El-Rufai Welcomes Sanusi As Vice-Chair of KADIPA

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai has formally welcomed the former emir of Kano State, Muhammadu Sanusi II to the board of Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency (KADIPA) as Vice-Chairman.

Speaking at the formal inauguration of the KADIPA board, the governor thanked Sanusi for accepting to serve the people of Kaduna state, while charging KADIPA to redouble its efforts in making Kaduna State the topmost investment destination in Nigeria, by improving its Ease of Doing Business ranking.

The governor disclosed that KADIPA has been a very important and successful vehicle in the investment drive of the state, helping since 2015 to attract over$2.1bn in actual and pledged investments.

El Rufai also pointed out that KADIPA will be competing not just with other states in Nigeria for investments but with all emerging markets, adding that the agency should not rest on its oars in its drive to attract businesses to Kaduna state.

In response, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II and the Vice Chairman of the Board expressed delight at attending its first meeting since he was made a member.

The former Governor of Central Bank-cum-Emir and renowned economist, promised to contribute his best to uplifting KADIPA. He also gave his commitment to make inputs in the overall policy of Kaduna State Government.

In 2018, the World Bank had rated Kaduna state as the best sub-national in “Ease of Doing Business ranking,” and in 2020, the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission(NIPC) ranked the state as “the first in the quantum of foreign direct investment attracted within the first six months of the year.”
