Chief Executive Officer of Nationwide League One Alhaji Hassan Abdullahi Garo says Kano will host the forthcoming Football Business Summit strategically designed to engage individuals from the business sector and explore the untapped potentialities within football.

Drawing inspiration from the success in Lagos, Garo highlighted the decision to choose Kano, citing the opportunity to foster partnerships in a region with relatively lower engagement.
