Kano Hisbah

Some Nigerians were left unimpressed with the Kano State Hisbah board after it was alleged to have ordered a radio station in the state to stop using the term, ‘Black Friday’.

In a letter trending online, the Kano Hisbah Board ordered 96.9 Cool FM, to stop using the term ‘Black Friday’ as it was against the religious beliefs of the people of the state.

“Accordingly, we wish to express our concern on the tagging of Friday as ‘Black Friday’ and further inform you that the majority of the inhabitants of Kano State are Muslims that consider Friday as a holy day,” the letter signed by Hisbah’s principal executive officer, Abubakar Muhammad Alli, read.

“In view of the foregoing, you are requested to stop calling the day ‘Black Friday’ with immediate effect and note that the Hisbah Corps will be around for surveillance purposes with a view to avoiding occurrence of any immoral activities as well as maintaining peace, harmony and stability in the state.”

However, twitter users were further outraged with the grammatical and spelling errors contained in the letter such as the spelling of notification as ‘notofication’ and the spelling of manager as ‘manger’

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and has been regarded as the beginning of the United States Christmas shopping season since 1952

It is usually celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.

Below are some reactions to the letter.
