It has been noticed over the years, Nioro has been referred to differently by different people or localities. Its well known that the neighboring villages in Kiang West refer to Nioro as Kabada, we the villagers called it Niorojattaba which is the formal name. I recalled hearing the people from the ‘Franci’ Medina Franci, Sarebitaye and the surrounding sometimes refer to Nioro as just Jattaba. There is also another name Niorotaubat this name very common from the youths in eastern part of the village.
I thought this another avenue for us to share about it this and just talk about maybe we can come to terms with one name
