Nigerians Consider Avoiding Beef over Miyetti Allah’s Proposed N2m Price Per Cow

Recently, economic hardship has led many middle-class Nigerians to improvise when choosing their food, especially meat, which is becoming increasingly expensive in local slaughterhouses.

To make matters worse, the Miyetti Allah Association has raised concerns that passing the proposed anti-grazing law in the southern states will increase the price of Cows.

In clear terms, the shepherds’ organization has announced that a cow can be sold for up to N 2 million if the bill is signed.

But as they are, Nigerians are often prepared to accept the worst-case scenario and have therefore started to think about ways other than beef.

Most who think of beef now because of the perceived Boycott prices, talked about their survival strategies online such as buying chicken, snails, fish, goat meat, shrimp and pork.

In fact, some believe it is in this case will be a blessing as ancient times people lived much longer because they avoided beef.

Others believe that most of those who sell the cows are not them for can buy so much, adding that within the next two months the same cattle sellers will be begging to give the animals at lower prices.

Read the following reactions:

At Olaitan R it’s time to live healthy.

Nwabuzor says that cow meat is bad

Prince Orebote says they beg after 2 months be.

Fr Peace of mind says red meat is bad.
