“However, before the end of 2021, my office, under the supervision of the Miyetti Allah National President, will organise a local training programme in Nigeria to screen and recruit the first set of trainers and teachers going to Silicon Valley, California, for the overseas training.
“The primary objective is to expose them to modern and sophisticated techniques in cattle husbandry, dairy abattoir and cattle field grazing."
Miyetti Allah sends important message to National Assembly
Recall that Legit.ng reported that the Miyetti Allah association has sent an important message to Nigeria's National Assembly to stop southern state governors from signing the anti-open grazing into law.
According to the association, the law will worsen cattle rustling and undermine stability and also hamper the ability of pastoralists to function effectively. This was disclosed by Saleh Alhassan, national secretary of the association, on Monday, September 6.
Going further, he claimed that the anti-open grazing law would destroy livestock production and send millions of people that depend on the livestock value chain into poverty.
