1 good thing abt the on-going controversy over #RUGAMania in #Nigeria is it has brought attention back to what cn be done to address the herder-farmer crises. Since ystrday, a few more ppl have askd me abt the National Livestock Transformation Plan #NLTP. Here's a little more....
The #NLTP process began in 2016 led by @AuduOgbeh's Fed Ministry of Agriculture & with support from the Vice-President, @ProfOsinbajo, who chairs the National Economic Council (NEC). The NEC, in turn, includes all state governors in its members.
The struture & process was inclusive. Consultations took place at state & zonal levels, culminating in a national conference 11-15 Sept 2017 in Abuja with over 770 participants. The National Conference adopted a report which was transmitted to @AuduOgbeh in December 2017

Happening Now: @GovStitt is a giving his first State of the State address as Oklahoma’s 28th governor
After thanking guests, Stitt starts by echoing a campaign talking point saying “ My vision for Oklahoma is very clear and simple: to make Oklahoma top ten.” #okleg
Gov. Stitt lists three steps to make Oklahoma “top ten.”
1.Select people for “critical” leadership roles (a reference to his desire for gov to fire/hire top agency heads)
2.Set measurable goals.
3.Hold ourselves responsible for delivering results

Now, there are some minimum sentancing on drug offenses that need to be lifted. Let's just remember, they weren't instituted due to racism... It was the community out cries in the 80's. People demanded crack downs on crack for example. Let's not forget that.
When you hear about those egregious cases where the offender is given probation. It's occurrences like that giving rise to mandatory minimum sentancing. #justSaying
Do the strategies of the 80's and the war on drugs need to be revisited? I'd say so, doesn't seem too effective...
... Justice for the victims in the community was the motivating factor, not this "systemic racism" the history revisionists insist on today.
Just think about that, "systemic racism" and the logistics behind that if it were true.

THREAD: On a night that produced a divided Congress (Democratic House, Republican Senate), voters on #CriminalJustice-related ballot questions across the country bucked the status quo.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the #ElectionResults2018. 1/
▪️Via @voxdotcom: In Florida, a ballot initiative restored voting rights to more than a million people with felony convictions, undoing one of the most restrictive felony disenfranchisement schemes in the country. 2/…
▪️Via @washingtonpost: Voters in most—but not all—states where pot was on the ballot voted to liberalize its use.

Michigan became the tenth state to legalize recreational marijuana. 3/…

#PrisonReform is not an abstract issue for me -- it's personal. I believe in justice and dignity for all. I believe that the solutions live in the lives of those most impacted.

That is why, I stand in solidarity with all of the inmates taking part in the national #PrisonStrike.
The disparities in the system are not new. They are not secret.

- 2.3 million people sit in US prisons and jails.
- 60% of people behind bars have never been convicted of any crime.
- Women are its fastest growing population.

This amounts to $182B in spending each year.
In MA, Black & Latino residents make up 17% of the population but account for a majority of inmates. In the #MA7, black residents are incarcerated at 6 times the rate of white residents. And low-income/minority communities account for a disproportionate # of inmates.
