Emir Bayero, who visited the Dangote pavilion at the on-going Kano International Trade Fair and was visibly elated by the company’s profile, had in his entourage Council members of the Kano Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KACCIMA) as well as other traditional rulers in the state.
The Emir also commended the Kano Government, the KACCIMA and other participating companies in the 42nd Kano International Trade Fair which will close on Saturday, December 11, 2021.
