Kano State Govt To Support 250 Cooperative Groups

Kano State Government wants to support 250 cooperative groups across the state as part of an empowerment strategy.

The Special Adviser to Gov. Abba Kabiru Yusuf on Cooperatives, Jamilu Kiru disclosed this to newsmen on Sunday.

Kiru said: “Governor Abba Yusuf has a comprehensive socio-economic development plan for our dear Kano state.

“He is determined to stimulate and enhance commerce and industrialisation, energy, security as well as climate change initiatives in the state.

“The administration has equally resolved to deliver quality and accessible healthcare services, functional education, rural development, and water supply.”

He explained that various cooperative societies covering different trades, including agriculture, commerce, handicrafts, artisans, and transportation, would be selected, trained, and empowered across the state.

“Majority of our people live in rural areas and lack basic knowledge and benefits of cooperative. They don’t belong to or form cooperative societies.

“They are also deficient in modern Information Communication Technology (ICT) and how it is driving socio-economic activities,” Abbas Kiru, also National President of the Market and Traders Association of Nigeria (MATAN).

“The State government would help establish and empower such cooperative groups as well as link the members up with finance and banking institutions to enable them to access intervention funds and ease their businesses.” he said.
