Senate Moves To Create Database For Cows

Published

The senate is considering a bill that will create database for livestocks

The bill for an Act to ‘establish national livestock and management (protection, control and management etc) bureau’ is being sponsored by Bima Enagi (APC, Niger South) and it scaled second reading on Tuesday, April 20.

The legislation is aimed at solving the challenge of animal identification and management by establishing the National Livestock Bureau for the purpose of livestock identification, traceability, registration, cattle rustling control and livestock disease control.

Enagi who stated that Nigeria has been unable to participate in the export of meat and other dietary product due to the absence of a management system said the bill intends to indicate ownership and prevent rustling as well as collate genetic information on animals, and improve the ability to trace animals.

He said:-

“Livestock identification refers to keeping records of individual farm animals or groups of farm animals so that they can be more easily tracked from their birth, through the marketing chain, to the table.”

Supporting the bill, Senator Sabi Abdullahi (Niger North – APC) said passing the bill into law is key to implementing the economic diversification goals of the current government, and solving the herders-farmers crisis.

Senator Kabir Abdullahi Barkiya (Katsina Central – APC) on the other hand said being able to track livestock would significantly reduce cattle rustling, a trend he said is worsening banditry in the northern region.

Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah (Kebbi South – APC) described the bill as ‘one of the best legislation’ introduced in the chamber, especially in view of the lingering insecurity crisis.

When Senator Bashir Ajibola (Osun Central – APC) raised a constitutional point of order as to whether the National Assembly has the power to legislate on the subject matter, it was overruled by Senator Na’Allah and Senate President Ahmad Lawan (Yobe North – APC).

The bill was passed for a second reading and referred to the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development to report back within four weeks. A similar bill was previously passed for a third reading by the Eighth Senate, but was never signed into law.

The suspected killer of Ini Umoren, the fresh graduate who met her death while hunting for job, says he took the lady’s life in self-defence.

Speaking with journalists while he was paraded by the Akwa Ibom Police Command on Friday, Akpan Uduak said he had wanted to have sex with her but she hit her and he returned the favour.

“I asked her whether she could work in a farm where hard drugs were kept; she said she could”.

“I asked her that I would like to have sex with her before she left. She agreed and gave a condition that I would have to use condom, which I did.

“While I removed the condom, she became furious and removed the nearby stabilizer to hit me on the head… While I was bleeding, in order to stop her, I used the stabilizer to hit her. When I hit her, she fell.”

Uduak, who claimed he hit the victim with a pressing iron, also atmitted at a point that five other ladies had suffered a similar fate in his hands, although none died.

In his own account, Uduak’s father claimed he was not aware of his son’s criminal activities until he was invited to Uran Police Station.

“I wasn’t aware, I’m not happy about it,” he said. “I was asked to call him and I called him back. When he arrived, I was allowed to interact with him. He told me he did something wrong and that he was sorry. I blamed him: ‘Why did you do this? You are not my only child; I have two other children and they are women. If anybody does this to your sisters would you be happy?’ He said no.”
