Arabic Paper 2 May/June 2015

Part II Question 1

Talk on the role of Maghili in the propagation of Islam in West Africa as narrated in a book titled "The Future of Arabic Language in Nigeria.”


Despite the fact that this question was compulsory, very few candidates attempted it. This could be because it was a context question from a set text which they probably did not read. As for these few, they were able to write something on his biography but could not dwell on his role in the propagation of Islam in West Africa. As such, their performance was fair.
