Na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion Cer­tifi­cate (NEC) in CAS. I spon­sored my ed­u­ca­tion with the lit­tle earn­ings from this busi­ness. When I was in pri­mary and sec­ondary schools, I only came here on week­ends and hol­i­days. But now I do come to work when­ever I don’t have lec­tures,” he said.

He ex­plained that his late fa­ther was also a Kil­ishi pro­ces­sor. Kil­ishi pro­cess­ing is a fam­ily busi­ness among mem­bers of his fam­ily. He said he had a plan to in­tro­duce new in­no­va­tions into the busi­ness af­ter grad­u­a­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to him “With the level of my ed­u­ca­tion, I am sure I can bring some changes that can im­prove the busi­ness. Kil­ishi has done ev­ery­thing for me in life, so, I will not leave the busi­ness for the rest of my life. I will en­sure that my chil­dren also prac­tice it. I never think of aban­don­ing this busi­ness, no mat­ter what I may be­come in the fu­ture.”

Al­haji Amadun Baita Mai Kil­ishi Agada­sawa, has been into the busi­ness for over 20 years now, adding that the busi­ness pays him more than he had en­vis­aged; “I got a house, mar­ried two wives, and I am spon­sor­ing the ed­u­ca­tion of my chil­dren cour­tesy of Kil­ishi. I am a full time Kil­ishi pro­ces­sor. I have trained all my chil­dren on how go about the busi­ness. Cur­rently, I am sup­ply­ing Kil­ishi to three fa­mous stores and malls in Abuja, Kaduna and Kano states. They al­ways place their or­ders with me, I sup­ply them with the quan­tity they de­mand,” he stated.

He en­cour­aged Agada­sawa youths to seek for knowl­edge be­fore en­gag­ing in the Kil­ishi Busi­ness, say­ing “If you ed­u­cate your­self, you will then em­bark on any busi­ness, but if you are not ed­u­cated, you will reach to a point when you can­not even con­tinue with the busi­ness. Ev­ery­thing nowa­days is go­ing side by side with the level of your ed­u­ca­tion. So, our youths should first ed­u­cate them­selves be­fore go­ing into the busi­ness of Kil­ishi, or any other busi­ness of their choice.”
