The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has called on livestock owners in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to take advantage of the ongoing mass vaccination and treatment exercise, for livestock in FCT, and bring their cattle, goats and sheep for vaccination.
Speaking when he flagged off the 2018 FCT mass vaccination and treatment exercise in Gwagwalada-Abuja yesterday, FCT minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, explained that the exercise would enable them breed healthier livestock, that would produce more milk and healthier offspring.
Bello added that the exercise was part of the administration’s effort to ensure food safety and prevent the outbreak and spread of livestock-borne diseases in the territory.

Represented by the secretary, FCTA Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat (ARDS), Hon Stanley Ifeanyichukwu Nzekwe, the minister reiterated the commitment of the administration towards ensuring that only healthy livestock, safe for consumption, are available in FCT markets.
He commended the area councils for their support and assured that the administration was very passionate about the agricultural sector, hence the approval for all the necessary logistics for the success of the exercise, adding that no livestock should be left out in the exercise.
Earlier in his welcome address, the chairman of Gwagwalada area council, Alhaji Mustapha Adamu Danze, had assured that the council would mobilize its agricultural officers to ensure the success of the exercise.
