2020; The New Way Of Writing Dates by chieyine(m): 1:49pm On Dec 27, 2019
READ THIS; VERY IMPORTANT

While writing a date on any document in the upcoming year 2020, we should write it in its full format, e.g. 31/01/2020 and not as 31/01/20.
This is because anyone can change 31/01/20 to 31/01/2000 or 31/01/2019 or any year in between 2000 to 2020 to suit his convenience.

That can render the document invalid or used for Financial forgery.
So let us be cautious about this.
Don't write and also don't accept it in any documents.
This problem will persist only during the year 2020.
Please let's be cautious

What of the times we were writing 30/1/19?
Anyone could have changed it to 30/1/1999,1991 or 1990 to suit his convenience too.

There is no need to argue, it is left for you to abide by it or not

We weren't writing it as 30/1/19. Rather we wrote them as follows
30/1/1994 => 30/1/94
30/1/1992 => 30/1/92
So ppl couldn't have forged it then.

I believe he was talking about changing 2019 written as “19” to 1999 etc

This thread is pointless by the way, was hoping to see something reasonable

Oga what of2019 nko? We wrote it as 12/4/19
So someone could have still written it as 12/4/1992.

A fraudulent mind is a fraudulent mind it's not just about 2020 thing it's being there all the time
