Economic Profile: Agriculture and livestock farming which are the main stay of the state’s economy have vast developmental potentials. The State is rich in millet, rice, cassava, date palms, fruits vegetables, sorghum, wheat, sweet potatoes, cowpeas, sugar cane, groundnut, cotton, gum arabic and many others.Diatomite, Potassium/Sodium, Clay, Limestone and Uranium are found in Borno State. Crude oil is also explored in the Chad Basin Area.

Ethnic Profile: Borno State is quite heterogeneous, with a population of 3,178,225. The Kanuri as its dominant ethnic group account for about three quarters of the population of the State. They inhabit quite a number of LGAs, while other smaller ethnic groups: Babur, Bura, Shuwa, Marghi, Fulani, Hausa, Gamergu, or Kanakuru, Chibok, Ngoshe, Guduf, Mandara, Tera and several other smaller groups are found in Biu, Hawul, KwayaKusar, Bayo and Shani LGAs. The Chibok, another minority group, inhabit the newly created Chibok LGA. The Hausas are mainly in Askira and Maiduguri.

Occupation: Majority of the people of Borno State are farmers, herdsmen and fishermen. Agriculture is therefore, the mainstay of the economy. Crops grown in the State include guinea corn, millet, maize, rice, wheat, groundnut, cassava, beans and cowpeas. Others are vegetables, onions, okra and tomatoes.

Local Government Areas (LGAs): Borno State as it stands today comprises twenty-seven (27) Local Government Areas (LGAs). These are: Maiduguri, Askira/Uba, Abadam, Ngala, Bayo, Gubio, Kala/Balge, Biu, Guzamala, Mafa, Chibok, Kaga, Konduga, Damboa, Kukawa, Bama, Gwoza, Magumeri, Jere, Hawul, Marte, Dikwa, KwayaKusar, Mobbar, Shani, Monguno, and Nganzai
