National Livestock Plan, If Implemented, Will Solve Farmer-Herder Crisis – Lalong
Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, on Tuesday said the country would not be having a farmers-herders crisis if the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) was well implemented.
The governor said this during an interview on Channels Television breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily.
He said the National Livestock Transformation Plan was conceived since the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan and has been used partially in handling farmer-herders crisis even in Plateau State.
“When we came and we realised that what was really very prevalent was the Boko Haram issue and farmers-herdsmen issue, that was why the national livestock policy was introduced. But when we got to the period of implementation, there were a lot of problems here and there, even from some regions of the nation. Some who said they don’t want the national livestock plan or anything related to ranching because they don’t have the land,” he said.
