Sokoto is in itself a citadel of learning, home to revered leaders and revolutionary Sheikh Usman Ibn Fodio. We are justly proud of the quality of scholarship deeply entrenched in the research works of the founding fathers of the Caliphate.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo made this known when he visited Sultan Abubakar 111 at his Palace during the maiden convocation of the Sokoto State University where he shared some thoughts where society can engage in the great work of thinking, planning ahead and proffering solutions.

He further explained that, Climate change threatens our food and actual security by way of the farmers-herdsmen clash. To mitigate this, we are working with state governments through the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP). Solar power as an alternative to oil and gas is also being implemented.
