Flood: Eighty livestock farmers in Oyo receive palliative care from FG
On Friday, the Federal Government offered consolation to eighty cattle ranchers impacted by the Oyo State flood tragedy in 2022.

The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (FMAFS) at Moore Plantation, Apata, Ibadan, reportedly provided the palliatives to the beneficiaries on behalf of the federal government on Friday, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The beneficiaries, cattle ranchers who were devastated by the floods in 2022, were carefully chosen throughout the state, according to Dr. Florence Kakulu, the FMAFS Coordinator for the state.

Kakulu promised them money, three blocks of salt lick, and three sacks of cotton seed cake for each of them.

She expressed the hope that the farmers' difficulties from the flood calamity will be lessened by her generosity.

The coordinator expressed sympathy to the livestock farmers who lost their hard-earned wealth due to the flood calamity on behalf of Sen. Abubakar Kyari, Minister of Agriculture and Food Security.

According to Kakulu, the minister was aware of the suffering farmers were going through as a result of the flood-related financial losses to their enterprises.

According to her, the ministry made the gift in an effort to lessen the impact of the natural disaster on those who were impacted.

"On our end, we're going to be unwavering in our commitment to working with you to advance maximum production and increase financial success in the livestock sector.

According to her, the gift represents President Bola Tinubu's desire to forward his administration's renewed hope program for the benefit of all Nigerians, but especially farmers. It also represents his immediate, short-term assistance.

According to the coordinator, players in the livestock subsector must take the initiative to mitigate the effects of climate change on a worldwide scale.

Speaking as well, Mr. Ibinade Akeem, the Deputy Director of the FMAFS Department of Animal Husbandry, urged cattle producers to consistently feed their cattle the proper nutrients in order to maintain their health.

Alhaji Salaudeen Moruf, the South-West Coordinator of the Cattle Breeders and Dealers Association, responded by thanking the ministry for the effort.

According to Moruf, the federal government now associates with cattle breeders and dealers and provides assistance to them as needed. Previously, it only recognized farmers who raised crops.

Mr. Olasunkanmi Olaleye, the Oyo State Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, urged farmers to consistently join associations in order to receive government support. Mrs. O. Akinloye represented Olasunkanmi Olaleye in his speech.

Alhaji Raheem Abubakar, the chairman of the Myeti Allah Association for Oyo State, also spoke, pledging the association's commitment to peaceful coexistence in the state and emphasizing that development was impossible without peace.
