Four Million Jobless in Kano, Says BUK Don

The Dean, Dangote Business School, Bayero University, Kano, Prof Murtala Sagagi,  has   said  over  four  million Kano State indigenes are unemployed, Punch reports.

Sagagi  said this while delivering a paper at an event  organised by the Kano Concerned Citizens Initiative  in Kano on Saturday.

He  blamed a  lack of developmental agenda  by successive administrations  in the state.

He called  on   politicians,  business owners  and  other  stakeholders to work towards  a comprehensive strategy for the economic development and prosperity of the state.

The  don lamented that over 500 industries  had been   shut down in Kano due to effective implementation of government policies.

Despite the efforts of the state government to revamp   Agriculture, Sagagi, stressed that more needs to be done to revitalize the sector through the comprehensive transformation of farming.

Alhaji Aliko Dangote urged  the Federal Government to review its policies on agriculture and industry  to provide an enabling environment for job creation.

He also told  the FG to intensify  efforts on power generation in the country, regretting that many  industries collapsed in the state  due to erratic power supply.
