The Katsina state government and Nigerian conglomerate, BUA Group have entered into an agreement to facilitate a $500 million Katsina Textile and Garment Cluster that incorporates about 500 Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

The State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, gave the government’s commitment to cooperate with the billionaire industrialist and founder of BUA Group, Abdulsamad Rabiu, on the project when he received BUA’s Executive Director, Kabir Rabiu, in Muhammadu Buhari House, Katsina.

Masari, who approved a committee led by his deputy, Mannir Yakubu, to facilitate the initiative and determine the suitable location of 500 hectares of land for project, said the government has not only waived all fees and taxes involving the state but would bring its influence to bear on those involving federal government in a bid to boost diversification of the nation’s economy.
