Beef industry contributes $16bn to Nigeria’s economy –Stakeholders

From ISAAC ANUMIHE, Abuja

Stakeholders with the Centre for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) have said that the beef industry alone contributes over $16 billion annually to the nation’s economy. 

Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, a stakeholder in the industry, Ms Kenang Rwang-Pam, advocated the provision of grazing reserves for the Fulani cattle rearers throughout the country, saying that if this is done, chances are that the amount could increase to $20 billion.

She stated that the beef industry accounts for about 90 per cent protein needs of Nigerians, adding that there is an urgent need for governments at all levels to find permanent solution to the unending crises between the herdsmen and farmers in the country to put a stop to the killing of Nigerians anytime the two groups clash.
Ms Rwang-Pam also recommended the provision of permanent grazing reserves for the herdsmen to the three tiers of government.

The CIPE is an international non-governmental organisation affiliated to some United Nations agencies. It was founded on the idea that economic and political freedom are intertwined and that progress and development come through a combination of political and economic liberalisation.

Rwang-Pam called on the media to intensify its efforts to bring lasting peace among the two groups through their patriotic reportage of events, stressing that the country would not only witness peaceful co-existence but increases in its overall economy.  “As I speak to you, the cattle rearers or the Fulani herdsmen in virtually all the nooks and crannies of Nigeria have no place to graze their cattle. The farmers also have no sufficient land to farm any longer.  All this makes it possible for the cattle to enter into farmlands at random to consume the crops of the farmers. Once this happens,the farmers lose their yields while they also go after the cattle and kill them.  These two situations have been responsible for the various loss of lives during crises among the two groups.

  1. Ms Rwang-Pam should tell Solomon Dalung, Jerry Useni, JKN Waku, Paullen Tallen and Tapgun to tell the Hausa/ Fulani invaders to take it easy. Are they not your brothers any more ? By the way, how did you arrive at the statistics you rolled out ? All these so called dubious NGOs (coalitions,centers, Initiatives,Agendas,Committees,etc) must be checked
