The leadership of the Senate chamber, Ahmad Lawan, has pledged to ensure that owners of livestock businesses are supported by the Nigerian government.
According to Lawan, the livestock sub-sector has suffered neglect over the years and called on the authorities to accord the sector due recognition and support.
He said, “This sector, the livestock sector, does not get the attention of the government. And I find it strange that here, you have a sector that has the potential of boosting our economy significantly and yet it is neglected.
“I am not a Fulani in any way. I don’t have any Fulani blood but I think our livestock rearers have not received a fair deal all through our history.
