“All logistics for the approval will be completed in one week by the Commissioners of Land and Survey and Commerce and Industry,” the governor asserts.
He said that the store will be located along the Games Village area which is a strategic business location.
Earlier speaking, Alhaji Ibrahim Mijin Yawa, CEO of Sahad Stores said he will employ all the staffs that will man the store from construction to management from Bauchi.
“We need to train our upcoming youths in business to enable them to be self-reliant which will go a long way to quench the negative stereotypes associated with northern youths.
