- RESPECT: Hausa people don’t seems to have respect for their leaders, most expecially giving respect to their parent it’s difficult thing among Hausa people, according to our observation on Hausa people, only 6% of Hausa people do respect leaders and they are likely to be found among Nupe people in Nupe communities or in Fulani communities, an Hausa guy or girl can call her mother with her real mother name => Hey Maimuna, I’m Done!, what cause this? Lack of respect and lack of home training.In Hausa land you can see Leader of Area or King can impose rules and they will bypass it, when they have clash with leaders, the youths will gather them selves with swords, stone, firewood, knife and other weapons to take revange, they have done it before with “Sultan” The King Of Nigerian Muslims.While Nupe people are peaceful, humble and agriculturalists people, they have no time to face their leaders, once leaders said This Is The Way We Will Follow”, the followers will responds “Let’s Go”.
