Nigeria loses billions of dollars in livestock
The MP representing Imo West in the National Assembly, Senator Rochas Okorocha, said Nigeria was losing billions of dollars from livestock deals, urging the federal government to invest in the business.
He said this in an interview with Sunday Politics, noting that if the livestock business is used properly, it could create a million jobs for Nigerians.
“Do you know how many billions of dollars this country lacks without farming in the Federal Republic of Nigeria?” churches.
“This livestock business can create a million jobs for Nigerians if well managed. I would like the Nigerians to call me or the governor would call me and say, “Look at Roche, the billion dollars we want to give to young people and share it, take and fix the livestock business.”
“If I don’t create a million jobs in the shortest time possible, know that I am not Rocha. Is it a good deal. Poor people will say, “You see money, and people are just joking.”
When asked whether the administration of President Muhammad Bukhari, together with the Nigerians, managed to solve the problem of deteriorating security, the economy and other sectors, Okorocha did not answer either in the affirmative or negative.
Stressing that if President Bukhari failed, then the defeat is collective, Okorocha advised not to politicize the country’s problems.
He also thanked 17 southern governors for meeting in Asaba, the capital of Delta State, to discuss sensitive issues affecting their region, calling this meeting the first in the history of the country.
Harkorocha, a former governor of Imo state, said the call for dialogue from regional governors is a call for peace, not war.
“From this whole meeting, I realized that things are not going well and I like the term they use – national dialogue.
“Dialogue means that there is something that you do that I don’t like, but there is something that you do that I don’t like. Can we join the round table and discuss this?
“This is a call for peace, not war. So it shouldn’t be taken out of context and doesn’t sound like polarization. I don’t think this was the intention. “
Okoroch’s remarks came five days after the southern governors agreed on restructuring, a ban on grazing and other issues.
The governors also asked President Muhammad Bukhari to convene a nationwide dialogue to address the issue of riots among various groups in the region.
