Jigawa team learn how to operate a State Bureau of Statistics (SBS) from Kaduna
The Deputy Speaker of the Jigawa State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Garba Maikudi, has given assurance on the passage of the bill that would establish the Jigawa State Bureau of Statistics. He gave this assurance during a peer-to-peer learning session between Jigawa State delegates and the Kaduna State Bureau of Statistics in Kaduna State.
The journey to the establishment of a State Bureau of Statistics in Jigawa State started around 2012 when the state, following the Federal example of the National Statistical Master Plan (NSMP), developed the Jigawa State Statistical Master Plan (SSMP). One of the action points of the Jigawa SSMP is to establish a State Bureau of Statistics (SBS). The process was supported by SPARC (DFID's predecessor programme to ARC).  

In 2016, the Jigawa State Government sent a draft bill to the State House of Assembly (SHoA) to actualize its intention of establishing the bureau. Meanwhile, PERL-ARC, through its intervention and assessment on, “Facilitating effective linkage between central MIS (planning, budgeting and HR) and sector MISs for improved service delivery” noted the need to support the passage of the draft bill before the SHoA.
