<p class="">Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says the endorsement of the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) by pastoral families and crop farmers in Gongoshi community, Adamawa State, is exciting and encouraging.</p>

<h1>Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, said the Vice President expressed delight that the community had accepted NLTP as a way of promoting peaceful co-existence as well as enhancing their livelihoods.</h1>

<p class="">The vice president formally inaugurated the implementation of NLTP at the Gongoshi Grazing Reserve in Mayo Belwa Local Government Area of Adamawa on Tuesday.</p>

<p class="">The Gongoshi Grazing Reserve would host 772 pastoral families and 190 crop farmers under the NLTP arrangement.</p>

<p class="">“<em>I see that everyone is happy that we are able to launch the scheme here today and I have seen from the various placards being carried around that they intend that this will be a peaceful implementation of a very laudable scheme.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The plan will provide a basis for peaceful coexistence, jobs for many, and a mechanism for resolving disputes.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The plan is one that hopes to birth tailor made ranches where cattle are bred, and meat and dairy products are produced using modern livestock breeding and dairy methods.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“This solves the problem of cattle grazing into and destroying farmlands. It ensures a practical response to the pressures on water and pasture by forces of climate change.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“And it provides a modern meat and dairy industry and in some cases integrated crop farming. The unique feature is that any participating state will determine its own model.”</em></p>

<p class="">Osinbajo commended the efforts of members of N-Power team, the N-Agro, for their efforts in the enumeration of the 772 pastoral families and 190 crop farmers within the reserve.</p>

<p class="">The vice president also clarified that the NLTP was not synonymous to RUGA as speculated in some quarters, noting that RUGA remained suspended.</p>

<p class="">“<em>The unique feature is that any participating state will determine its own model. I wish to emphasize that this is not RUGA.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The idea of RUGA settlements launched by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture created a problem when it was perceived that this was a plan to seize lands to create settlements for herders.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“RUGA was not the plan designed and approved by the governors and the President rightly suspended the implementation</em>,” he said.</p>

<p class="">Earlier, Gov. <strong>Umaru Fintiri</strong> of Adamawa thanked the Vice President and the Federal Government for the support given to the State to implement the NLTP.</p>

<p class="">Afterwards, crop farmers and pastoralists came together to jointly present gifts like caps, clothing and other local products to the vice president as appreciation for the programme.</p>

<p class="">Also in Yola, Osinbajo made a stop at Demsawo ward in Jimeta in Yola North LGA for a family visit to Mohammed Adamu, who is using a prosthetic limb made by the North East Innovation Hub of the Federal Government.</p>

<p class="">Adamu was awaiting admission into the state’s Polytechnic when he was attacked by the gang ”Shilo boys” last year and had his arm cut off.</p>

<p class="">He thereafter became a beneficiary of the Innovation Hubs programme under N-Power.</p>

<p class="">After receiving a new prosthetic limb from the hub, Adamu now works as a tailoring assistant and is able use his arm.</p>
