Kaduna State and the German government are poised to enhance their economic partnership, collaborating to drive sustainable growth and development in the state.
Governor Uba Sani’s administration, under his leadership, is actively seeking support and partnerships to propel the state’s progress. In December 2023, Governor Uba Sani visited the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) to explore potential collaborations, resulting in a successful visit where GIZ expressed its readiness to support the state in achieving its development goals.
As a follow-up, representatives from GIZ, led by Country Director Dr. Markus Wagner, recently visited the state government for a two-day visit to discuss and solidify economic partnerships between the two parties.
The discussions, facilitated by Deputy Governor Dr. Hadiza Balarabe, focused on specific areas where the state seeks support from the German government, including energy, digital transformation, investment promotion, and agriculture.
Dr. Wagner expressed gratitude for the warm hospitality and reaffirmed GIZ’s commitment to supporting Kaduna State in achieving sustainable development and creating job opportunities. The Deputy Governor, on behalf of the state government, thanked GIZ for their partnership and assured them of the state’s dedication to making the most of the collaboration.
Dr. Balarabe highlighted progress made in the discussions, particularly in areas such as digital transformation, investment promotion, energy, and agriculture. She disclosed that GIZ’s support in these sectors will have a positive impact on the state’s development and the lives of its people.
