JUST IN : Tinubu creates new Ministry



President Bola Tinubu has announced the creation of the Federal Ministry of Livestock Development on Tuesday.

This announcement was made during the inauguration of the Renewed Hope Livestock Reform Implementation Committee at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

However, the President did not name the Minister for the new ministry. If it is a new nominee, the name will need to be forwarded to the Senate for screening and confirmation.

The formation of this committee followed the submission of a report from the National Conference on Livestock Reforms and Mitigation of Associated Conflicts in Nigeria.
