Adamu Aliero




Muhammad Adamu Aliero born January 1, 1957, is a prominent Nigerian politician currently serving as the senator representing Kebbi Central senatorial district, a position he has held since 2015. He previously represented this district from 2007 to 2008. Aliero has an extensive political career, including serving as the governor of Kebbi State from 1999 to 2007. He is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Born in Aliero, a town in Aliero Local Government Area of Kebbi State (then part of the Northern Region), Adamu Aliero began his education at an Islamic school before attending Aliero Town Planning School for his elementary education in 1965. He continued his secondary education at Government Secondary School in Koko, graduating in 1976. Aliero then attended the School of Basic Studies at Ahmadu Bello University, where he enrolled in the Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) certificate program. He pursued undergraduate studies in political science at the same university, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1980.

In 1981, Aliero started his professional career as an administrative officer at the College of Education in Sokoto. The same year, he joined the Nigeria Immigration Service. He later resigned from the Customs and Excise Service in 1997 to enter the private sector, focusing on export and import trade.

Aliero's political journey began in 1998 when he ran for a Senate seat representing the Kebbi Central constituency on the platform of the now-defunct United Nigeria Congress Party (UNCP). Although the election results were annulled, he continued his political endeavors. Following the death of General Sani Abacha and the subsequent transition, Aliero contested and won the Kebbi State gubernatorial election in 1999 under the All People's Party (APP), which later became the All Nigeria People's Party (ANPP). He was re-elected in 2003 and was one of only four incumbent ANPP governors to secure a second term.

In February 2007, Aliero switched allegiance to the PDP and won a Senate seat in the April 2007 general elections. Over the years, Aliero has switched political parties several times. In early 2012, he moved from the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) back to the PDP, and in 2014, he joined the All Progressives Congress (APC). He was later re-elected as senator under the APC banner.

Aliero was appointed Minister of the Federal Capital Territory by President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua in December 2008, a role he held until March 2010 when Acting President Goodluck Jonathan dissolved his cabinet. In the 10th Senate, he was named chairman of the Senate Committee on Land Transport on August 8, 2023.

Aliero is married to three wives: Maimuna, Zainab, and Aaliyah. He has eleven children: Fatima, Sadiq, Mustapha, Abdulazziz, Aliyu, Umar, Ayman, Adamu, Khalil, Abubakar, and Ahmed. He currently resides in Abuja.
