Miyetti Allah Asks For Creation of Livestock Ministry

The Miyetti Allah of Kautal core, a Fulani Socio-cultural association, urged the government to create Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries "as obtainable in many African countries".

The association said this was in line with the recommendation of the Inter-ministerial Committee on Livestock Development in Nigeria 2015, the Report of the President Committee on Pastorialist and Insecurity 2014 and the National Livestock Transformation Programme.

Its National President, Abdullahi Badejo and the National Secretary, Saleh Alhassan, made the call at a National Peace summit and investiture of Queen Mother Amina Temitope Ajayi as the Miyetti Allah Brand Ambassador, held at the Maliya market headquarters of the association in Karu Local Government of Nasarawa State.

The association also urged the National Assembly to intervene and stop state government from enacting the anti-open grazing law.

It said the anti-open grazing law would undermine the relative peace and stability currently employed in the local communities, threaten social order and worse cattle rustling in the country.

What is your view about the demand of Miyetti Allah? Should government create the ministries?
