Kano Currency Exchange Market In 1964 by ArewaNorth: 3:10pm On Apr 17, 2022
Currency exchange market
� Kano, 1964

Evident from the picture is the wide usage of the coin currency denominations

The business used to be dominated by older individuals, from the universal Hausa cultural belief pattern that older age is related to a higher level of trust.

So this is the root of all those mallams that will almost want to drag you by your shirt anytime you pass along Allen junction?

Their complexion though..... very befitting to their beards

This is beautiful.

Look how organized and coordinated they are.

They're freely sitting comfortably with zero worries and satisfied with the day trade.

Never been to the north but I just like my Hausa brothers.

Cool-cats who are being mistaken for troublesome Nigeriens, Chadians, Malians e.t.c.

I love the culture, aged individual means trust. Why? They have a name to preserve, then people were cautious about what they will be known for after death.
Respect was given to a trustworthy and a honest man. Now respect is given to men with money. No one cares about how you make the money. Even if you ask them the source of the wealth, they will tell you, why you didn't investigate the source of their poverty then.
But now, things are different, no one place value on trust again. That's why politicians are respected.
Shame on this generation. We place value on the superficial, what we see outside

The northerns have always allotted everything to themselves,as if they are the sole owners of Nigeria,even when this bastard that has finished the economy of Nigeria came into power,he withdrew or didn't renew the license of other tribes in the bureau de change business....Presently,only banks and Fulani tribes are the ones running the business.

One of the very key sector of Nigeria's economy that various CBN Governors have looked away to regularise...this sector has remained pain in the neck of CBN Governors, especially the current Governor, his policies summersaults since 2015...he just didn't know how to get it right with this market.

It will be unfair not to admit that Bureau De change unregularised activities in Nigeria is part of the woes responsible for Naira free fall.

Beautiful.
Most of these men and their sons grew to be wealthy merchants.

The likes of Dantata, Dangote, Abdulsamad etc.






Hausa's are generally lovely people.

The foolanis from Futa Jalon came and made the North a mess of itself.
