Reactions have continued to trail reports that the Enugu state chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, in conjunction with Northern Leaders and Livestock and Perishable Goods Market, have reached an agreement to temporarily shut down the Livestock markets in the state.
The closure which takes effect on Wednesday and Thursday next week, was decided in a meeting between the trio in the state capital, Enugu on Saturday.
This announcement follows recent spate of security challenges in the state.
Reacting, while some Nigerian express delight over the development, other simply consider it unfortunate.

That’s gonna be an excellent idea, at least lives can be saved.

I realised that most that commented on this news did not bother to read the details of the story and would have been circumspect if they did.

This would bring peace and harmony in Enugu.
They took the right step for closing livestock market for just two days to sensitize and screen members. Its a step in the right direction.

We shall see who blinks first. Hope they don’t change this decision. Enugu people don’t need their viral-infested livestock.
