The north of Togo is home to the Fulbe, Moba and Tamberma, and to the west of Konkomba and Bassari. In the north, Hausa is the common language of communication; The Fulbe and Tamberma are also important beyond their residential area. In the cities in the south, where business and public administration are concentrated, almost all ethnic groups are represented.
