President Bola Tinubu has announced the creation of the Federal Ministry of Livestock Development.

The President disclosed this on Tuesday when he inaugurated the Presidential Committee on Livestock Reforms at the Council Chamber in the State House in Abuja.

The Committee is to be chaired by the President, with the former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega, as the Deputy Chairman.

The Committee is expected to propose recommendations aimed at fostering a peaceful co-existence between herders and farmers while ensuring the security and economic well-being of all Nigerians.

Tinubu’s announcement comes 10 months after he approved the establishment of the presidential committee to address herders and farmers’ clashes and bolster livestock and dairy industries.

He set up the committee after receiving a report from the National Conference on Livestock Reforms and Mitigation of Associated Conflicts in Nigeria.

The committee, chaired by the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, gave the President 21 recommendations, including creating a Ministry of Livestock Resources.

The President said the committee would work with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security to come up with lasting solutions to the age-long crisis between farmers and herders, while ensuring the security and economic well-being of all Nigerians.

Following the approval, he said the Federal Government is fully prepared to cover the cost of acquiring the land to ensure the co-existence between herders and farmers.
