Sule Lamido University, Kafin Hausa
The history of the University dates back to 22nd June, 2010 when the State Executive Council constituted a 9–Member Technical Committee chaired by Prof. Munzali Jibril, a former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC). The Committee submitted its Report on 31st December, 2010 which included an Academic Brief and the Draft University Law.
The State Executive Council, in February 2013, considered the Report and approved the establishment of a university to be called “Jigawa State University, Kafin Hausa”. The University was envisaged to be ICT-driven and entrepreneurial in orientation. The Academic Brief provided that the University should commence admissions in the 2013/2014 session and run through a four-phased five-year development, when it would have three (3) Schools, twenty (20) Faculties, fifty-nine (59) Academic Departments and two hundred and sixty-one (261) Programmes across the levels by the year 2032.
