A brief discussion of Sokoto State
Sokoto is a state in northwestern Nigeria, located on the border with the Republic of Niger to the north. It shares borders with the states of Kebbi and Zamfara. The region has a mix of short-grass savanna and thorn scrub vegetation, and is characterized by arid conditions and limited rainfall. It is subject to the harmattan, a dry and dust-laden wind, from November to March. The Sokoto River and its tributaries drain the area, with the Sokoto being a tributary of the Niger River.
Before 1804, the region was ruled by the Hausa states of Gobir, Zamfara, Kebbi, and Yauri. However, after the Fulani people’s successful jihad in 1808, their leader, Sheikh Usman dan Fodio, divided the territory into two spheres of influence. In 1809, he made his son, Muhammad Bello, the emir of Sokoto and overlord of the eastern emirates. Upon Usman’s death in 1817, Muhammad became the first sultan of Sokoto and the spiritual and political leader of the Fulani empire.
During Muhammad’s reign, Sokoto successfully quelled uprisings by the Hausa people. In 1853, Sokoto signed a treaty of commerce with Great Britain, and additional trade privileges were granted in a treaty in 1885. However, British colonial expansion was opposed. In 1903, the British defeated Sokoto’s forces and incorporated almost all of the emirate into the Protectorate of Northern Nigeria.
Agriculture is the main industry in Sokoto, with the floodplains producing crops such as peanuts, cotton, and rice. The upland areas are used for growing sorghum, millet, cowpeas, and cassava. The Bakolori Dam on the Sokoto River provides year-round irrigation, but the soil has become infertile due to irrigation and there is less water available downstream from the dam.
The state also has a significant leather industry, exporting cattle hides, goatskins, sheepskins, and finished leather products. There are also deposits of limestone and kaolin that are mined. Sokoto town which is the state capital, has tanneries, a modern abattoir, a cement factory, and a refrigeration plant. The city of Gusau has a modern textile industry, a seed-oil mill, and a soybean-processing plant.
The population of Sokoto is predominantly Fulani and Hausa, and the majority of the population is Muslim. The state is home to the Usmanu Danfodio University, and Sokoto town has several major roads and an airport. The Kwiambana Game Reserve in the southeast is a popular tourist destination.
