The Triumph is a 38-year-old Nigerian English language newspaper published by the Triumph Publishing Company Limited based in the ancient city of Kano, Kano State.It presently publishes a weekly edition with arrangements to return to publishing of the Daily, Weekend and Sunday editions as well as the publishing of its sister vernacular newspapers of AlBishir.[1] & AlFijir.[2][1]

The Triumph Newspaper was established in June 1980.[3] The company is solely owned by the Ministry of Information, Youths and Culture of the Kano State government.[2] In October 2012 the state government closed down the Company for alleged unviability.[5] The closure was later found to have political undertones.[3]

The present government re-opened it[6] and included in the 2018 budget and a pledge to acquire a modern digital printing machine[7] for the company. It is now back with a very big bang with more success perceived in the horizon.
