Kano state government has averred that massive physical investments in Dansoshiya Forest, in the tune of billions of Naira, would be the springboard from which agro-pastoral development programmes in the state would be launched.
The state Deputy Governor, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawauna, stated this while chairing a meeting of the Steering Committee of the Kano State Agro Pastoral Development Project, in his office.
“The provision of infrastructure such as school, market, clinic as well grazing land will help us to transform Dansoshiya into a model grazing reserve in this country”.
“We have already informed the Islamic Development Bank and the Lives and Livelihoods Fund, LLF about what we have started separately in the forest like the housing units for the pastoralists, the dam and some other things. They have agreed to come and see what we have started which will encourage them to fast track related projects under the KSADP”.
He recalled that Borno state had earlier this year sent a delegation to Kano to imitate its agro-pastoral development model, stressing that both Islamic Development Bank and the Lives and Livelihoods Fund, LLF, envision the KSADP as a model for future development projects in Africa.
Dr. Gawuna, who is also the state Commissioner for Agriculture, however, stressed the need for synergy between the KSADP and the state government Ruga Committee to ensure the viability of projects at Dansoshiya.
The Deputy Governor was happy that the Kano Agro Pastoral Development Project has started to gather steam due to the political will of the state governor and the support from the state legislature, who will provide guidance and oversight roles in respect of the overall project implementation.
In a statement by Ameen K,Yassar ,Project Communications Specialist said the KSADP steering committee meeting, which focused on the project’s budget for 2021, observed that with timely release of operational funds, things would work out well.
Women Business Challenge: Most Debtors Are Not Picking Calls- Bakori
Zainab Aminu Bakori graduated from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria and runs an online snacks restaurant ,in a brief chat with Nigerian Tracker Correspondent,Zainab speaks on the challenges young women entrepreneurs are confronted with .
According to her alot of customers will be wanting to purchase something from you but always on credit,you will finish discussing with your customers;telling you what and what he needs and at the end of the story he will tell you its going to be on credit.
Zainab said sometimes they will not pay not even after a month but 2 or 3 month later and if youu are not having enough capital that will surely bring down your business.
According to the young emerging entrepreneur apart from aspects of people requesting goods on credit, some will seek for goods on credit,you accept and give out hoping that the person will pay at the time he mentioned but unfortunately that person won’t.
It will go to the extent where you will be calling that person but wont pick your calls nor give you proper explanation.this is a very big challenge and if you are not lucky that is the end of your Business
Zainab continued, she added that Business that is growing needs the owner to be investing money all the time before reaching the target.So,as a female entrepreneur we need support nd encouragement from family to lift our business to greater heights.
–And also there some people that doesn’t know how to talk to people in a good manner,some customers are of the believe that they are helping you as an Entrepreneur whenever they buy something from you which is never like that, I believe its a 50_50 Business customer relations , we are both helping each other because i guess u will never buy something you don’t need just like that, so the seller helps youu in getting what u want too.
So alot of people will tell u whatever comes from their mind without thinking if it will hurt you or not.
I think this are the challenges Some of us who are young Business entrepreneurs are facing .
