The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Dr Udoma Udo Udoma, said this in a keynote address at the second Kano Economic and Investment Summit in Kano on Tuesday.

The summit is part of activities organised by Kano State Government to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the creation of the state.

Udoma said the Federal Government had also planed to improve the power sector generation capacity to 10, 000MW through the renewable energy sources, enhanced transmission equipment’s and a more effective distribution network.

According to him, the government is committed to reviving the manufacturing sector, to achieve an annual growth of 8.5 per cent to meet 10.6 per cent growth rate by 2020.

“We also intend to achieve self sufficiency in petroleum products during the period.

“we also want to be exporter of some key agricultural products such as rice, groundnut, cassava and vegetable oil, among others.

He said the Federal Government intended to create no fewer than 15 million jobs for the unemployed persons in the country as part of efforts to fight poverty particularly among the youth.

He said based on the plan, 3.7 million jobs would be created annually to address the unemployment challenges in the country.

“If you get people out of poverty, you must provide them with jobs, hence our commitment to provide jobs,”he said.

He disclosed that the Federal Government had set aside certain amount of money in this year’s budget to provide infrastructure for the revival of the free trade zone in Kano.

He said this would give exporters in Kano the opportunity to take advantage of the funds.

The minister, who commended Kano State Government for initiating the summit, said the Federal Government would continue to support such giant strides aimed at promoting economic growth in the country.

“Federal Government is encouraged by the effort of many states for the progress they are making in agricultural sector of the economy.

If this people can stop talking and giving the masses false hope, perhaps Nigerians might reduce their anger on them.

In 1992, when we are being driven to school by my Dad, the then Babagida administration announced that there will be constant light before June 1993. I remember how excited I was.

Only for me to realize that it's bin always been a promise since 1979 till date

I think we don't have people that know mathematics because they have been promising us and telling us this since 2003. So they can't add gwatts together and figure how much they need oil.

You guys keep campaigning for 2019 over this light matter. How many megawatts will you generate in 2017/2018? That's what you should be telling us because God knows your time won't pass 2019.
