Kano, a state in Nigeria, West African region, covers an Area of 42,900 square meters with more than 1.9million hectares of fertile land for Agricultural production.

It is also one of the most populated states in Nigeria and a strategic location for Commercial activities in neighboring West African Countries: Republic of Niger, Chad, Cameroon, Benin, Burkina Faso and Senegal.

It possesses a population of over 10 million people and is renowned for its weaving, dyeing, tanning and leather works. Iron smelting in the area dates back to the 7th Century of the Gregorian calendar.

A prominent historian, Leo Africanus, otherwise known as Alhassan bn Muhammad al-Wazzan al-Zayyati, visited Hausaland around 1512-1513 and described Kano inhabitants as skilled craftsmen and wealthy merchants. Also, a native of Ragusa [Dubrovnik] in modern Croatia, who had once lived in Kano, between 1550-1560, described the city as the third largest city in Africa, after Cairo and Fez.

During the pre-Colonial era, Commercial and Industrial activities of Kano centered around exporting high quality dyed cloth, tanned and dyed leather, Sandals and importation of raw materials such as cotton from Zaria, Kola nuts from Akan forest in the Republic of Ghana and Salt from the Central Saharan region.

In 1824, Hugh Clapperton entered Kano and described the city as “the great emporium of the Kingdom of Hausa land.” Henrinch Barth also visited the city, for the first time, in 1851 and noted the importance of Commerce and Industry, especially the cotton cloth woven and dyed in the city or neighboring towns. He described Kano as a famous “Centerport of Central Africa.”

Lugard was in Kano in 1903 and talked of the city as exceeding anything he had ever seen or imagined in Africa. By 1950s Kano had already began to witness tremendous growth in the industrial activities as a result of which the city became the 2nd largest industrial/economic centre in the country with its excellent communication network, the Railway, fairly developed infrastructural facilities and high population density the city provides a national attraction for investors to establish industries or business houses to cater for the ever growing demand not only in Kano but all over the country.
