What do you think Kano roads look like back then in 1970? Can you even imagine it? See a photo we featured in this article showing Kano's road in 1970!

Naijauto.com has been around for a while in this internet age but certainly not since 1970!

For the benefits of you readers not from Kano State or haven’t been to Kano before, it is a state in the Northern part of Nigeria that was created on the 27th of May, 1967. It was created out of the old Northern Region as it used to be called.

The state is indeed among the top most recognized northern states in Nigeria as they have produced various reputable political leaders in Nigerian history right from the time of the military rule up till now in the democracy days.

Kano state borders few other Northern states in Nigeria like; Kaduna State (South-west), Bauchi State (South-east), Jigawa State (North-east), and Katsina State (North-West).

According to the last Nigeria general census records, over 9,383,682 people currently lives in Kano State. And these people are all from different tribes in Nigeria as well as different religious affiliations.

Kano State has remained highly relevant in Nigeria’s Agriculture and commerce sectors as the state is well known for producing and supplying groundnuts to many parts of Nigeria till date. This state also has a record of some valuable solid mineral deposits yet to be fully mined and utilized by the Nigerian government.

So, what do you think of the above 1970 photo showing Kano roads?

Does it look anything like the ones you see today?

We just feel like, it is good to share this type of throwback images sometimes in order everyone to easily see and know how our Nation used to be compared to how it is now. What are the things that have changed for good and what are the things that still remain almost the same over the years?
