A survey was conducted to analyze sweet potato consumption in Sokoto metropolis. Semi-structured questionnaires were randomly administered to 120 respondents. Questions were asked on level of education, marital status, tribe, occupation and in-house consumption. The findings showed that nearly most of the respondents were Hausa by tribe, married and civil servants with tertiary education. Non of the respondents have sweet potato as a staple food, rice was found to be the major staple food followed by corn, very few are aware of its nutritive value and It is consumed occasionally by almost all house hold members although children and women ate considerably more and mainly as a snack. These findings showed that there are potentials for consumption study of sweet potato in Sokoto state as a whole but the finding that some people have never thought of sweet potato as a food despite its vital nutritive values indicate the need for the crop to be further explored considering the population increase. There is also the need for massive public awareness campaign on this crop. The study was however not able to cover Sokoto state because of limited resources.
