Industrialization is the engine of growth in any economy because it plays an important role in the provision of employment, foreign exchange earnings and general well being of a society. However, industrial growth is moving at a very slow rate in Nigeria and particularly in Kano state. This paper aims at unveiling the causes for poor performance of textile industry in Kano Nigeria In this study two textile companies were purposively chosen to represent both the functioning and non-function textile companies. To this end, structured and unstructured interviews and also practical observation were used to collect the data. It was found that grossly inadequate provision of basic infrastructure is main reason accounting for poor performance of textile industry in Kano, Nigeria.
