Admin this is a wonderful idea. nasan last year kunyi wani function just like this one only that I missed it by 5 days. Allah ya bada sa'a.
Kuma, kamar yadda maigida Indabawa yacce, any idea on how to convene such a get together for the 'settlers'  in lands other than kano?

Indabawa: this get together is designed so that people will meet up with others and chat in an 'unvirtual medium', what ever tha means. It also provides an avenue for the bachelors and bachelorretes amongst us find suitable partners to have their living-happily-ever-after moment (just kidding).  

so, more power to admin.......

This August meeting is a good idea.

I hope the second Saturday of August (14th August 2004) will be convenient to most of the KNliners. Anyway, lets hear from others.

Mhmmm its been a while since I last stepped toe to the general forum is full of politics wahala which is so good though am so anti-politics and the topics here burns my head lol.
Anyway just to know whats the REALLLLLLLLLLLLL REAAAAAAAAL REAAAAAAAAL REALLLLLLLLLLLLL reason for the get together? Am not opposing to it in any way. But to meet people is not enough reason for me. JUST TO MEET PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!! In my own little thinking and from personal experiances. A freind of mine has a webiste & the freinds holds like a get to gether once a year. Alot of activities are organised. Like promoting the website, giving out souveniers, getting people that will sponsor like a few Nairas monthly for orphans(no amount is too little, you know..........and things like that. Myself and a few freind some who are also members of this forum were among those enlightening the less priviledged & illetrate women about the importance of hijab wearing, social values, religious values & we even helped a few women get jobs doing handcraft: tailoring, knitting, pot making and alot more. You know the members of kanoonline should really do something for society, for the less priviledged people,for muslim ummah.

It sounds dull if people are just going there to sit & say "oh that Aisha or that Amina or thats Aminu" well to me!!!!! :?  Finger foods & drinks sai pictures............thats all!!!!!!!! Well it still sounds a good idea. Thou admin u betta have a long agenda. Its up to individuals to make their selves present I guess alot will be willing to go.

whoa Indabawa, slooooooooow down. It is true that Nurudeen goofed when he suggested that your clamor for a 'settler' get together is disciminatory. But that doesn't justify, not a bit, conducting our discussions in vernacular. I am sure so doing will give people the impression that we are a semiliterate bunch.

Lets maintain the status quo, anyone concur?

Of course myadudu, i'm just joking by implying to resort communicating in vernacular, but how could one make the likes of my "learned" brother Nuruddeen, to fully understand what your's sincerely meant by "why Kano", considering those of us that have become "settlers"?

Sincerely i would love to bankroll your expenses, but the aspixiating economy of Nigeria of today with the attendant suffering of people; as a result of the Obasanjo's misrule,it will be herculean for me to raise N280,000:00 simply to cater for you, while we have several pauparised and impoverished Nigerians who are essentially the victims of Obasanjo's collossal mismanagement.

It is the legacy of Kano people to accommodate and entertain their guests and i will be happy any time,any day to have you as a visitor,above all i believe our esteemed forumites would love to set their eyes on perhaps the only odd ball among the forum members.

Therefore,if you actually wish to attend the get together, then endevour to pronounce my name correctly.Nevertheless,we shall be happy to have you in Kano, so that you will have a first hand impression on the people you so much despise.

The British Council, Kano, has graciously agreed to provide us with a space to hold our Kanoonliners Get together on Saturday August 14, 2004, insha Allah. We held last years' event at the same venue.

So this is system-wide invitation to all KanoOnliners to get together at the British Council on Saturday August 14, 2004 for this year's annual convention.

It's really a fabulous idea from wherever it originates.And i believe no amount will be too big or too small.I also think that it will not be a bad idea if an account would be open so as to make it feasible for those who are willing but cannot attend to send their donations.

If Obasanjo have misrule, what would you call Abacha, IBB, Buhari, Shagari.. If really your people do not like Nigeria govt Please we allow you to secede, we would not try to stop you, I assure you of  this,... there would be no war, but joy on the street of the South and middle belt.. So people advice your people to secede and form Islamic Nation, where Islamic law  sharia is practice, and you people would great...

Therefore,if you actually wish to attend the get together, then endevour to pronounce my name correctly.Nevertheless,we shall be happy to have you in Kano, so that you will have a first hand impression on the people you so much despise.

Assalamu alaikum,
I will like to suggest, for inclusion in the get together Agenda, a 30-40 brain storming seesion on current problems facing Nigeria in general and the Northen Nigeria in particular.

FOR INSTANCE THE PARTICPANTS CAN BE GROUPED INTO THREE GROUPS, WITH LADIES FORMING THE THIRD GROUP EACH GROUP COULD BRAIN-STORM ON AN ISSUE, e.g.

1. Religious Crises: Causes, Repercussions and Suggested Solutions/Actions

2. Almajirci/Education In Northern Nigeria: The way forward

3. Corruption in Nigerian Politics: Solutions and Suggested Actions.

At the end of 30 minutes the groups come come ach and present their findings.

The result/communique could be published.

ABOVE IS ONLY A SUGGESTION, PLEASE.

Absolutely, it is a very good advice EMTL. But I think there is also one aspect that I wud like to add:

4. Social and cultural problems e.g Matrimonial  dishonesty, prostitution, marriage seeking...etc.

Thank you very much for all your suggestions, they are all very important and will make them part of the agenda. Eventhough at this time it may not be that possible, InShaAllah next year's get together, we will have some souveniers for all to go back home with.

Again thanks for all of your suggestions.
