Who is Giving Out the Best Black Friday Deal in Kaduna?

Black Friday originated in the USA.

As Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday in November, the following Friday is often observed as an unofficial holiday. Because many people are off work, shops drop prices, usually for one day only, to start the Christmas season. UK shops have since caught on to this trend and it was brought across the pond a few years ago. Between 2010 and 2013, Black Friday gradually built up momentum in the UK. In 2014, Black Friday was the peak pre-Christmas online sales day.

Exactly how “Black Friday” entered the vernacular of consuming Africa and Nigeria in particular is still a bit of a mystery.

Whatever its origins, Black Friday has become nearly ubiquitous in the hearts and minds of businesses and shoppers alike, being used to sell all manner of goods around the world.

Here in Kaduna, only jumia and konga shoppers seem to be having all the fun since many retailers in the city don’t see any need to participate in black Friday.

Jigawa tops list as Zobo export fetches Nigeria $35m in 9 months

The Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Service, NAQS, has said the country generated $35 million within nine months in 2017 from hibiscus (zobo) export, with Jigawa state emerging as the largest producer of the commodity.
The Coordinating Director, NAQS, Vincent Isegbe, disclosed this at the ‘National Survey of 13 Agricultural Commodities by the Inter-ministerial Committee on Prevention and Control of Mycotoxins in Agricultural Commodities’ meeting held in Abuja.
Mr Isegbe said further that the essence of the Committee was to know the prevalence type of mycotoxins and on which commodities, in order to help guide policy makers decide on what to do next and also open the country’s economy to opportunities in research, development, public health disease prevention and the general wellbeing of the nation.


According to him, hibiscus popularly called zobo has high commercial value that state governments could key into, which already Jigawa State has and now the largest producer of the commodity, followed by other states like Kastina, Kano, Zamfara, Kebbi, Zamfara, Borno and Yobe.

While, states like Edo, Kwara could cultivate zobo plant due to the dry weather they have and would also boost their revenue generation.
“In the last one year there has been increase in exports of agricultural commodities. Hibiscus alone in one country, Mexico, generated $35 million in nine months. Last year we made more than $20 million, and that is just one commodity. We have done what we call export improvement initiative for so many commodities. That means we are bringing those commodities that were lying low to ensure that they are properly positioned for export.
“They use it for organic colouring agents for drinks and wines, and as natural blended drink as we drink zobo here in Nigeria, the pharmaceuticals also use it for colouring because its organic.

“In 2016 it generated $20 million, while in 2017 it generated $35 million within nine months. 1, 983 containers were exported to Mexico alone, while other countries in Europe like Germany, Greece, Latvia, and countries of former USSR.”
