Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has on behalf of his government signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU with Chinese firm, Inspur Group of China for upgrade of the State tax authority processes.

Inspur is one of the largest global data center and cloud computing solutions provider in the world which provides IT products and services to over 100 countries across all the continents.
Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji signed on behalf of the state government while the Vice President of Inspur, Mr. Peter Huang signed on behalf of his company, late Sunday evening, in Shandong, China.
The MOU, which was signed in the presence of the state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the company management, also covers improvement in city sustainability and inclusiveness by fully utilizing the internet to make smart responses to various demands of public services, data management and grains management.
Governor Ganduje said in a speech after the signing ceremony that “the agreement aims to enhance the position of Kano as a mega city capable of rubbing shoulders with other cities across the world”.
“It is to strengthen the state’s capacity in some key areas like security, through the implementation of the safe city system, revenue generation, agricultural sector particularly grains management in view of the fact that Kano has the biggest grains market in West Africa, the Dawanau Market,” he explained.
In addition, he revealed that Kano State University of Science and Technology would soon sign a MoU with Inspur for smart computer at the university, noting that Kano stands to benefit a lot from the expertise of the company.
