4 The CVON further disclosed that there were currently only four trained veterinarians in the state’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, adding that the number was grossly inadequate. 
 

5 ”As we speak, we have just four trained veterinarians in the ministry of agriculture in Plateau; and all of them are on the directorate levels. 
 

6 ”This is not a good development for veterinary services.

If states like Bauchi  has over 130 and Kebbi 120 veterinarians under its payroll,  I think Plateau can do better.
 

”So, we urge the state goverment to look in that direction and employ additional hands to ensure healthy animals and humans in the state,” she appealed. 
 

Haib, however,  promised to support the state goverment towards improving veterinary services in the state.
