The Presidency has noted that it did not suspend the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) contrary to speculation in many quarters.

This assertion came from the Senior Policy Adviser (Agriculture Interventions Coordination) in the Office of the Vice President Andrew Kwasari in Abuja on Tuesday.

Kwasari spoke during a training session organised for the executives of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN).

“No, the National Livestock Transformation Plan has not been suspended; in fact, it has been enhanced because Mr. President, in his wisdom, has spoken and directed that this is the plan that we should be working around to implement,” he added.

“We will need an all-encompassing committee of the National Economic Council, National Food Security Council, and Federal Executive Council working together to deliver this plan.

“So, for us, this is the type of leadership that the country needs. So, there is no mention of suspension whatsoever for the NLTP.”
