Speech recognition is a key element of diverse applications in communication systems, medical transcription systems, security systems etc. However, there has been very little research in the domain of speech processing for African languages, thus, the need to extend the frontier of research in order to port in, the diverse applications based on speech recognition. Hausa language is an important indigenous lingua franca in west and central Africa, spoken as a first or second language by about
