'GESKIYA' The Truthfulness Of The North. by Wsdm: 6:18am On May 27, 2015
'GESKIYA' means truth in Hausa language;
'De GESKIYA'? Is it the truth?
Who ever spend little time in the North- especially their markets, you will have come across this word.
For most people it is a way of knowing the true price of a commodity; Hausa people are known to place a triple the amount of price on a product. This will confuse you on how to bit the price down, but once you say 'De GESKIYA'?; the owner may most likely tell you the true price of it.
The GESKIYA of a word is most likely coined from the Muslim holy Book- the Qoran. It stipulates a stern punishment for liars. The North with predominately adherents of the Book may coin their ways of lives from it.
The Influence of GESKIYA in politics in the North can not be over emphasized .
Most politicians usually ask the populace to give them their Amana- meaning trust during their electioneering campaigns.
If you go by the popular votes in the North , it usually move the way of MAI-GESKIYA - meaning the one that has the truth.
Going by Buhari's antecedents; this is what make him so popular in the North.
The Influence of GESKIYA is what will make the North to continue to vote for credible candidates whom they trust and will deliver as long as votes counts.
With the pillar of GESKIYA firmly rooted in the North, I am proud to be from Arewa.

Gaskiya (truth) is one of the unique qualities of the northerner/HF, lending credence to the claim of most Nigerians that the northerner is the most honest person to do business with. Proudly Arewa.

In order to ensure the continuity of this entity, it would only be fair that power is rotated among the people, what we should focus on is pressuring our elected leaders to massively develop the north's resources for our collective benefit. Allah ya ba mu sa'a.

Are you talking of regional rotation or national rotation? If you are talking of national rotation; do others key into it when it is their turn to rule! Mind you that the two Southern leaders that benefited from the GESKIYA attitude of the Arewa jettison the arrangement: Obassanjo signed a pact of one tenure, he jettison it; Jonathan too did the same thing. How are we now sure that others will respect theirs when the time come?. The governors have a very great work to do to develop Arewa. May God see us through.

Poor and insincere leadership cuts across all regions, but I understand your point.

When you talk of a tribe with loving humans who exhibit high level of honesty, then you talk of the Hausas.



In ranking the level of honesty of Nigeria's major tribes . we will have


1. Hausa
2. Yoruba
3. There is actually no third.

I wonder. Also add those who nearly truncated the constitution by attempting to prevent Jonathan from taking over when his boss passed away. That one too na gaskiya?

Actually, Hausas are honest and trustworthy people.
If they weren't of religion of peace, they could have been the best people there is.
However, Usman Dan Fodio used their people to conquer them because of being extremely corrupt. Being corrupt made them perfect slaves to Fulani marauders.

However Yorubas? Jesus Christ, twah, spits.
World class back stabbers.
And as for east being the terrorists, yes o, u mean to tell me when you see terrorist abokii, that the terrorist abokii is the man who is trying to market his wares at Ariaria or Onitsha main market.

Boko haram is alien to the North. We in the North are up till now still bewildered as to what it means. When the GESKIYA regime is sworn in then we may begin to understand the true meaning of it. But as at now, we still see it as a political tools in the hands of enemies of the North.

Majority carry the vote. Surely in every tribe there are more than ' 10 thieves', but one thing to consider is the % of such thieves among the populace.
Re: 'GESKIYA' The Truthfulness Of The North. by Emphany: 10:31pm On May 27, 2015
The same GASKIYA has kept my loving country in rubbish for almost 40yrss while in the rule of the North.The same GASKIYA has kept Sokoto(the acient city where i presently am) in backwardness till date.The same GASKIYA has flooded the north with beggers and almangiri. Please OP keep quiet before the blood of innocent souls in Bornu State choke you to death.

So have you been to other places? What parameters did you use to reach your conclusion? Don't get me wrong, I love Northerners, Yorubas, Efiks etc, but when it comes to honesty, I get say which is. It is individual thing. That is ma point!
