According to the Kano State Government, as part of an empowerment strategy, 250 cooperative organizations would be activated and supported throughout the state.

This information was provided to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Sunday by Alhaji Jamilu Abbas-Kiru, the recently appointed Special Adviser on Cooperative Groups to Governor Kabiru Yusuf.

“Gov. Abba Yusuf has a thorough socioeconomic development plan for our beloved Kano State,” he remarked.

He is committed to boosting efforts in the state related to energy, security, climate change, and business and industrialization.

The administration is equally committed to providing functional education, rural development, high-quality healthcare services, and a reliable water supply.

The assistant detailed how several cooperative societies from diverse vocations, such as agriculture, business, handicrafts, artisans, and transportation, would be chosen, enabled, and taught across the state.

He claims that the empowerment method is compatible with the way that the world’s economic activities are currently becoming digitalized.

“The majority of our population lives in rural regions and is uninformed about the advantages of cooperativism. Rarely do they join or create cooperative societies.

Furthermore, according to Abbas-Kiru, who is also the National President of the Market and Traders Association of Nigeria (MATAN), “they are lacking in modern Information Communication Technology (ICT) and how it is influencing socio-economic activities.”

As a result, he revealed that the government would assist in the formation and empowerment of such cooperative groups as well as the connection of the members with banking and financial institutions to allow them to access intervention money and ease their enterprises.
