Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has condemned the strike and protest by the Miyeti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Taraba State chapter, which led to the total closure of the two major abattoirs in Jalingo and other livestock activities across the state.

Miyeti Allah, Monday, protested to the Taraba State House of Assembly, demanding the withdrawal of an ongoing executive bill sponsored by Governor Darius Ishaku, which intends to prohibit open grazing of livestock in the state.

The association, while protesting in Jalingo, also vowed that if the state Assembly refuses to withdraw the bill, there would be total closure of livestock activities for one week across the state.

Governor Ishaku, who spoke through his Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Sylvanus Giwa, said the protest by the Miyeti Allah, which led to the closure of abattoir and activities of livestock in the state, was condemnable and uncalled for.
