Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo will visit Adamawa on September 10th to inaugurate the National Livestock Transformation Plan.
The plan, which is to run from 2019-2028, is an initiative of the Federal Government, in collaboration with States under the auspices of the National Economic Council , NEC.
It is targeted at supporting the development of Nigeria’s livestock sector and will initially be implemented in seven pilot States of Adamawa, Benue, Kaduna, Plateau, Nasarawa, Taraba and Zamfara.
The inauguration of the programme in Adamawa is to formalise what has been agreed upon by State governors at NEC.
Osinbajo had, while speculations were rife regarding RUGA, clarified that he was not supervising RUGA.
Few days after the vice president’s clarification, President Muhammadu Buhari suspended the RUGA initiative.
Findings from the Office of the Vice-President indicate that the suspension of the Ruga Settlement initiative has not been reversed.
