What Is The Significance Of May 29 In Nigeria’s Historical Development?
Issues surrounding May 29th as "Nigeria Democracy Day” as adopted in this Fourth Republic raise disturbing questions.
It would appear that May 29 is a milestone for the cultural domination agenda of the Fulanis in Nigeria.
*May 29, 1904 - Historically was when Othman Danfodio and his brother Abdullah Danfodio primarily motivated by imperial desires, used Islamic religion as a tool to invade the Hausa (Habe) Kingdom. On that day Seriki Yunfa of Gobriyya (present Gusau, Zamfara State) was beheaded by the Fulani invaders. Danfodio then started invading and appropriating the Hausa land, and establishing green flags as a token of spiritual allegiance to Sokoto which he made his spiritual capital.
