Just a day to Easter, miyetti Allah made this decision to shutdown the meat markets nationwide.
One of the leaders of the cattle breeders association in Nigeria, generally known as Miyetti-Allah
, has instructed all their members in Nigeria to shutdown all the meat markets in accordance to the recent demands from them which the Nigerian government has not yet met.
In an interview held with the leader he claims that: “the attention of the federal government has totally been focused on money and corona virus alone, forgetting other important things that matter to the country. This action we want to take is to bring it to their attention. I remember we did the same thing nine years ago and we got what we wanted, that alone goes a long way to prove that meat is very important during festivity period where its demands are usually high.
This time we have decided to shutdown the entire meat markets nationwide, and only then will the Government approve our pending proposals to give us lands in different parts of the country to rear our cattles in order to ensure availability of meat in Nigeria and for the benefit of everyone.
