India plans to establish textile institute in Kaduna

15 April 2013, 09:27

Kaduna, April 14, 2013 (NAN) Following the restoration of peace in Kaduna State, the Indian Government has expressed its willingness to construct a textile institute in Kaduna, an official said. 

Alhaji Ahmed Maiyaki, the Director-General on Media and Publicity to Gov. Muktar Yero of Kaduna state, made the plan known in Kaduna on Sunday during an  interview with journalists.

He said that the institute would be the first of its kind in Africa.

"A delegation came from India and met with His Excellency expressing their intention to build a textile institute in Kaduna. This will be the first of its kind in Africa.

"This is a product of prevailing peace being experienced. His Excellency had also signified interest and commitment to support the project to be actualised," Maiyaki  said.

He said that last week, a Polish delegation visited and expressed its intention to invest in Kaduna.

Maiyaki said the ambassador of Palestine was also in Kaduna to invite the state government for economic partnership, adding that the developments would not have been possible without peace.

While appealing for understanding, love and tolerance among the people of the state, Maiyaki said that with peace the state would soon be the envy of all.

"I am happy to announce that for this year, Freights International (a rating agency)  has rated Kaduna as having very bright future safe for investment and having very high economic performance," he said.

Maiyaki said: "The good old days are back again."

He described the development as a demonstration of the commitments of the state governor.

On provision of security, Maiyaki said the governor recently bought 40 vehicles for the police to aid their work.

In an effort to sustain the prevailing peace, Maiyaki said the governor held a meeting with all stakeholders from southern Kaduna after a meeting with Miyetti Allah cattle breeders.
