Brief Formative History of SLU
The Sule Lamido University (formerly Jigawa State University), Kafin Hausa was founded in February 2013 by the Jigawa State Government, after previous yet futile attempts by previous administrations to establish a state university for the State. On June 22, 2010, the State Government under the leadership of His Excellency, Alhaji Sule Lamido, the Governor, set up a Technical Committee for the Establishment of Jigawa State University led by Professor Munzali Jibril, a former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission. The committee submitted to the State Government the proposed University’s key documents such as the Academic Brief and the Draft Law.
The University is at present located on the old premises of the Jigawa State College of Remedial and Advanced Studies, Kafin Hausa. The site of the University, the Kafin Hausa town, is the administrative headquarters of the Kafin Hausa local government area. The town’s rising profile as an urban centre is slowly making it an ideal stop-over for travelers from major metropolitan areas such as Kano, Dutse, Azare, and Bauchi.
The University shall draw inspiration from and be a beacon of light to all the people of Jigawa State and shall dedicate itself to the creation of better living conditions for the people. The University shall do this through the application of knowledge and skills generated.
