KANO STATE, THE PAST,THE PRESENT AND DE- INDUSTRIALIZATION

Kano State can be likened to the Pearl of the North, a city that is been associated with so many strides ,with proud history ranging from ancient trading routes, groundnut pyramids, top notch Islamic scholars and industry.  Kano State is the Northern Nigeria answer to Lagos in the South West and Onitsha in the South East,then Port Harcourt to the Delta creeks. But as it stands today ,Kano seems to be a relic or more of museum with tons of de- industrialisation! Today, the state ranks low in human capacity index ,tilting towards theocratic setups with Sharia reigning supreme and federal government dependency!  This is Kano today !

According to an eye witness, Joel Nwakama, he said that;

“All you see in Kano are carcasses of famous companies. Is Nigeria growing by deindustrialisation” he questioned.

Today, dead companies litter the length of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Road, Kano. A sign that ours is a land that kills enterprise and nurtures idiocy, he added.

According to Wikipedia, Kano State is a state located in Northern Nigeria.Created on May 27, 1967 from part of the Northern Region, Kano state borders Katsina State to the north-west, Jigawa Stateto the north-east, Bauchi State to the south-east and Kaduna State to the south-west. The capital of Kano State is Kano.
