Addressing newsmen on the preparation of the 37th Kaduna International Trade Fair scheduled for 26th February to 6th March, 2016, Hajiya Dankaka who doubled as Vice Chairperson of the 37th Fair, charged president Mohammadu Buhari to sustain the momentum of stamping out terrorism in the Northern parts of the country which has large deposit of mineral resources.

“Because of persistent plague of terrorism and tribal conflict foreign minners were scared out of Nigeria, especially in North East, North Central and North West. So, the 31st deadline President Mohammadu Buhari gave the security agencies to stem out insurgency in those affected arrears was a welcome idea,” She said.

Hajiya Dankaka advised President Buhari to sustain the Artisanal policy on mining which was initiated by President Jonathan regime, adding that it was meant in encouraging one local government, one mineral prospect.

On the forthcoming trade fair, Hajiya Dankaka said adequate security arrangement have been made to secure lives and properties before, during and after the fair, adding that trade fairs are not meant for profits.

“Trade Fair is not to make money. It is basically an avenue for trade links. We creat the platform for businessmen and women, countries and states around the globe to meet and initiate partnership in their respective businesses,” She said
