The emirate's wooded savanna area of about 2,980 square kilometres (1,150 sq mi) originally included four small Koro chiefdoms that paid tribute to the Hausa kingdom of Zazzau. Discoveries of ancient sculptures of the Nok culture, both at Suleja town and in the Makabolo River bed, have helped prove the influence of Nok on the Yoruba art of Ife.
Today Suleja is well known as an exporter of Gbari pottery. Cotton weaving and dyeing, with locally grown indigo , and mat making are traditional activities, but farming remains the chief occupation. Local trade is primarily in agricultural products.
In addition to the Pottery Centre, a government secondary school and a hospital are located in the town. The Dorben Polytechnic has a campus in Suleja.
