The phase 1 of the Kano Economic City (KEC), a multi-billion-naira mega shopping project, would be completed by February 2021.
The premier economic hub, touted as the largest modern market in Northern Nigeria, is situated on a 117 hectares of land lying on Dangoro village along Kano-Zaria Highway. It is designed to accommodate 13,000 shops of various sizes within the three phase project.
The project, being constructed under a public private partnership between Kano State government, Brains and Hammers Limited and a financial institution, is projected as a trans-border market hub in the region.
The Chairman, KEC Implementation Committee, Alhaji Mohammad Aliyu, disclosed during a facility tour by journalists that the city was conceived to provide access to affordable accommodation, conducive atmosphere for business transactions and adequate security to inhabitants.
