Katsina State was carved out of Kaduna State on September 23, 1987 by the then regime of General Ibrahim Babangida. It’s capital is Katsina.
It is made up of two emirates which feature prominently in the establishment of the seven Hausa Kingdoms.
The lineage between Bayajida and Daurama produced the founders of Daura, Katsina, Zaria, Kano, Rano Gobir and Biram. The legendary Kusugu well where the snake called Sarki was slain is one of the tourist attractions of Daura.
