With 153,000 (2009) residents, Dutse, Hadejia (111,000), Gumel (43,000), and Birnin Kudu are Jigawa State’s major cities (27,000). Dutse is Jigawa’s capital. In 1991, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida formed the state. Dutse (Dutsi) was named for its rocky terrain.
The village is covered with various rocks. The town’s name, Dutse, comes from its igneous character (Hausa term for rock). Dutse is notable for its Date Trees (Dabino). The terrain is steep and undulating. Topology gives Jigawa (from Jigayi) its name.
Dutse’s Hausa and Fulani population is unique to the North-West. With agricultural land, most Dutse residents are farmers; other rural vocations are also common.
Malam Inuwa-Dutse, former commissioner of Agriculture and Natural Resources in the old Kano State (now Kano and Jigawa), led the push for Jigawa state.
Military coup ended it in the late 1970s. Since the first call, interest grew. Jigawa residents were not hesitant to support statehood in the late 1980s. In August 1991, during President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida’s military rule, victory was achieved.
Although the state was created, most of the comprising municipal governments were phased out and new ones installed. Albasu, Ajingi, Wudil, Sumaila, Kachako, and Takai are missing. Few state-creators existed in the New World (Jigawa state, Tarin Allah as a common slogan for the state).
