GDP Shows Kano Underperforming – Bashir Ahmad

Former presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, has lamented that Kano State is underperforming following the latest GDP of states in the country.

According to the list released by Budgit, Kano which is the second most populous state in Nigeria ranks 30 with N4.20trn as GDP.

Reacting, Ahmad shared on X, “The latest rankings of the GDP of Nigerian states placed my state, Kano at number 13, behind states like Anambra, Bayelsa, Niger, Kaduna, and Benue. This is indeed concerning, especially that Kano is the second most populous state in the country. It is clear that Kano is underperforming economically. Ideally, we should be among the top three states in Nigeria, economically.”
