FCT Bans Cows From Parading The Streets

cowsThe Federal Capital Territory has started a major wipe out on cattle movement in the streets of Abuja.

This is happening after residents held a protest that the animals constitute a nuisance and poses a threat to their healthy living.

The protest prompted FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello to hold a meeting with members of the Miyatti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Abuja, where he ordered the herdsmen to move their cattle out of the city for the safety of the residents.

Bello was quoted as saying,

‘You have to understand that when Abuja Environment Protection Board says cattle should not roam the city, it is not because they want to prevent cattle breeders from raring cattle in the FCT.

Basically, it is just for safety, it’s for the safety of your cattle and above all, safety of the citizens.’

Meanwhile, according to the reports culled from News Agency of Nigeria, the Ministerial Task Team on environment under the Chairmanship of Squadron leader, Abdullahi Monjel will take up the responsibility to combat movement of cows from the street.
