There are interesting facts about the Hausa tribe. The tribe is the largest ethnic group in Africa with 78 million people.
According to Africa Facts Zone, the Hausa language is the second most spoken indigenous language with 120 million speakers.
Those who speak the language can be found in Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Benin, Cameroon, Togo, Central African Republic, Ghana, Sudan, Eritrea, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Senegal, and The Gambia.
In other news, the lawmaker representing Nnewi North constituency in Anambra state, Nonso Smart Okafor, has built a house for three childless widows who were living in a dilapidated mud house.
The lawmaker said he learnt about the ageing widows' terrible living condition earlier this year, adding that they suffered severe cold whenever it rained.
The widows, who were married to the same man, were given hope of comfort when Honourable Okafor visited them in the dilapidated mud house.
The lawmaker promised to change their situation and fulfilled the promise.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young boy in Ghana simply identified as Sam has diabetes and had his father refuse to help take care of the medical expenses needed to get him required treatments.
The rather sad story was made public in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of the Crime Check Foundation.
It is reported that Sam desperately needed insulin to stay alive but that has been the headache of his poor mother as she struggled to find any means of footing the bills.
