Worried by the abuse of antibiotics in livestock, the Alliance for Sustainable Livestock has embarked on a campaign against antimicrobial resistance, which it said is harmful to humans.

Speaking at the Waff Road Chicken Market in the Kaduna metropolis, the Project Officer, Alliance for Sustainable Livestock, Dr Latifah Abdulkarim, said the campaign was to educate various dealers in livestock on the dangers of antimicrobial resistance.

She said there is also an animal health perspective where the use of antibiotics is abused leading to animals harbouring resistant bacteria in them.

“When we come in contact with produce from these animals like meat, milk and eggs which are not properly processed, those bacteria come in contact with humans.

“So, when you get an infection like typhoid, you will discover that the drug will not work because the bacteria are presently resistant.

“Also, just coming in contact with the faeces of the animal that is used for manure to grow crops consumed by humans, anyone that eats the crops comes in contact with the resistant bacteria. That means from all fronts, we are coming in contact with the bacteria,” she said.
