President Bola Tinubu has appointed the former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Attahiru Jega, as the co-chairman of the committee to coordinate the implementation of the livestock reforms in the country.

According to a statement by the presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu made the appointment during the inauguration of the Presidential Committee on Implementation of Livestock Reforms at the presidential villa in Abuja, on Tuesday

The President said Jega will coordinate the Committee established to address obstacles to agricultural productivity and open up new opportunities which benefit farmers, herders, processors, and distributors in the livestock-farming value chain.

Tinubu emphasized that the implementation of the reforms will require the collective efforts of members of the committee, drawn from the public and private sectors, state governors, and all Nigerians.

Tinubu said the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), will ensure the removal of all legal obstacles to the implementation of the reforms, while the Minister of Communication, Innovation and Digital Economy, Bosun Tijani, will provide support with automation.

“Modern technology is available to us. We are ready to work. I said at the beginning, with you, all of you, the solution is here, and we must run with it. Any law that might inhibit the promotion and actualization of our objectives, the Attorney-General is here, please give it a priority, and the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning is here; create a budget for it to grow, and the Minister of Finance is here as well to work out the money.
