Kaduna gov’ship: Uba Sani empowers traders with N20m

The Kaduna state All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship flagbearer, Senator Uba Sani, has empowered traders with N20 million.

Meanwhile, his campaign has also got a major boost as the Arewa Traders Association in collaboration with the Kaduna State Traders Association from all 23 local government areas across the state unanimously declared their support for his candidacy and that of presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as well as the APC in Kaduna state.

While addressing attendees at the event, the lawmaker thanked the association for coming together to declare their support for his candidacy and the APC in Kaduna state. 

He gave a run down of some of his efforts as a senator, representing Kaduna Central and as Chairman, Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions through which he facilitated CBN interventions to assist over 12,000 households and SMEs with grants/loans to boost their businesses, following the effects of COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.

He explained that in order to further complement the efforts of the state government, which has already constructed ultra-modern markets, he has supported a number of underprivileged traders with N20 million “that will help them secure the 10% equity to own shops in the markets across the state.” 

While assuring them of his commitment to consolidating the efforts of the present administration in boosting the economy of Kaduna state, Senator Uba Sani reiterated his pledge to continue to facilitate soft loans to assist more traders who are in need of business capital. 

“Different speakers took turns to express their readiness for the journey ahead in ensuring the success of our great party. I also joined other party officials in receiving thousands of decampees from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC)”, he revealed.
