This is contained in a statement released by Ameen Yassar, the Project Communication Specialist, in charge of the project in the State.

According to Yassar, the KSADP Project Coordinator, Malam Ibrahim Muhammad, said the project is determined to upscale the vaccination because livestock health is tied to the livelihoods of herders and the economy of the state.

“The objective of this interaction is to enhance vaccination and to seek cooperation of all stakeholders so that the exercise succeeds,” he added.

Muhammad said the organization has embarked upon several projects, including the upgrade and equipping of Kadawa Artificial Insemination Centre, construction of milk collection centers, upgrade of cattle markets and crop residue utilization Programme, to improve the livelihood of the herders.

The District Head of Kura, represented by Alhaji Balarabe Muhammad, disclosed that no outbreak of livestock diseases has been reported in the area in the past three years due to consistent vaccination carried out by the KSADP.

He, therefore, directed village heads and herders’ community leaders in his domain to fully mobilize for the forthcoming vaccination in view of its importance.
