Hausas And Fulanis Are The Most Hardworking In Nigeria. This is my view and I know that some people will not agree, but I have my reasons for saying so, just follow me.
If you take Lagos as an example: in the midst of the busy nature, full of buzzing and hustling, the Hausas and Fulanis are not found wanting in any way. But instead, they are in business, and industrious just trying to make q headway in ensuring their daily earnings.
It is believed that they are the most hardworking tribes in Nigeria and there is a reason for this. There is never a job too difficult or demeaning for them so far they can use it to cater for the needs of their wives and children back in the village.
They are engaged in quite a lot of “odd jobs”, the type that some youths from other tribes consider to be below their status.
Jobs like, shoe repairs, money exchanging, water supply business, castle rearing, goat selling, retailing or buying and selling, of anything.
All these jobs are what fill their pockets and make them to be financially liquid all the time but the Yoruba and Igbo youths are not cognisance of this.
During the festivities, the Hausas and Fulanis made so much money, especially the goat sellers amongst them. Some of them are located in Fagba and its environs, amongst others and were busy making their money.
It is believed that the Hausas and the Fulanis, after they have worked consistently for about three to four months, or bmaximum of six months, would travel to their villages to take a break from all the hardwork and especially to take the returns home for their families.
Before that however, they would have brought and introduced either their brother or friend in the business to take charge while they go to meet with their families at home.
This way, they ensure that there is a continuity in the business even when they are not there again.
I am sure you will agree with me that the Hausas and Fulanis are the most hardworking’ besides that, they are more intelligent than the Yorubas and the Igbos.
