During the event held at Millennium City Kaduna, Governor Sani commended the Embassy of Qatar in Nigeria and the Qatari-owned Sanabil Project for aligning with Kaduna State’s business-friendly environment.

Sani said, “The Economic City will provide world-class infrastructure and make Kaduna a reference point in modern and affordable accommodation with adequate security and a conducive atmosphere for business activities.”

Sani further explained, “The Economic City will facilitate international trade while serving as a platform for local entrepreneurs and traders. It will also harness product value chain opportunities and improve economic growth.”

Describing the project’s provisions, Sani stated, “The project will make provisions for houses, clinics, shops, poultry farms, farmlands for rainy season and irrigation farming.”

Governor Sani emphasized, “Our vision is to make Kaduna the Leading Economic Hub in the North. We want to create a business cluster that will drive competition in the Northern Region.”

Sani also noted, “The Kaduna State Government will continue to provide the Qatar Charity and other interested genuine investors, the support they need to complete all projects.”

The Qatar Sanabil Project, a multi-million dollar endeavour, is poised to positively impact the lives of over 500,000 poor, underserved, and vulnerable citizens in Kaduna State, according to the project’s promoters.
