22

The Sokoto Caliphate Governance Model, Building Blocks For Nation Building - Youth Minister The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare Tuesday restated the immense contribution of the Sokoto Caliphate to the Socio-Economic development of Nigeria, asserting it formed the foundation of Islamic renaissance of the Northern region. In his remarks, yesterday as the Special Guest of Honour at the public presentation of the book; "The Sokoto Caliphate" by Murray Last, Dare highlighted the significance of the Caliphate, which he stated extended beyond the shores of Nigeria, making up the boundaries of the present-day Cameroun, Burkina Faso and Niger. "Having had my roots in the North, born and bred there, I have been particularly fascinated by the history of Sokoto, its Sultanate and the evolution of the Caliphate, which formed the foundation of islamization of Northern Nigeria". "This book is an eye-opener into the evolution of the Sokoto Caliphate, the ascendancy of the Sultan into a pre-eminent position amongst traditional rulers and Islamic leaders in the country, and the contribution of the Sultanate to the socio-economic development of Northern Nigeria, and by extension, parts of West-Africa", the Minister added. Whilst recommending "The Sokoto Caliphate" for students of History and those passionate about learning the political evolution in the North, the Minister expressed optimism that the literary piece will occupy a pride of place in libraries across the country, particularly those of tertiary institutions. Dare commended the author for his foresight in bringing to light the history of the Caliphate which dates back to the sixteenth century, adding that lessons learnt from the chronicle of events that shaped the Caliphate - the political, educational and conflict resolution model, can be building blocks for development of the Nation. Dignitaries that graced the book launch include Emir of Zazzau, Alh. Nuhu Bamalli, Chairman, House of Reps Committee on Power, Aliyu Magaji, former Minister of FCT, Aliyu Moddibo, Alh. Nasiru Danu amongst others.
