KATSINA STATE

Katsina State was created in 1989 and carved out of the former Kaduna State. It 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 State 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. The State mainly consists of the Hausa and Fulani tribes.
