Lalong calls for implementation of Transformation Plan


Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, on Tuesday said the country would not be having a farmers-herders crisis if the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) was well implemented.

The governor said this during an interview with Newsmen.

He said the National Livestock Transformation Plan was conceived since the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan and had been used partially in handling farmer-herders crisis even in Plateau State.

NLTP was proposed by the former minister of agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, in 2018 and was adopted by the National Economic Council (NEC) headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

The plan allows state governments to implement whichever aspect they feel comfortable with.
