Sokoto State Nigeria’s most peaceful State

Welcome message from Alhaji Dr Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, The Executive Governor of Sokoto State Alhaji Dr Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko (Sarkin Yamman Sokoto) The Executive Governor of Sokoto State, Nigeria

our society, from education, health and agriculture, right through to housing and security. This ‘Partnership with the People’ represents our approach towards the continued success and development of Sokoto and its citizens. I encourage you to explore this wonderful region, discover the wealth of opportunities it offers and to join us in our efforts to create the most prosperous and peaceful state in Nigeria.

Overview of Sokoto State It is with great delight that I welcome you to Sokoto State. As a region, Sokoto has a rich and long history. Its foundations go as far back as 1804 when the then Sokoto Caliphate was founded by a group of committed men led by the Islamic scholar, Shehu Usmanu Danfodiyo, who sought to establish a political system based on the principles of universal justice. My desire to serve in the highest office of the State is borne out of a wish to continue this worthy legacy, in the belief that the vast potential of Sokoto will be realised through a well-articulated leadership framework that is all-encompassing and deeply rooted in the people. My focus and policy direction is therefore anchored on the objectives of educational empowerment, creation of opportunity and poverty reduction. This policy thrust rests squarely on the core values of creating an enabling environment for wouldbe investors in sustainable, industrial, social and economic growth. In line with this vision, the goals currently being pursued are coherently evolving across all sectors of 88 1 l Commonwealth Ministers Reference Book 2010

Formed in 1976, Sokoto State is situated in the north-western corner of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The state capital is the city of Sokoto. In 1991 and 1996 respectively, Kebbi and Zamfara States were carved out of Sokoto State by the then Head of State, General Sani Abacha. With a land area of 28,232.37 square kilometres, it is located between latitudes 11° 30' to 13° 50' N and longitude 4° to 6° E. To the north it shares a border with the Niger Republic, Zamfara State to the east and Kebbi State to the south and west.

Weather There are two major seasons in the state: wet and dry. The dry season starts from October and lasts up to April. This is followed by the wet season with average annual rainfalls ranging between 500mm to 1,300mm.

People and culture According to the provisional figures of the 2006 National Population Census, Sokoto State has a population of 3,696,999. This is made up principally of two major groups, Hausa and Fulani. The people of the state are predominantly Muslims and the Islamic religion provides them with a code of conduct and behaviour. Their mode of dressing is also in line with Islamic tenets.


Minerals

Alhaji Dr Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko (Sarkin Yamman Sokoto) was elected Executive Governor of Sokoto State on 14 April 2007, prior to which he held the position of Deputy Governor from 1999-2007. In an effort to transform the economic climate of Sokoto, Governor Wamakko has developed a blueprint geared towards the industrialisation of the state.

Sokoto State is equally endowed with an abundance of natural mineral resources. Minerals such as kaolin, gypsum, limestone, laterite, red mills, phosphate, both yellow and green clay, and sand, are available in Sokoto in commercial quantities. Mineralbased industries using these raw materials could be established in the state. All 23 local government headquarters in the state have been connected to the national grid and the present administration has also awarded contracts for the connection of 66 towns and villages.

Economic activities Agriculture Over 80 per cent of the inhabitants of Sokoto State are engaged in agriculture. They produce crops such as millet, guinea-corn, maize, rice, potatoes, cassava, groundnut and beans for subsistence, and wheat, cotton and vegetables for cash. Local crafts such as blacksmithing, weaving, dying, carving and leather work also play an important role in the economic life of the people. The state is one of the fish producing areas in Nigeria; a large number of people along the river basins engage in commercial fishing.

“Sokoto ranks second in Nigeria for livestock production, with an animal population in excess of eight million.” Sokoto ranks second in Nigeria for livestock production, with an animal population in excess of eight million. The availability of these economic advantages provides good investment opportunities, particularly in agro-allied industries such as flour mills, tomato processing, sugar refining, textiles, glue, tanning, fish canning and dairy production. Largescale farming can also be practised in the state using irrigation water from Goronyo Dam, Lugu, Kalmalo, Wamakko and Kwakwazo lakes, among others.

