The Nigerian Association of Small-Scale Industrialists (NASSI), Kano Branch said preparations are in top gears for the empowerment of no fewer than 50 persons in POS business in Kano.
The Chairman, Aminu Ibrahim Kurawa who made this known to news men said, the empowerment is collaboration between NASSI, the Industrial Training Funds (ITF) and the Kano State Government.
The scheme, he said is intended to further cushion the effects of the ongoing economic reforms embarked upon by the present administration which has caused further hardship particularly on the small-scale businesses.
Kurawa added that NASSI on its part has concluded arrangements for the provision of fifty (50) POS terminals ordered from overseas while the ITF is expected to provide the beneficiaries with basic training on how to operate such devices.
“We have decided to partner with Kano state Government and the ITF to train and empower fifty people in the state in the POS business”.
“It is our own way of assisting the society particularly at a time people are finding it difficult to cope with the current economy situation in the country”.
“Everything is set from our side and we are finalizing plans with the state government which will play a crucial role in the programme and the ITF are standing-by to offer what they know how to do best”.
“We believe this empowerment will go a long way to assist the beneficiaries, their families, the economy of the state and Nigeria by extension”, he added.
