Turn­ing to the Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety, he said it was es­tab­lished dur­ing Ibrahim Ba­bangida’s regime with a view to im­prov­ing the busi­ness of Kil­ishi, say­ing “so far we have gone dig­i­tal in this busi­ness. Nowa­days, cus­tomers can put their or­der through phone, send the money through e-bank­ing and then col­lect the prod­uct at mo­tor parks or air­ports.”

He ex­plained that ev­ery day they slaugh­ter three to five cows at Kudud­dufi to process Kil­ishi when the mar­ket is boom­ing ,and when there are not many cus­tomers avail­able, they only slaugh­ter one or two cows in a day.

We are also stock­ing it in trans­par­ent boxes that are be­ing kept along ma­jor roads, junc­tions and other strate­gic places in Kano and neigh­bour­ing states, for on­ward sale to buy­ers.”

Rabi’u Salisu Muham­mad is an ap­pren­tice at Kudud­dufin Kil­ishi. A stu­dent of Kano State Col­lege of Arts and Sci­ence and Re­me­dial Stud­ies (CAS), Muham­mad, said he has been into the busi­ness for 10 years, and he is about to com­plete his in­tern­ship.
