politically aware for the north to dominate the country, so you guys should just wait your turn. what bothers me a little though is that unlike america where you have people competing for power based on ideological grounds (conservative and liberal) nigerians compete for power on the basis of region,religion and tribe (north and south) and those things are dangerous because they appeal to the passions and sentiments of people on a deeper level. personally, i would love to campaign for raji fashola after yar'adua's term runs out, fashola for president, or any other progressive!!yar'adua is a classical conservative elite and aristocrat, he believes in a rigid class structure of aristocrats and peasants or nowadays, elite and commoners.islam and christianity are not that different and they both come from the same region (middle east) the fundamentals of both religions are just about identical and the same God is worshiped (the God of Abraham and Isaac) so i believe you guys are merely politicizing something so trivial and petty lime arabic on the naira, does arabic on the naira change your religion? if you want to be broad minded then im sure you'll draw a conclusion that the religions are by and large the same and the same God is worshipped and if you disrespect islam then you automatically discredit and disrespect christianity, most of the Bible stories are found in the Quran.so why not be open minded and accepting instead of ignorant and petty??i guess thats the nigerian way.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by Beaf: 3:15am On Sep 30, 2009|
You are a Northerner so you don't feel it; it has nothing to do with power rotation. The South does not compete as a block like Arewa.
Since you've brought up religion in your argument, what would you say to Hebrew text on the Naira?
Read what Reuben Abati had to say on the same issue.

|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by illusion2: 10:05am On Sep 30, 2009|
gadogado:gado,im in the least interested in where the President is from,Im more interested in the northerners getting educated,so that every Friday isn't turned into a nightmare for southerners who believe in ONE NIGERIA &decide to live in the North(I missed death by whiskers in the Kaduna riots of Feb 2000,so i know what im saying). I am interested in politics of ISSUES & dats why i currently don't associate with any political party.
IG:I know its arabic. . . . . Ii live in the Gulf & I have absolutely nothing against any tribe or muslims. . .Im just concerned with the hypocrisy in Nigerian muslims approach their religion,its a different ball game here. . , they respect you and live their lives , . . .
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by Beaf: 10:24pm On Sep 30, 2009|
All traces of Arabic are off the Naira.

wait, ,,,,,,,that signature looks like arabic!!
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by $poOne: 10:50pm On Sep 30, 2009|
Let’s start campaigning for the impeachment of Yar’Adua now – he’s lame and ineffective. This way we don’t have to wait until Yar’Adua’s term runs out,
before getting Fashola in there. BTW do you mean until his first or second term runs out?
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by gadogado(m): 11:43pm On Sep 30, 2009|
there is arabic on the naira, i can read that stuff, its there so its not off yet,and it wont be off!!
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by illusion2: 11:59pm On Sep 30, 2009|
gadogado:Those are the old notes my friend. . .
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by gadogado(m): 3:49am On Oct 01, 2009|
so i guess you feel like you've won something, you're victorious right?i dont see anything wrong with arabic on the naira and i dont mind if theres no arabic on the naira,i dont think most average northerners care either way!
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by JomoGbomo2: 5:17am On Oct 01, 2009|
, Misplacement of priorities!!!!!!!!!!!,
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by illusion2: 8:45am On Oct 01, 2009|
gadogado:I haven't 'won' anything. . . . .it just common sense,reasons extensively discussed above
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by sheriffman(m): 11:16am On Oct 01, 2009|
Today is first of October,just a day after the new naira notes were released,I have just had my first feel of the 50 naira note on ploymer and having done a thorough look at the note,I fail to find any writing on it in Arabic.
So fellow NLs wat was all the fuss about?
@ poster i remembered I didn't like the topic of your post cos it was obvious you didn't read the papers then and didn't even listen to the CBN briefings.
But you can be forgiven if you say that Sanusi wants his name and signature on a Nigerian currency.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by pcicero(m): 1:42pm On Oct 01, 2009|
At last, So Sanusi didn't put Arabic? He must have been warned.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by kuramo: 2:00pm On Oct 01, 2009|
If Sanusi did not re-introduce Arabic text in the new Naira notes, the rational for discussing this thread is now irrelevant.
|Re: New Naira Notes! Arabic Is The Reason? by ndu_chucks: 2:34pm On Oct 01, 2009|
The rationale for this thread was not based on sound logic, but on tribalism and religious bigotry.
some of de posters blame fulani people for all naija problems. these posters dey too silly to realize say na bad leadership at federal and state levels wey dey kill nigeria. de governors of all de states for niger delta, for example, no be fulani. na de kind mindset wey dey wound us for nigeria wey de thread starter get.
