In a bold move to address the longstanding conflict between farmers and herders, President Bola Tinubu has established the Federal Ministry of Livestock Development. This historic decision aims to end the perennial clashes and promote peaceful coexistence, food security, and economic growth.

Tinubu’s announcement comes after inaugurating the Presidential Committee on Livestock Reforms, chaired by himself and former INEC chairman Attahiru Jega as deputy chairman. The committee will propose recommendations to foster harmony between herders and farmers, ensuring national security and economic well-being.

This development marks a significant shift in addressing the decades-long dispute, which has claimed hundreds of lives and hindered agricultural development. By creating a dedicated ministry, Tinubu’s administration demonstrates its commitment to resolving this critical issue.
