My Question About Northern Nigeria

29

Travel people ; My Greetings to you all. I am a chronic lover of nature, travel and sightseeing. Sometime back In 2009 I traveled to Lagos for the first time where I met a brother that was speaking a language that seem very strange and beautiful in my ears. Out of curiosity I asked him. What language do you speak? He told me the forgetable name and the part of Nigeria (middle belt) or Koggi state to be precise. Out of curiosity I asked him, can you speak hausa? He replied me with a (Yes) He told me that he has lived in nearly to all northern state of Nigeria He told me that many northerners speak hausa because hausa language seem like a general language of the north He plainly told me that Hausas are not many. He told me that there is the wrong misconception that hausa's are many. He plainly told me once more that hausa's people are not that many by population. I told him that we the southerners think nearly to everyone from the north are hausa's and are muslims. He said the reason why we southerners think hausa's are the majority is because most northerners can speak hausa's languagr just as every southerners can speak pidgin/english They always told we southerners that hausas are the majority and someone from the north told me Hausa's are minors in the north How true is this?
