The National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) is an initiative of the National Economic Council headed by myself with all the State Governors as members. It is a comprehensive policy plan designed to accelerate the pace and scope of change in Nigeria’s agricultural system.
The #NLTP aims to build an ecosystem for Livestock production, peaceful coexistence, economic development, and food security.
The NLTP is a product of consultations among different stakeholders- State Governors, Community leaders, Farmers, Herders, and other relevant persons.
Each state is responsible for a suitable delivery mechanism for the NLTP. Basically, each state decides on what works for their state.
There is no land grab but a win-win system where both farmers and herders benefit economically and the age-long conflict and tension stop.
I am in Adamawa State to launch the State-adopted model of the #NationalLivestockTransformationPlan
The National Livestock Transformation Plan is different from RUGA.
The RUGA plan was scrapped by President Muhammadu Buhari on July 2019.
