Kano, Kano State

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Kano’s rich history as a trade center makes it an undeniable heavyweight in Nigerian commerce. This legacy is reflected in its enduring slogan, “Center of Commerce.” The city is one of the seven legitimate Hausa states – Hausa bakwai identified in the Bayajidda legends which explain the origin of Hausa states.

Kano is the second most populated city in Nigeria (Worldmeter). The city is mostly populated by the Hausa and Fulani people and attracts individuals from various states within and beyond the federation who engage in diverse business activities, with many choosing to settle in the city.

Despite its commercial prominence, Kano has grappled with significant religious conflicts. Notable are the 1980 eruption, and the 1982 violence, which marked the first large-scale religious clash in Kano, originating from the Fagge settlement. Additionally, the 1991 religious riot aimed at curbing the rapid spread of Christianity in northern Nigeria resulted in numerous casualties. Salvation within the walls of Kano city will have ripple effect on the salvation of many others in Northern Nigeria. There are a number of ongoing mission effort in the city, and testimonies abound.

Please Pray

  • Thank the Lord for the many conversions already recorder in the city, and for the effort of the missionaries in this land
  • That the peace of God, that transcends all understanding, will fill the heart of the people in the city.
  • That there will be an outbreak of revival leading to faith communities springing up from the heart of the city.
