Kaura Namoda, Zamfara State

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20

Established in 1807 by Muhammadu Namoda, a military genius and prince of the Alibawa ruling family of Zurmi in the 18th century, Kaura Namoda has a rich historical background and has become a home to different ethnicities. Most of the town’s growth, however, is due to the arrival of the railway from Zaria in 1929. It is served by a station at the terminus of a branch line of the western line of the national railway network, a line proposed to be rehabilitated and extended to Niamey in Niger.

At the heart of Kaura Namoda is the Kaura Namoda Emirate, a testament to its cultural and historical significance. Notable landmarks in the area include the Federal Polytechnic Kaura Namoda. The city serves as a major collection point for peanuts and cotton, contributing to its economic importance. Additionally, millet, sorghum, cowpeas, rice, sugarcane, and tobacco are significant sources of income for the community.

Ethnically, Kaura Namoda is predominantly inhabited by the Hausa and Fulani groups, with the Hausa and Fulfulde languages commonly spoken in the region. The city embraces Islam as the widely practiced religion, although there is a minority Christian population. The city’s unique blend of tradition, commerce, and diverse communities presents a fascinating opportunity for fostering connection and advancing the gospel.

Please pray:

  • Pray for mutual respect and understanding between the majority Muslim and minority Christian population, and that Christian students and business men in Kaura will be true ambassadors of the Kingdom.
  • Pray for open doors of ministry for individuals and ministry to begin deliberate engagement efforts in this city.
  • Lift up the economic activities in Kaura Namoda, praying for sustained growth, fair trade practices, and opportunities for all members of the community.
