Nairobi, September, 2022
This week the Agricultural Society of Kenya leadership team led by the Nairobi Branch Chair, Joseph Mugo paid Nairobi City County Governor, Sakaja Johnson a courtesy call at City hall.
Said Governor Sakaja, “It is great to see the Nairobi International Trade Fair back after two years, due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, and more pleased for this to be happening in my first year of administration. Trade and Agriculture play a critical role in Kenya’s economic blueprint, more so in Nairobi which sits at the centre of connecting and promoting two-way trade between Kenyans and other like-minded trading partners across the globe. It is about time that Nairobi reclaimed its position in the region as the preferred destination for our international trading partners. For it to be the economic hub in the region. For this to be realized my administration will work every day to Make Nairobi Work. To make Nairobi a city of Order, Dignity, Hope, and Opportunity.”
The County boss also said his administration had started the process of unifying all licenses for the business community in Nairobi and having one single license for all businesses trading in Nairobi County. The Governor said this would be geared towards ensuring the creation of an environment that is friendly to the business community and stopping the continuous harassment of traders.
During the visit by the ASK leadership the Governor and his Deputy, Njoroge Muchiri were officially inaugurated Patrons of the Nairobi show.
The Governor called upon Nairobi residents to attend the show which opens its doors from tomorrow 26th September – October, 2nd 2022. President William Ruto is expected to officially open the Nairobi ASK show on 27th September accompanied by Governor Sakaja.
