“In our various states, we have great opportunities; why should Nigerians continue to face conflicts?” Tinubu questioned, highlighting the potential of the committee to establish a dedicated Ministry of Livestock Development. This ministry, according to Tinubu, would facilitate research and cross-breeding, aiming to curtail senseless killings and revitalize traditional livestock farming methods.

Acknowledging the crucial role of stakeholders, including state governments, Tinubu underscored the importance of reviewing and repositioning livestock farming practices to unlock new avenues for growth and prosperity.

He expressed gratitude to Abdullahi Ganduje, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for assembling a team of seasoned experts dedicated to activating opportunities within the livestock sector.
