Date change source]

Traces of life dating back to the prehistoric period were found in the northern part of Niger, which later turned into the Sahara Desert. Before the arrival of the Europeans in the region, empires and states such as Songay, Mali, Gao, Bornu dominated the Niger lands. In the 19th century, British and German explorers from Europe sought the source of the Niger River. The country was included in the French West Africa colonial system in 1921 and became a colony of France. In this region, lines were created by colonial countries without considering borders, historical and cultural sensitivities. Having gained autonomy in 1958, the country declared its independence from France in 1960.

According to historical records, Islam reached today's Niger lands through the Berbers towards the end of the 10th century. However, the fact that the name of the 6th king of the Gao Kingdom, which ruled some of the Niger lands since ancient times, was Za Ali Fay, reveals the possibility that the people of this region may have met Islam much earlier. The strong possibility is that the people of Niger recognized Islam in the 7th century, right after the conquests of Ukbe bin Nafi in North Africa. When Islam began to spread there, the western parts of Niger were under the rule of the Gao Kingdom. Za Kosoy, the 15th king of this state, took the title of Muslimdam as a Muslim in 1009. The Gao Kingdom was subordinated to the Almoravids in the second half of the 11th century. In 1464, a king named Sunni Ali became the head of this state, which was later called the Songhay Empire. After that, the kings who ruled the state were always Muslims. This state became a sultanate of Morocco after 1593. Keita Kingdom ruled over a part of Niger between 1200 and 1670. Keita was previously a principality based in Niamey, which is today the capital of Niger. Baramendana, Keita's pre-kingdom ruler, converted to Islam in 1050. After becoming a kingdom in 1200, those who ruled the state were always Muslims. The Keita Kingdom has been subordinated to Morocco since the end of the 16th century. The Bornu Kingdom ruled the eastern part of Niger for a long time. (See Nigerian history on the Kingdom of Bornu.) The northern parts also fell into the hands of the Kingdom of Mali from the beginning of the 14th century. The territory of Niger was occupied by French colonists in the late 19th century and remained under French occupation until 3 August 1960. The first president after independence was Hamani Diori, leader of the Progressive Niger Party. Hamani Diori was on good terms with the French invaders and was supported by the French. He was brought to work entirely by the game of the French. Therefore, by recognizing Niger's independence, the French colonialists did not lose any of the benefits they had gained from this country. Diori's rule ended with the military coup on April 15, 1974, and Seyni Kunçe took his place. Upon his death, on November 14, 1987, Colonel Ali Saibu became president. Ali Saibu remained in this position until the transition to the multi-party regime in 1993. In the multi-party elections held on March 27, 1993, Mahamane Osmane, the candidate of the opposition Alliance of Forces for Change, was elected president.

Since the Ottoman State saw the Kavar Sultanate in the east of Niger as the hinterland of the Tripoli Province, these lands were also established in the 16th century. It had been subordinate to it for centuries. However, in the Ottoman records this region XIX. There is no information that military units were sent until the 19th century.

In 1835, with the re-connection of Tripoli to the central administration, the Ottoman Empire became a de facto neighbor to this region again and found France, which wanted to expand from Algeria, which it had captured in 1830, to the South and around Lake Chad to the North. During this period, Muslim sultanates, who wanted not to be invaded, started to contact the Tripoli governors of the Ottoman Empire or the Fezzan district governors and to submit their vassals. One of them was Kavar Judge I. Muhhammed, who came to Murzuk district in 1850 and declared his conquest. The fact that Kavar, the center of which was the city of Bilma, was taken under the Ottoman administration was approved with the will of the internal government dated February 22, 1852 and numbered 1268. In this way, Bilma Saltpan, which played an important role in Saharan trade, was annexed to the Ottoman Empire.

On the other hand, the economic data regarding the Kavar district are first encountered in the Tripoli state yearbook of 1884. After the French occupied the region by sending soldiers in 1906, the district of Kavar came to the agenda of Istanbul again. The Ottoman Empire's evacuation of this province as a result of the defeat in the Tripoli War of 1911-12 caused the French occupation in Kavar to settle.


Politics change source]

After the adoption of the constitution submitted to the referendum on 26 December 1992 in Niger and its entry into force as of the beginning of 1993, a multi-party democratic system was adopted. As in other francophone (French-led) countries, great importance is attached to the secular identity of the regime in Niger. The top executive of the country is the head of state, and the head of the government is the prime minister. Legislative power is vested in the 83-member parliament. Members of Parliament are determined by free general elections. Niger is a member of international organizations such as UN, OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference), Organization of African Unity, Economic Community of West African Countries, Africa, Antilles and Pacific Convention, International Monetary Fund (IMF), Islamic Development Bank. It has the second lowest human development index after the Republic of Congo state.
