Nigerian Lawyer Calls For The Removal Of Arabic Inscription From Currency

A court in Lagos is due to hear a case filed by a lawyer against the Central Bank of Nigeria to demand the removal of Arabic inscriptions on the local currency.

The lawyer, Malcolm Omirhobo also wants the Nigerian army to remove the inscription from its military logo saying it portrays Nigeria as an Islamic state contrary to the country’s constitutional status of a secular state.

According to Omirhobo, he wants the Arabic inscriptions replaced with either English or any of Nigeria’s three main local languages – Hausa, Yoruba, or Igbo.

The central bank had however denied the inscriptions were a symbol or mark of Islam.
