A state in Nigeria’s North-East geopolitical zone, Bauchi State (Fula: Leydi Bauchi) is bordered to the north by Kano and Jigawa, to the south by Taraba and Plateau, to the east by Gombe and Yobe, and to the west by Kaduna. Its name comes from the ancient town of Bauchi, which now serves as the nation’s capital. When the previous North-Eastern State was divided up, the state was created in 1976. It initially covered what is now known as Gombe State, which was given its own statehood in 1996.
With an estimated population of more than 6,530,000 as of 2016, Bauchi is the 36th most populous and fifth-largest state in terms of area. Geographically, the state is divided between a small portion of the highland Jos Plateau in the southwest and the wetter, semi-desert Sahelian savanna in the north. Yankari National Park, a sizable wildlife park in southern Bauchi State that is home to sizable populations of waterbuck, African buffalo, patas monkeys, hippopotamuses, roan antelope, and western hartebeest as well as some of Nigeria’s last remaining West African lion, African leopard, and African bush elephant populations, is a key feature of the state’s landscape.
the present The Bolewa, Butawa, and Warji in the central region; the Fulani, Kanuri, and Karai-Karai in the north; the Fulani and Gerawa in and around the city of Bauchi; the Zaar (Sayawa) in the south; the Tangale in the southeast; and the Jarawa in the southwest have all lived in Bauchi State for a long time. The majority of people in the state are Muslims (approximately 85%), with smaller minorities of Christians and traditionalists (about 6% and 9%, respectively).
Early in the nineteenth century, the Sokoto Caliphate’s Bauchi Emirate was created after the Fulani jihad took much of what is now modern-day Bauchi State. About 90 years later, a British expedition invaded the Emirate and included it as Bauchi Province to the Northern Nigeria Protectorate. British Nigeria ultimately combined with this entity to form what is now known as Nigeria, which gained independence in 1960. Until 1967, when the Northern Region was divided and the area became a part of the North-Eastern State, the present-day Bauchi State was originally a part of the post-independence Northern Region. Bauchi State and 10 other states were created on February 3rd, 1976, following the division of the North-Eastern State. A number of LGAs in the state’s western region were split off twenty years after statehood to create the new Gombe State.
Being a significant agricultural state, Bauchi State’s economy depends in part on cattle and crops including cotton, groundnuts, millet, tomatoes, and yams. Since the state’s creation, agricultural production has increased thanks to sophisticated irrigation systems. Other industries include tin and columbite mining, food processing and canning businesses, as well as tourism at Yankari National Park and its Wikki Warm Springs.
