KANO AGRO PROJECT EXCELS AMONG IsDB/LLF FUNDED PROJECTS IN AFRICA, GETS KUDOS FROM STATE GOVERNMENT

The Deputy Governor of Kano State and chairman of the project’s steering committee, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna announced this in his opening remarks during the third KSADP Steering Committee meeting in Kano.

Dr. Gawuna enthused that this attainment, championed by a vibrant Project Management Unit, “has gingered the bank to support Kano with various interventions such as the Special Agricultural Processing Zone, SAPZ, National Program for Food Security and the Bilingual Project”.

These projects, alongside the KSADP, will create a huge socio-economic impact in the state through addressing food and nutrition security, creating more jobs, mitigating poverty, driving industrialization and improving governance outcomes.

“The KSADP is tagged as the fastest by IsDB and wouldn’t have achieved success without the support of the Steering Committee and the Executing Agency”.

The Deputy Governor, therefore, asserted that the state government is happy with the project team for ensuring smooth implementation of activities, noting that the team has successfully completed some major impactful interventions, including major repairs of the Watari dam and irrigation infrastructure.

He maintained that the project has so far completed designs of some major projects, assuring that the year 2022 would usher in implementation of several transformational civil works.

“The project has been able to make headway because of non-interference from the state government. The Steering Committee will continue to support the KSADP team to fast track processes, to pave way for effective reach out to project beneficiaries ”, he added.
