‘Emir of Zazzau Aliyu Dansidi laid foundations for North’s 100 years-old agric college’


Emir of Zazzau Malam Aliyu Abdulqadir, popularly known as Malam Aliyu Dansidi, laid the foundations for the construction of the first School of Agriculture in Northern Nigeria 100 years ago, his grandson who is the current Emir of Zazzau, Ambassador Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, has disclosed.

Solacebase reports that the school, now called Samaru College of Agriculture, which is a part of Ahmadu Bello University, started as a hands-on agricultural training centre at Maigana town near Zaria after its establishment by the then Colonial Administration in 1921.

A statement issued by the Public Affairs Directorate, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, on Tuesday said the agricultural training centre finally became Samaru College of Agriculture in 1932, making it the first College of Agriculture in Northern Nigeria and the second in Nigeria only after the College of Agriculture, Moore Plantation, Ibadan.

According to the statement, speaking at the College’s centenary lecture organised by the Division of Agricultural Colleges, Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, on Tuesday, the Emir of Zazzau, Ambassador Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, explained that his grandfather Emir Aliyu Dansidi indeed played a significant role in the establishment of the College.

‘’The Emir, who congratulated the College and the University on the success recorded by the North’s oldest agriculture institute, stressed that the role of traditional institution in the acceleration of agricultural development in Nigeria could not be over-emphasized, ‘’the statement said.

‘’Ambassador Bamalli, who cut the anniversary cake to round off the centenary celebration, also expressed happiness over the quality of presentation of the centenary lecture delivered by Prof. Salihu Adamu Dadari, a one time Provost of the 100-years old College and Director, Division of Agricultural Colleges, Ahmadu Bello University.

The statement said in his goodwill message, the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, noted that the College had no doubt come a long way and produced hundreds of middle-level manpower in agriculture predominantly in agricultural extension services.

The Minister, represented by Mrs. Ruqayya Iliyasu, a Director in charge of University Education at the Federal Ministry of Education, also said the coming of the College this far clearly showed that the dream of its founding fathers had been kept alive.

Adamu, who urged management staff of the College and the University as a whole to reposition the agriculture training school for the challenges ahead, said the Federal Ministry of Education would continue to identify itself with the success of the College.

In his remarks, the Chairman of the Occasion, Prof. S.U. Abdullahi described the College’s 100 years of existence as a great success worth celebrating.
