According to the former lawmaker, the insecurity in the North caused by banditry and insurgency will not allow any livestock or agricultural transformation plan to succeed.
Hence, he urged the governors to tackle the insecurity first before embarking on transformational plans.
See his tweet below:
Endorsement is paperwork,but no livestock or agric transformation plan in the north will succeed without first addressing the problems of pervasive insecurity;When bandits & Insurgents determines who goes to or comes back from the farm,we must first deal with the men with AK.
