Terrorism: Traders bemoan declining business activities

15 September 2014, 09:33

Kano - Traders in Kano have bemoaned the dwindling business activities in the area.

The Chairman of theTraders Association in the state, Liti Kulkul, blamed the development on the current security challenges in the North-East.

According to Kulkul, most of the customers from Maiduguri, Adamawa, Yobe, Cameroun, Chad and Niger Republic had stopped visiting the city since the Boko Haram insurgency started in the sub-region .

Similary, an electronics dealer in Sabon Gari market, Monica Ike, decried the situation and called for prayers for divine intervention.

"We are praying to God to restore the glory of Kano by improving its business activities which have witnessed serious setback since the attack of January 20, 2012.

"I knew Kano for over 28 years as a big commercial centre where traders come from different parts of the country, including neighbouring countries such as Niger Republic to do business here.''

Another trader at Singer market, Ado Mani, said he used to get between 20 and 30 customers daily but now he hardly got five because of the situation.
