Director's Foreward


Federal Government College Sokoto, is one of the ‘Oldest’ of the “Unity” Colleges established by the Federal Government of Nigeria for the promotion of national unity and national integration. It was established in February 1966 as a co-educational institution.
In that year, it started with class one and lower sixth forms. In 1971, 70 students sat for West Africa School Certificate and 53 for the Higher School Certificate. And in 1981, 89 students were presented for West Africa School Certificate and only 7 for Higher School Certificate, the school became purely a Secondary School as the Higher school section was phased out and transferred to Federal School of Arts and Science now Federal Science College, Sokoto.

Students and staff are drawn from all states of the Federation. Few students are non-Nigerians. The school continues to be under the proprietorship of the Federal Ministry of Education and directive are therefore taken from her from time to time in the running of the school.

In the c-i-ty of Sokoto
Along the road down to Gu-sau
Is a school where boys and girls
In this place all tribes are found,
To learn and promote unity,
On side of Gusau Ro-a-d.
Pro unitate.
On the side of Gusau Ro-a-d,
Where young boys and girls seek for knowledge
She is great in Science and Art
My Alma mater.
Hail, her rejoice for her excellence,
To learn and promote unity,
On the side of Gusau Road
My alma mater.
