A giant step has been taken by the Kwara State Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KWACCIMA) to bring back to life some moribund industries in the state.
Part of the plans by the agency is to go into partnership with the state government, the Bank of Industry (BoI), the Bank of Agriculture (BOA) and others to provide financial support to enhance economic growth of the state.
Addressing journalists in Ilorin, the state capital, President of KWACCIMA, Mr Ahmed Adeoye Raji, noted that when such industries were rejuvenated, the state would benefit immensely from it through tax and others.
He further said KWACCIMA was working tirelessly to ensure artisans, farmers and traders get soft loans that would boost their businesses, urging them to join the chamber to enjoy such benefits.
While thanking the Mr Abdulfatah Ahmed-led administration for providing a peaceful environment for businesses to thrive in the state, the KWACCIMA boss appealed to the Governor to reduce the amount in obtaining Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) on farm lands.
