President Bola Tinubu has established the Ministry of Livestock Development to address the ongoing farmer-herder conflicts.

The announcement was made in Abuja during the inauguration of the Livestock Reform Implementation Committee.

Although the Ministers to oversee the Ministry’s affairs are yet to be named, President Tinubu appointed Professor Attahiru Jega as the Deputy Chairman of the Committee, with the President serving as its Chairman.

Committee’s membership was carefully selected to remain apolitical due to the issue’s sensitivity, ensuring that the removal of political office holders would help achieve the Committee’s goals.
