Katsina State is endowed with a varied ecology and has been divided into three agro ecological zones:

Zone I is the Sahel portion in the north
Zone III is the Sudan portion in the middle
Zone II is the northern Guinea savanna in the south.


 

KATSINA STATE

Katsina State (State, North-Central Nigeria). The State was carved out of the old Kaduna State in September 1989. It is bounded in the north by Niger Republic, in the east by Kano State, in the south by Kaduna State and by Sokoto State in the west.

 

The state is made up of two emirates which feature prominently in the establishment of the seven Hausa Kingdoms.

The lineage between Bayajida and Daurama produced the founders of Daura, Katsina, Zaria, Kano, Rano Gobir and Biram. The legendary Kusugu well where the snake called Sarki was slain is one of the tourist attractions of Daura.

Katsina was founded by Kumayo and before the Fulani conquest had been an important seat of learning and a commercial centre of the trans-Saharan Trade. It provided one of the earliest education centres of the north.

 

The state government in its bid to provide effective and comprehensive health care services for all and sundry expanded and upgraded all existing health centres. Rural health centres in Bakori and Faskari have been converted into General Hospitals. The Government also constructed the Katsina Specialist Hospital in its-effort to provide special health care services. There is a children's hospital located at Malumfashi.

 

Katsina consists largely of scrub vegetation with some wooded savanna in the south. There are 34 local government areas in the state namely as shown on the left hand side. The indigenes are Hausa and Fulani with pockets of other ethnic groups such as the Ibos and Yorubas. Read More>>
