FG Denies Inserting Jewish Symbol On New Naira Note

THE Presidency, on Monday, rejected allegations by Muslim Right Concern (MURIC) that the Federal Government has replaced the Arabic sign on Nigerian currency with Jewish Star of David in the new commemorative N100 note.
It also denied that the Presidential Villa security was populated by Israelis operatives, just as it said it was completely untrue for the Islamic group to claim that President Goodluck Jonathan was anti-Muslim....
In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, regretted the allegations made in a statement signed by Professor Ishaq Akintola, the director of the group.
“The symbol his statement is referring to is the Star of David. There is no where on that proposed note as indicated in the specimen that has been widely publicised where there is any Jewish or Zionist symbol or the Star of David.
“The Star of David is a hexagram which is two triangles of equal lines superimposed on each other. The hexagram is a very popular symbol, but it is not on that naira note.
“The symbol that he is referring to is not a Jewish symbol. It is what they call spark security feature. It is an optical magnetic feature which enables the public to authenticate a currency note whether it is genuine or counterfeit. That is the function of that particular design,” the statement said.

  1. It amuses me each time I read story like this, especially when such is traceable to supposed educated people, more so, a professor like Ishaq Akintola. Having said this, may be I should remind this renowned Islamic scholar that most, if not all our currencies, carried Arabic on them even when our constitution recognises the country as a secular nation, a fact to which non-muslim citizens of this country have neither complained nor raised eyebrows. Please let's stop all things that tend to tear us apart, and concentrate on those that will unite us and make this country great for us all to live in.

  2. This is so painful, that some brainwashed human beings av been taught that they know god and how he thinks, and they av been able to establish the mind of god and so everyone must follow it or else they would be killed for god. Because god likes blood of non muslims, and he is a blood sucker so he must be fed. And the founder of this religion killed people, his members av been killing since then, pogroms every where in d world, but islam is peaceful as they claim. I know for sure this demonic acts will get back at them if they don't repent, hypnosis and brainwashing has been the process of conversion. I feel terrible that these people have refused to be humans before being religious slaves.
