Details of Osinbajo’s meeting with governors

The National Economic Council (NEC) says the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) is not meant for cows alone but to address all challenges of animal husbandry in the country.

Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi State disclosed this while briefing State House correspondents after the NEC meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said the NTLP was meant to address farmers/herders crisis, NAN reports.

“As the chairman of the sub-committee of NEC on herders/farmers clashes, the NEC was briefed.

“The chairman of NEC reminded NEC that the committee was to address the farmers/herders crisis.

“The committee presented the NLTP (2019-2028) today; the plan is not only targeted at cows but a holistic strategy to address animal husbandry,’’ he said.

Umahi said that the plan had six pillars– conflict resolution, justice and peace, humanitarian relief and early recovery for IDPs, human capital development, cross-cutting issues and economic development.

He said that the committee proposed an implementation guideline to guide the Federal Government and states.

According to him, a N100 billion budget was proposed by the committee to support the project.

The governor said that the Federal Government would contribute 80 per cent in grant to support states, while states would contribute land, project implementation structure, personnel and 20 per cent cost of the project.

He said the council resolved that there was a need to look at the trans-human West African Regional Protocol.

“You cannot allow the movement of cattle without registration and monitoring; council emphasised the need to continue to establish that the Livestock Transformation Plan is a creation of the NEC and state governors.

“ And of course the Ministers of Agriculture and Interior are members of the sub-committee and it is entirely distinct from RUGA.

“NEC adopted the NLTP on Jan. 18, 2019, it is a creation of the NEC in liaison with the Federal Government.

“ States will determine whether or not they are willing to participate; each state in Nigeria is free to determine whether such states is willing to participate.

“The Federal Government did not, and we repeat, did not, impose this plan; participation remains voluntary; what we talk about is NLTP, which is a product of NEC, in liaison with the Federal Government,’’ he said.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
