Katsina to re­vive mori­bund in­dus­tries

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Habibu Umar Aminu, Katsina

Katsina state gov­ern­ment is to re­vive all the mori­bund in­dus­tries in the state to boost rev­enue and pro­vide em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties to its teem­ing youths, Gov­er­nor Masari has said.

the gov­er­nor listed the in­dus­tries to in­clude; the Kankara Kaolin Fac­tory, Daura Leather works, Mani Flour mills, Fun­tua Burnt Bricks, Danja Sugar fac­tory and other var­i­ous fer­tiliser-blend­ing plants.

Speak­ing at the com­mis­sion­ing of PVC pipes and Tubes pro­duc­tion line at Kankiya metal works, Masari said Pub­lic Pri­vate Part­ner­ship PPP op­tion shall be de­ployed to see they be­come up and run­ning.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the over-de­pen­dence on the gov­ern­ment is largely re­spon­si­ble for the un­em­ploy­ment rate in the coun­try say­ing gov­ern­ment at all lev­els can­not pro­vide jobs for all.

He added that es­tab­lish­ing small and medium scale en­ter­prises by in­di­vid­u­als can help fast track de­vel­op­ment not­ing that in­vest­ing a lit­tle of 50, 000 can help the econ­omy grow.
