About Sokoto State University
Sokoto town as the seat of the caliphate was built by Sultan Muhammad Bello, who was son to Sheikh Usman bin Fodio, the leader of the Sokoto Jihad of 1804.
The area that constitutes the present day Sokoto State predates the creation of Nigeria, the Sokoto Caliphate, the Gobir Kingdom, and the Songhai or Kebbi Kingdom of Muhammad Kotal Kanta. The area rather had witnessed the wanderings and crisscrossing of Stone-age man as recorded by Basil Davidson and Garba Nadama in their various sources.
Perhaps, the full account of the civilization that had developed in this part of the world could be fully grasped if the works of heinrich Barth are fully read, in conjunction with that of the great Arabs and Berbers travelers of Western Sudan. This civilization existed as early as 500AD and up to 1500AD, and its Central activity was that of acquiring Islamic knowledge and History.
This civilization brought about the appearance of the Great Kingdom of Kanta of Kebbi and the subsequent Hausa-City states and later, the Sokoto Caliphate. The Sokoto Caliphate saw to the emergence for the first time of a qualitative Political Arrangement that witnessed the development of a central governance structure with flag bearers controlling the units of the confederation. Education was not centrally organized in the Sokoto polity, so also were other areas of human endeavours. Every confederating unit was allowed to evolve its’ own organizations.
