Jigawa State Polytechnic
 
When Jigawa was created in 1991, the new state inherited only one higher Institution of learning from the former Kano State, which was the present College of education Gumel. Considering the status of higher Education as at that time and the yearning demand for it, the Jigawa State Polytechnic was established by the then Military Administration in December 1991, so as to augment the effort of the State College of Education in the training of manpower for the state and the country in the drive towards Technology, Agricultural, Commercial, Social and Scientific advancement.

The Polytechnic was named Jigawa State Polytechnic by an Edict No. 1 of December, 1991 as a multi-campus with a spread across the state. The College of Business and Management Studies been sited at the State capital at the former Vocational Training Centre along Kiyawa road in Dutse.
The Objective of the College is to provide courses of instruction, training and research in Management, Administration and Commerce. The College started in Academic activities with some few Diploma and Certificate programme but presently. A total of 22 programmes ranging from Higher National Diploma to Certificate programmes.

After the taking over the of the then Hussaini Adamu Polytechnic Kazaure Campus by the Federal Government and its subsequent conversion to Hussaini Adamu Federal polytechnic in April 2007, the Polytechnic was then left with College of Business and Management Studies, a situation that falls short with the NBTE Criteria for accreditation. That the Institution must have 70% of its courses in Science and Technology while the remaining 30% be in any Management Sciences.
Within some few months of its coming into office, the Lamido led administration signed into law for the establishment of Jigawa State Polytechnic and approved the construction and equiping of the new College of Science and Technology to augments CBMS up 70% component of a Polytechnic.
