Nigerians React To Hisbah’s Letter To Cool FM To Stop Calling Friday “Black Friday”



Nigerians have reacted to the letter Hisbah wrote to Cool FM to stop calling Friday “Black Friday” ahead of today’s end of month sales.

The letter titled, ‘Letter of Introduction’ reads in part, “I am directed to write and notify you that the office is in receipt of a complaint for the conduct of ‘Black Friday Sales’ on November 27, 2020.

“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.

“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.”

NAIJA NEWS NG reports that the letter was signed by Principal Executive Officer II, Abubakar Ali, on behalf of the Commander-General, Hisbah.

Black Friday is an informal name for the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. The term is used worldwide to mean a day for promotional sales where goods are sold at discounted prices.

Below are the reactions from Nigerians on this.
