Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Shehu Umar, Gusau

Zam­fara State govern­ment has con­cluded plans to se­cure a loan of N1­bil­lion for traders in the state, Gover­nor Ab­dulaziz Yari has said.

Speak­ing at a Trade Fair in Gusau, Yari said the state govern­ment en­tered into an agree­ment with the Bank of In­dus­try for the loan.

“I would like to draw the at­ten­tion of our par­tic­i­pants and all prospec­tive in­vestors in this trade fair to our vast in­vest­ment po­ten­tials. When we take into ac­count the huge con­cen­tra­tion of solid min­er­als in var­i­ous parts, the state is a haven for all those who wish to in­vest,” he said.

The gover­nor added: “Let me com­mend the ef­forts and com­mit­ments of the Zam­fara Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­tries Mines and Agri­cul­ture for tak­ing the bur­den of or­ga­niz­ing this an­nual event, which is no doubt an en­gine of eco­nomic growth and de­vel­op­ment.”
