Nigeria’s Senate mulls Law for ranching donkeys, protecting them from extinction
Nigeria’s Senators on Tuesday passed for second reading a Bill for a Law to establish the breeding and ranching of donkeys to mitigate the extinction of donkeys in the country.
The bill aims to protect donkeys which are reportedly endangered in the country and seeks to mitigate the extinction of donkeys in the country through the Export Certification Value Chain.
Contributing individually to the debate on the Donkey Bill during plenary, the senators argued that donkeys were extremely important to the nation’s eco-system and must therefore be protected by all means.
After passing the Bill for second reading, the senators referred it to the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development and directed the Committee to report back within two weeks.
