This study explores the impact of access to Social asset towards achieving Sustainable Poverty reduction in Sokoto State-Nigeria. Quantitative approach was adopted and the data samples were collected from three (3) local government in each of the three (3) senatorial districts using purposive sampling technique. The data analysis was carried out using Statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) and Partial least squares for both preliminary and main data analyses. The results of the study confirm the existence of significant positive relationship between access to Social asset and Sustainable poverty reduction, thus households in the empirical area can assuage their poverty status by harnessing the benefits of Social asset. Suggestions were made as far mechanism need to be in place for accessing Social asset in the study area, which if employed would enhance social resources of the people in the area and in turn affect positively their livelihoods. Similarly, further researches are suggested to bridge the shortcoming of quantitative approach so as to have robust findings as well as the need to explore impact of other livelihood assets and contexts.
