On behalf of the Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the Kano State Government and the good people of Kano State, I do hereby extend an open passage to all potential foreign and domestic investors for the opportunity to invest in Kano. These are indeed very strange times, with the impact of COVID – 19 felt across the globe, swift proactive measures are necessary to keep our economies moving and flourishing, it should then come as no surprise that the People and Government of Kano State have put in place numerous incentives, policies, and an enabling business environment to welcome initiatives and investments that would expand the economic growth of the great ancient city of Kano.

I am sure I do not have to remind you that Kano State has always been and will continue to be the commercial and investment hub of Northern Nigeria, the most populous state in Nigeria with over 63% of the population between the age of 16 to 60, and the second largest non-oil and gas economy in the country. Recently, the World Bank projected Kano State to emerge a Megacity by 2025 in view of the cosmopolitan nature of Kano City and the unprecedented investment in infrastructural development by this administration. The resolve of His Excellency the Executive Governor of Kano State Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR (Khadimul Islam) in ensuring Kano State serves as the Prime destination for both local and foreign investors in Nigeria cannot be over emphasized and we have remain resolute in realizing our mandate of attracting and facilitating investments in Kano State with various initiated policies and strategies to expand the inflow of investment as well as creating an atmosphere for investments to thrive with ease. We have also created legal framework for Public Private Partnership (PPP) policy for the mutual benefit of investors and the state, and currently in the process of enacting a law to guide diaspora partnership through investment. We have introduced aftercare services to investors, which entails routine and spot checks on business operations, to prevent hitches due to activities from government or its agencies or even from other parties that government intervention maybe of remedy. Kano State has indeed proven to be the CENTER OF COMMERCE and with the vast infrastructural development in the state and an enabling environment for business, investors should be rest assured of business protection and profitability. Thus, for all who are thinking of investment, should absolutely think of Kano.

Kano State is the largest state with the highest population in the country estimated to have over 20 million people. These make the state be a perfect destination for Foreign Direct Investment in West Africa and Africa at large.
