Gombe is one of the 36 states of Nigeria. It is located in the north eastern part of the country.

The state was created out of Bauchi state on 1st October 1996 by Sani Abacha’s administration.

Its creation was a fulfilment of the aspiration of the people who for long, had passionately craved for a state of their own out of the then Bauchi state.

Gombe State has eleven Local Government Areas (LGA) namely, Akko, Balanga, Billiri, Dukku, Funakaye, Gombe, Kaltungo, Kwami, Nafada, Shongom, and Yamaltu Deba.

The following are administrative maps of Gombe State showing the local government areas


Historically, Gombe state is a fusion of two distinct groups of people, comprising the people of Gombe North and the ethnic grouping of Gombe South.

Gombe is located on latitude 9”30’ and 12”30’N, Longitude 8”5’and 11”45’E.

It has borders with Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Taraba, and Bauchi states.

The State climate is generally warm, with temperatures not exceeding 300c during the months of March-May considered to be the hottest months. The following table gives other profile of the jewel state.

The following Map indicates in red the position of Gombe in relation to the thirty six (36) states of the federation.

Map of Nigeria Showing Gombe

The Emirate government, which had its Head quarters in Gombe Abba, was formed to effectively control what constitutes a larger part of the Gombe State, until the advent of the British in the early 20th century.

Under the British, the state was administered through the mechanism of two administrative units, i.e. Gombe Native Authority and Tangale Waja Native Authorities. The two Authorities constituted Gombe Division during the Colonial era. However, with independence in 1960 and the subsequent military administration, many changes occurred which led to the emergence of local government authorities. Thus, between 1976 and the present, the then two authorities had metamorphosed into the present 11 local governments.
