Veterinary practitioners get 60 days deadline to get licensed nationwide
The Veterinary Council of Nigeria has issued a 60-day ultimatum to all unregistered and illegal veterinary premises in Nigeria to register with the various state committees or face the full wrath of the law.
Inaugurating an 11-man Lagos State Veterinary Practice Premises Committee, on Thursday at the Lagos state Ministry of Agriculture, Alausa, Ikeja, the President of the council, Dr Aishatu Baju said that the committee would inspect, register and license veterinary premises in the state.
Baju, who said the committee was saddled with the responsibility of regulating the operations of veterinary premises and practitioners in the state, called on the government to give the committee all the support it needed to deliver on its mandate.
According to her, any veterinary premises that failed to register after 60 days, will be shut down completely, and that the clampdown would be enforced in collaboration with the committee.
