The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has commended President Bola Tinubu for creating the Ministry of Livestock Development, a move that is expected to unlock the potential of the trillion-naira livestock industry.

According to MACBAN’s President, Baba Othman-Ngelzarma, the new ministry will generate high-quality employment opportunities across the livestock value chain, boosting the Nigerian economy.

In a statement released on Tuesday in Abuja, Baba Othman-Ngelzarma, highlighted that the establishment of the ministry would unleash the potential of the trillion-naira livestock industry.

Othman-Ngelzarma also stated that the establishment of the ministry fulfills President Tinubu’s promise to enhance the productive capacity of Nigerian agriculture, ensuring food security.

He added that MACBAN had long advocated for a standalone ministry to modernize livestock production, aligning with global best practices.

On behalf of MACBAN’s leadership, including the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, and members nationwide, Othman-Ngelzarma congratulated President Tinubu on this significant development, which brings hope to Nigerian pastoralists under the Renew Hope Agenda.
