About Abdu Gusau Polytechnic

The present day Abdu Gusau Polytechnic, TalataMafara has a long standing history.

Its origin dates back to the emergence of The Staff Training Centre, Sokoto in 1956, which was eventually renamed Staff Development Centre, Sokoto in 1972.

It is the staff development centre that was later amalgamated with community development institute, BirninKebbi and Home economics Centre, Gusau;

to constitute an arm called College of Administration Sokoto which formed part of the then polytechnic of Sokoto State, BirninKebbi in 1980.

The geographical division in the country in 1991 saw the creation of Kebbi State from the former Sokoto State.

The former Sokoto State leadership of Col. Bashir Salihi Magashi thought it is desirable then to establish its own polytechnic at Talata Mafara, to take advantage of the existing structure meant for a technical college already there.

Still the college of administration Farfaru remained an integral part of the proposed polytechnic and served as the temporary site.
