The other visitor was Alhaji Garba Galadima Aliero, the former Chairman of the old Jega Local Government, out of which the present Jega, Maiyama and Aliero Local Governments, Kebbi State, were carved out .
It could also be happily recalled that, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, a former Governor of Sokoto State and an incumbent Senator, representing Sokoto North Senatorial District, was the former Chairman of the defunct Sokoto Local Government that gave birth to the current Sokoto North, Sokoto South Kware and Wamakko Local Governments.
