ADAMAWA TO BAN SALE OF CATTLE TO LAGOS
Adamawa to ban sale of cattle to Lagos, other states
Adamawa State Government has revealed plan to ban the sale and haulage of livestock out of the state to other parts of the nation including Lagos.
The state government explaining why it is considering such measure said it would help to stop revenue leakages and boost internally generated revenues from livestock business where the state has a comparative advantage.
Addressing the media, Bashir Ahmad, the Secretary to the state government, said other states like Lagos are depriving the state of levy collected on cattle.
According to Bashir, instead of taking livestock out of the state, Adamawa would now process and deliver beef to Lagos and other markets across the country.
Speaking, he said, “what we collect as revenue per head of cattle is far lower than what’s been collected along the road to the point of sale.
“People take cattle from Mubi market here, move it to Lagos, along the road they pay nothing less than N5000 per head in like, five revenue collection points.
“By the time they get to Lagos and sell it, another N10,000 per head is paid just for the cow to be slaughtered; while in Adamawa where the cow originated, we’re left with about N300 to N500 revenue per head.
“So we resolved that if this thing originates from us then we should be able to generate substantial revenue just as others are doing.
“As we’ve seen how much revenue is generated outside the state from our cattle, we decided to harness it to improve our economy.
“To achieve that from now, we’ll improve the value-chain of the cattle by moving it from the market to an abattoir within the state, slaughter it, process it by separating the hydes, the bones, the horns and we’ll package the beef for shipment to markets in Lagos and other states.
