Amidst Shoprite’s planned exit from Kano, the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate, led by Senator Barau I Jibrin, has initiated strategic measures to address and potentially halt the departure of the retail giant from the state. The senator has taken steps to engage with Shoprite’s management this week, aiming to discuss the matter and explore potential resolutions.
The official statement from the Deputy President of the Senate’s office underscores the significance of addressing this matter, recognizing it as a pure business issue. Despite the business nature of the concern, the office is committed to encouraging Shoprite to reconsider its decision and maintain its presence in Kano.
