Prof Osinbajo

The National Economic Council (NEC) has proposed a budget of N100billion for the implementation of the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP)

The proposal was submitted by NEC’s sub-committee on farmers/herders’ crisis on Thursday at a meeting presided over by vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The Chairman of the sub-committee and Governor of Ebonyi State, Mr Dave Umahi, made the presentation to NEC.

The Ebonyi governor noted that contrary to the widely held belief, the NLTP was not about cows alone but had three planks, including care for persons displaced by farmers/herders’ crisis and education programmes.
