Gombe State (Fula: Leyddi Gommbe) is a Hausa speaking region. Jihar Gombe () is a state in northeastern Nigeria. It is surrounded by the states of Borno and Yobe to the north and northeast, Taraba State to the south, Adamawa State to the southeast, and Bauchi State to the west. Gombe, the state capital of Gombe state, was established on October 1, 1996, from a portion of Bauchi State.The state is one of Nigeria’s bilingual ones, with the Fulani constituting the majority ethnic group. With an estimated population of 3.25 million as of 2016, Gombe is the 32nd most populated and 21st largest in terms of area among the 36 states in Nigeria.
Geographically, the state is located in the ecoregion of the West Sudanian savanna. The Gongola River, which flows through Gombe’s north and east into Lake Dadin Kowa, and a portion of the Muri Mountains, a minor range in the state’s extreme south, are significant geographical features. Numerous snake species, including populations of the carpet viper, puff adder, and Egyptian cobra, as well as hippopotamuses, Senegal parrots, and grey-headed kingfishers, can be found in the state’s natural areas.
The Fulani, Bolewa, Kanuri, and Hausa peoples make up the majority of the state’s population in the north and center of the state, while the Cham, Dadiya, Jara, Kamo, Pero, Tangale, Tera, and Waja people live in the state’s diverse eastern and southern regions.
Up until the early 1800s, the region that is now Gombe State was divided up among several states during the pre-colonial era. Then, the Fulani jihad took much of the region and established the Gombe Emirate under the Sokoto Caliphate. The Emirate and the surrounding lands were captured by British expeditions in the 1910s, forming a part of the Northern Nigeria Protectorate, which ultimately united with British Nigeria before becoming independent as Nigeria in 1960. Up until 1967, when the Northern Region was divided and the territory became a part of the North-Eastern State, the present-day Gombe State was originally a part of the post-independence Northern Region. Bauchi State was created in 1976 along with ten other states following the division of the North-Eastern State. Twenty years later, the new Gombe State was created by splitting off a number of LGAs in the western region of Bauchi.
The main agricultural products grown in Gombe State include sorghum, maize, groundnuts, millet, beans, rice, and tomatoes. Services and camel, cattle, goat, and sheep herding are two more important sectors of the economy, particularly in Gombe. Gombe has one of the lowest GDPs in the nation and the fourth-lowest Human Development Index.
The Jewel In The Savannah is the motto of Gombe State. The Abacha military administration split off a portion of the former Bauchi State to create it in October 1996.