Interview with HE Dr Aliyu Wamakko HE Dr Aliyu Wamakko answers questions by Sylvia Powell, Editorial Correspondent for Henley Media Group.

S. P Since you became Governor in April 2007, what has been your priority for the development of Sokoto State? A. W Our areas of priority were those that are directly meant to enhance the development of the state’s people. Immediately after swearing-in, the first and foremost relevant thing was to motivate the Civil Servants by settling all their claims and outstanding allowances, and equally increase their basic salaries.

“The most significant priority areas were identified as education, primary healthcare, agriculture, and the provision of fundamental basic and social infrastructures.” This was a stepping-stone to getting the maximum output from the State Civil Service, which is the backbone of the government. After this, the most significant priority areas were identified as education, primary healthcare, agriculture, and the provision of fundamental basic and social infrastructures to the entire population of the state, encouraging the establishment of revenue generating industries, etc. With much gratitude to Allah, whoever visits Sokoto

Special Investment Destination: Sokoto State, Nigeria today will no doubt testify to our unrelenting efforts in improving the living standard of the people of the state.

S. P As an economic sector, how central is agriculture to Sokoto State? A. W Agriculture provides the most attractive opportunity of all economic areas in the state. It is the pivot through which the other sectors bring prosperity. It accounts for the majority of employed people in the labour force. Sokoto State produces its own food requirements and a wide range of agricultural products for local processing and exports. The availability of agricultural resources such as sorghum, millet, rice, gum arabic, sugar cane, garlic, onion, spices, acacia, etc, and of solid minerals such as limestone, phosphate, gypsum, kaolin, quartz and limonitic iron ore, has guaranteed that the patronage of agriculture at all levels has been given a high priority in Sokoto State. As a result, no stone has been left unturned in ensuring that all necessary requirements of the huge population of farmers in the state are supported by the government. This provision ranges from fertilisers to mechanised farming implements.

“Sokoto State produces its own food requirements and a wide range of agricultural products for local processing and exports.” S. P Where and how do you envisage that foreign investors will have a role? A. W It is our passionate belief that Sokoto State has a lot to offer in terms of abundant resources, most of which have remained largely untapped. The

state has therefore envisaged that genuine, able and willing investors may be interested in exploiting non-oil investment prospects, or establishing ventures that will promote the state’s industrial future. Since industrialisation calls for the concentration of investment in areas where industrial raw materials are found in commercial quantities, then it follows that the degree of industrialisation of a nation can be directly related to the level of utilisation of her agricultural as well as mineral resources. Most of our industries depend largely on imported raw materials. This has left us in a situation where our non-oil investment prospects are largely unexploited. Thus we want to encourage foreign investment in areas such as Portland cement and hydrated lime factories, fertilisers and the chalk industry, paint and pharmaceutical factories, red clay bricks, ceramics and tiles, and the glass and electrical bulbs industry. For these areas, resources in commercial quantities are available across the state.

S. P In keeping with its vision to transform and boost the commercial interests of Sokoto State, the present administration has embarked on some major infrastructure developments such as the Independent Power Project. What other similar projects are you currently engaged in or planning for the future? A. W There is no doubt that power failures have been one of the major problems bedevilling the establishment and maintenance of most industries in the country. Therefore it becomes essential to find alternative sources of power. This is why we had no hesitation in venturing into the Independent Power Project, IPP, to complement what has been provided by the National Grid, the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN. This IPP will no doubt go a long way in encouraging foreign investment into the state.

“Incentives are designed to promote investment, employment, sourcing of local raw materials and various other vital issues.”

contribute to development. Further to the IPP, the State Government has identified the need for good tarred roads within Sokoto city and across the state’s local governments areas. This will ensure smooth transport of agricultural products and raw materials. Housing and health centres are part of the priorities of the State Government in this regard as well.

S. P Sokoto State is blessed with an abundance of natural solid minerals, of which many are yet to be exploited. Where are the incentives offered in this growing sector?

“Sokoto State Government has put in place a package of incentives to attract genuine investors to the state.” It is a fact that Sokoto State is one of the most peaceful states in Nigeria. Any prospective investment would require this secure environment to flourish. Furthermore, the existence of such numerous agricultural and solid mineral resources distinguishes Sokoto State and enhances its attraction for investors.
