The chairman of Dangote Group in the North-West Zone, Alhaji Aliyu Da'u Aliyu, has said that in the new year, the company will provide Nigerians with different jobs.
“In the same year, we will open our refinery with a filter capacity of more than 600,000 liters a day.
“Therefore, I think that if the refinery starts working, it will be easier to use petrol, gas, kerosene and others, with employment for Nigerians,” he said.
In his speech, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, praised the chairman of the Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote for his contribution to the economic development of the country and Africa at large.
He also thanked the management committee of the trade fair, under the leadership of Alhaji Ahmed Aminu, for a job well done.
He noted that despite the current economic situation, they tried their best to ensure that this year's market was won.
On the other hand, the NDIC has called on the public to contact their banks because of the loss, and bring their complaints to them by calling on their numbers or visiting their nearest offices.
The call came from Alhaji Bello Hassan, the Director General of the country's banking supervision company.
He added that people should avoid arrest and spy on their secrets, and also be careful where they send messages through their phones.
He said: “We came to the fair not to sell goods, but to protect public property.”
In his speech, the Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero, appealed to the public to cooperate with the Federal Government “because of the major projects it is doing for us such as the repair of the Kano to Kaduna Road.”
He also praised the management of the fair under the leadership of the Acting President, Alhaji Ahmed Aminu.
In his speech, the acting chairman of the fair market committee, said that more than 18 countries participated in the market this year.
On the other hand, the National Communication Commission (NCC) has called on the public to report their complaints about the telecommunication companies, especially in the case of taking callers without making a phone call.
The company also gave away 10 mobile phones through the distributor.
In his speech, the chairman of this year's fair, Alhaji Ahmad Aminu, said that: “Despite the situation, we have come to, we have found this market to be inefficient and have various problems, including the payment of the monthly salaries owed to us, but however, we were determined and with God's help, the market was stable.”
He said: “We will not forget the help that the Kano State Government, under the leadership of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has given us to ensure the market.
“Also, we will not forget the help of the old man, Alhaji Aminu Dantata, for helping the poor from the beginning.”
He also commended the committee, under the leadership of the president, Alhaji Umar Dansulaika and acting director, Aliyu Muhammad and elder, Alhaji Tijjani Usman for their commitment day and night for two months to ensure the market was stable.
“Finally, we thank the companies, inside and outside the country, such as Dangote, NDICN, SUN and ASPIRA and others.
“Also, we will not forget our customers from 16 different countries who came to the market such as India, Turkey, China and others.”
