Few weeks ago a friend of mine who is from Potiskum in Yobe State told me that the Yobe State government had replaced the + red cross sign that has come to be known globally as the sign of hospital with H.
The Yobe State government did that because the plus resembles the sign of the Christian cross. This change was long before Governor Mai Mala Buni became govenor.
Some people have always not been comfortable with the sign of the cross, attributing it to Christianity. However, even in the Arab and Islami c world the plus hospital sign is widely used. There is a sizable Christian population in Yobe State.
