Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State made the disclosure when a team of economic experts from Lagos led by the state Commissioner for Economic planning and Budget, Mr Akinyemi Ashade paid him a courtesy visit in Kano.
He said the partnership would be of great economic benefit to the two states in view of the fact that they (the states) share so many things in common in terms of population, economic viability and other opportunities.
Earlier, Ashade said the committee was in the state to discuss with its Kano counterpart on areas of common economic interest for development of the two states.
He expressed optimism that the economic and Investment summit would serve as a window for growth and development not only for the two states but the country.
