SIR AHMADU BELLO LEGACY

SIR AHMADU BELLO SARDAUNA OF SOKOTO

SIR AHMADU BELLO SARDAUNA OF SOKOTO

Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardaunan Sokoto, first Premier of the Northern Region is the most revered leader of the people of Northern Nigeria. His tenure as premier of the Northern Region which ended tragically in 1966 has remained a recurring reference point in the political history of the Region and indeed Nigeria. The nobility of his lineage as the son and grandson of two Sultans of Sokoto and a great grandson of the renowned Islamic scholar and reformer, Sheikh Uthman Dan Fodio, combined with his destined emergence as the first and most successful political leader of the estimated 18.5 million people of the former Northern Region, conferred on him an incomparable stature in the league of Nigeria’s political leaders.

 

THE FOUNDATION

The Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation was founded by the Governors of the 19 northern states of Nigeria in cooperation with the associates, friends, admirers and well-wishers of the late Sir Ahmadu Bello, KBE, the Sardauna of Sokoto and Premier of the former northern region. The Foundation was established to foster the legacy of leadership and good governance bequeathed by Sir Ahmadu Bello for the human and economic development of northern Nigeria.

The Foundation is a hybrid grant making, grant receiving, not-for-profit and non-governmental organization, registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission. Its office is located in Kaduna, former capital of the northern region and currently capital of Kaduna State, in the north central geopolitical zone of Nigeria.

The Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation is conceived to be an intervention agency that will conceptualise and execute programmes directly, partnering with other non-profit organisations or collaborating with special interests that share the same or similar objectives with it in realizing their set goals and objectives which should be within the general framework for economic and human development.
