Girka is a village in Kaita Local Government in Katsina state. The word 'Girka' in Hausa may literally mean 'to base something in.' It may also mean (the spiritual activities of Bori.) But this meaning has nothing to do with Girka village etymologically or historically. Sauri is the title of the Village Head.

Thanks once again Altered Walter for the info. I just made some changes to my article that I think it is worth looking at and removing those 'challenging templetes'. Pls advise me. Shamsu Rabiu Galadunchi 11:09, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kaita, Nigeria, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hausa (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
