Open letter to the office of the vice president, Yemi Osibanjo


The Office Of The Vice President,

National Livestock Transformation Plans, is a lofty idea, given the content of the project, but the programme would have been better driven, focusing on the humans components from which the crisis emanated.

National Farmers and Herders Transformation Plans NFHTP, would have been the appropriate nomenclature for the project.

However, this available statistics, I believe will assist your office on the need to concentrate on States having the needed resources (land) in abundance for the successful implementation of National LIVESTOCK TRANSFORMATION Plans.

Do note sir, that Anambra, Enugu, Abia, Imo and Ebonyi States, put together equal, 29525KM², while Kogi alone is 29833KM², meaning the entire South East is a little less than Kogi State in land mass.

Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo and Ekiti States put together equal to 76320KM², Lagos is 3345KM².

Niger State is 76363KM², meaning
Niger State alone is more than the entire Southwest States, excluding Lagos.

Sir, without been mischievous, the north have more than enough enough land to take care of NLTP.
The concentration of Muhammadu Buhari led Government, should be how to make the North more habitable for his people, this I believe all Nigerians will ready support in every way possible.

Sir, may I appeal to you, to use your office to initiate NLTP as a project to make the North habitable for Herders and their flocks through her programmes.

Do have the highest regard of our organisation and the support of all well meaning Nigerian in this direction.
