As part of its empowerment agenda, the Kano State Government has pledged to activate and support 250 cooperative organizations across the state.

This was announced by Governor Kabiru Yusuf’s new Special Adviser on Cooperative Groups, Alhaji Jamilu Abbas-Kiru, to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Kano.

His plan for Kano State’s economic and social growth is “comprehensive,” he remarked of Governor Abba Yusuf.

“He is dedicated to bolstering the state’s commercial and industrial development, energy, security, and climate change efforts.

Healthcare, education, rural revitalization, and water infrastructure are all priorities for the new administration.

The assistant indicated that throughout the state, cooperative societies specializing in agriculture, commerce, handicrafts, artisans, and transportation would be selected, trained, and empowered.

The digitalization of global economic activity, he argues, is in sync with the empowerment plan.

Most of us live in the country, and we don’t have a good understanding of the advantages of cooperativism. They rarely build communities or join existing ones.

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

So, he let it slip that the government would back efforts to form and strengthen such cooperative groups, as well as connect its members to financial and banking institutions, so that they could more easily have access to intervention money and streamline their operations.
