About Our University
Actualization of the idea of Northwest University Sokoto (NWUS) began in the year 2020, when the proposal for the establishment of the university was submitted to the National University Commission (NUC), in February, 2020. The approval to start the university activities was obtained on the 12th day of May, 2022.
However, the general concept of the Northwest University has started long years ago, about 15 years or more, by the then Northwest Governors, among which is our proprietor; Sarkin Yamman Sokoto, Senator, Dr. Aliyu Magatakada Wamakko.
