The visit according to the National co’ordinator of L-PRES, Sanusi Abdulkadir is to have a first hand information through high-level discussion surrounding the government’s steadfast commitment to the successful execution of the L-PRES activities within the state.

The entourage visited Sullubawa village where they inspected a milk collection centre as well as other structures constructed by the federal ministry of agriculture to improve the living standards of pastoralists in the state.

They were also received at the Bauchi meat processing company limited, and saw for themselves the challenges there as well as how to intervene in that direction.
