|Farmers Loose Billions Of Naira To Swine Flu In Nigeria by ayEbeneyzer(m): 8:58am On Jun 08, 2020|
Hello guys, it's a very sad time to experience this in Nigeria, but it is really going on. Pig farmers in Nigeria at the Oke-aro pig farm(The Largest Piggery Farm Settlement In Africa) has lost billions of naira to what is called Swine Flu( a respiratory disease). This disease can be passed from pigs to pigs if the affected pig is not quickly isolated from the healthy ones, and the worst thing is that it doesn't have a cure yet, only a vaccine which we don't have in Nigeria. It started early this year and hasn't stopped yet.
Many farmers who thought they would see their profit in time have actually been left with nothing because they don't have any pig again in their pen. Pigs have been dying everyday and farmers have been loosing their lives mostly because they borrowed money to start up there business or it was the only source of their income. Personally, my dad has lost over #2.5 million Naira, which is a lot of money especially with the pandemic (covid-19). I just wish the government could do something for us to stop all this, for example, they can make the vaccines available to farmers by importing them. I can actually say that a government official hasn't been to the farm since the whole issue started and this shouldn't actually happen because this said farm is the biggest in Nigeria.
People have taken to twitter to narrate their ordeal.
