Green Kilishi: A new look at Nigeria’s favourite snack

Green Kilishi: A new look at Nigeria’s favourite snack

The solar-powered kilishi making factory built under the Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) in 2020 has transformed lives and livelihoods in Yaba village in the Funtua senatorial Zone of Katsina.
