Transformation of the Livestock scheduled to hold in Abuja from Tuesday.
‘The way we are consuming cows, slaughtering them is quite alarming.
Lagos alone consumes 6,000 cows a day, that’s the figure at abattoirs,
not figure from birthday parties and burial ceremonies and so on.
Imagine what Port Harcourt consumes; or Umuahia, Abuja, Kano, Kaduna and
Maiduguri. If you add it up, we may be eating up to 80,000 to 90,000
cows a day and we are not calving as many. Which means a day will come,
if the West Africans don’t come into Nigeria with their cows, we may
find out we have no cattle. So, that’s an economic danger that faces
us’, he said.
