Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 10th Jul, 2024 - tori.ng

This comment comes hours after President Bola Ahmed Tinubu announced the creation of the Livestock Development Ministry on Tuesday.

 
The Federal Government has been issued a warning by the Simon Ekpa-led Biafra Republic Government In-Exile.
 
This is as it rejected the creation of the Livestock Development Ministry.
 
Recall that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had on Tuesday announced the creation of the Livestock Development Ministry.
 
The development has been generating mixed reactions across the country.
 
During the Arise TV Morning Show on Wednesday, Dr Reuben Abati also joined those who are asking the Nigerian Government to drop the idea.
 
Posting on X, Ekpa condemned the establishment of the ministry, warning that it would not venture into Biafra land.
 
He frowned at the speed with which the Livestock Ministry was created and prioritized by Tinubu’s government.
 
It warned that Biafra land should not be included in the scheme of things regarding the Livestock Development Ministry.
 
“If you create it in any Biafra territory, we will not allow it. Do not include Biafra territory in your so-called livestock.

“The Fulanis called for the creation on June 23rd, 2024 and the President prioritized it by creating the ministry on July 9, 2024, in less than a month.

“We will not accept anything associated with it in Biafraland,” he said.
 
Recall that in June last Month, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, beaconed Tinubu to create a Livestock Development Ministry.
 
However, outside Ekpa-led BRGIE, Nigerians have criticized the importance of the Ministry amid the need to cut down on the high cost of governance in Nigeria.
 
For instance, Kalu Aja, a financial analyst also condemned the ministry creation, stating that the government was uninterested in budgetary discipline but in reelection.
 
Meanwhile, farmers under the aegis of the All Farmers Association of Nigeria said on Wednesday that the creation of the Livestock Ministry will end Farmers-herders conflicts.
 
With the creation of the Ministry, Nigeria now has a total of 50 ministries, resulting in an additional recurrent expenditures burden.
