The Nigerian Association of Animal Health and Husbandry Technologists (NAAHHT) has called on the Federal Government to allow the association to have representation in decisions and regulations relating to the practice of animal health in the country.

The Nigerian Association of Animal Health and Husbandry Technologists (NAAHHT) has called on the Federal Government to allow the association to have representation in decisions and regulations relating to the practice of animal health in the country.

The association made this call in a communiqué issued at the end of its 36th annual conference with the theme : ”Animal Health Practice’’ Panacea to Sustainable Food and Health Security in Nigeria,” held in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The communiqué pointed out that the inclusion of NAAHHT representatives where decisions are made in government is very important, as it is not proper that vital decisions relating to the regulation of the profession are made without the involvement of the association’s members.

The association, through the communiqué, appeals to the Federal Government of Nigeria to involve her members as stakeholders in the ministry, agencies, and as members in the board appointments of parastatals under relevant ministries, which will enable members to contribute to the development of the sector.

The association also appealed to both federal and state governments to massively employ animal health technologists into their workforce to ensure successful health inspection of animals and subsequent control of strategies at the production and processing stages to achieve product hygiene.
