A renowned Nigerian textile Business mogul, Alhaji Sammani Adamu says the federal government plans to revive the moribund textile industry in the north will in no small way reduce unemployment and security challenges facing the region.
Alhaji Sammani Adamu, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, El-Samad Group of companies, stated this in an interview with Solacebase on Thursday in Kano.
He said a successful revival of the industry will mean saving for the nation huge sums of resources that were hitherto going out of the nation.
‘’This will reduce capital flight and a lot of foreign exchange utilize in importing textile materials. By the time most of the textile companies in Kano, Kaduna, Sokoto, Katsina and other states are in operations, there will be job opportunities for the youths and revenue generation for the government as well, ‘’said Alhaji Sammani.
He said a critical look at Bompai, Challawa and Sharada industrial areas where many textile companies that used to be the pride of the nation and even West African countries are no more, makes most of us sad.
According to him, the concerted effort needed to be put together to resuscitate the moribund textile industries.
El-Samad Group of companies
Alhaji Sammani Adamu said the concept of El-Samad Group of Companies started in 1997 and was registered in 1998 with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).
‘’The company has come up with modern methodologies for easing business activities with minimum liability to both the company and its customers. We have been bringing the best selection of products and merchandise to our customers by introducing a mall-like setting with digitized facilities that ease the way of conducting business as against the traditional processes.’’
‘’This is a total deviation from the traditional way of doing business, especially in our chosen sector. The innovation we have introduced has also established greater trust between the company and our numerous customers on having quality products being delivered to them nationwide in accordance with the digitally accepted module.’’
The El-Samad Group of companies boss said despite the challenging business environment the organization has six branches across Kano state dealing in various ranges of our products.
‘’We are also planning to expand our company to other states across the federation for easy access to our business associates in Nigeria and beyond.’’
