FG To Provide Insurance Cover For Ranch Operators - Audu Ogbeh by Mophasa(m): 1:28pm On Sep 13
The Federal Government on Tuesday said it would provide insurance cover and agro-rangers for ranch operators to curb cases of cattle rustling as well as clashes between farmers and herdsmen.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said this in Abuja at a national conference on the transformation of the livestock industry.

Osinbajo, who was represented at the event by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, explained that 3,000 agro-rangers had been adequately trained to protect animals and livestock from rustlers.

He lamented the high rate of cattle lost to rustling across the country.

The vice president stated, “For those who want to go into ranching, here is the good news; we have heard how many of you have lost money, 300 cows in one night to rustling.

“We have now put together a new security group called the agro-rangers. These rangers are being trained by the Ministry of Interior, they are heavily armed. Three thousand of them are being trained.

“If you start a ranch or you have a big agricultural project, approach us, we will post them to you at no cost to protect your investment.”

Osinbajo added, “We do not want you to go into ranching only to hear one night that all your cattle were taken. We intend to give you insurance cover because we consider this industry as serious.

“We need prosperity in that sector because we know that if it thrives, a great deal of good will be done to our country.”

He noted that agriculture was not only a government affair, but also a private sector business.

The vice president added that the country had about 19 million cows, noting that the number was less when compared to other countries.

He lamented that the livestock sector had been neglected over the years, adding that growing grasses was a way of managing the sector.

Osinbajo stated, “At the end of this conference, we will take the recommendations and seriously begin to implement them. We are talking with the World Bank and the African Development Bank to see how they can help us. There is no way ranches will survive without grasses.

“We want this fight between farmers and herdsmen to stop and it must stop.”

In his comments at the event, the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, said the state government was in the process of setting up ranches to develop the livestock sector.

Ortom, who was represented by his deputy, Mr. Benson Abounu, said that ranching was necessary to improve the quality of beef and livestock production in the country.

Nigeria is in deep poo,I swear!

Instead of the government to establish a security outfit whose main objective would be to curtail the excesses of these herdsmen and their cattle, the government is busy PROTECTING the investment of those THREATENING the lives of the citizens and their investments.... What kind of a twisted mentality is that?

When young people peddle LIES they are insulting their pedigree. The scheme is to encourage ranching which a lot of critics have suggested but even that one the low IQ inferior LIEpods will distort
Buhari should just let the herdsmen roam. The victims are to dumb too cowardly and too paranoid to even recognize the solution to their problem

And they call this one of Nigeria's most intelligent tribes. smh

Why is it that what VP said is already unsettling you guys even before your supposed rivals arrive to the thread?

A ranch is for animal husbandry.

So who are they really protecting with these Agro ranger deployments?

What plans do they have in place for farmers who have so far been the worse hit in all the circle of violence and destruction of means of livelihood, from herdsmen who do not have ranches?

Next will be that importation of exotic fodder fron Brazil for the cattle.


Indeed, there was a country!

Now it obvious that Fulani herdsmen are an arm of the Area Consultative Forum.
Why is the Federal Government always meting out preferential treatment to the Fulanis?
Fellow Niger Deltans, this rubbish cannot continue.
We must act now or our lands will become Fulani enclaves in the nearest future.
We have to cut off Nigeria's means of financing this ignoble project.

Phase 1 of #OperationZero should be activated now!!!!!!!!

The Federal government of Nigeria said it has formed a new security outfit to protect investment in agricultural sector including cattle.

Railway project to daura, helipad in daura, new modern schools in daura, agric projects in daura, everything to daura BUT NOTHING HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO IJEBULAND IN GENERAL AND IKENNE IN PARTICULAR.....sooner than you expect your waste tenure will expire and you come back to shout marginalization.......is better you use the last drop of blood in your vein to fight for FEDERAL UNIVERSITY in Ijebuland or IKENNE in honur of PA Awolowo you are benefitting from his legacy. FOOL-LYNCHED Professor.........na only grammar we dey hear, Akowe ko wura........pls help me list national things that have gone to daura before the anfaani-adugbo INSURE THE COWS AND THE HERDSMEN. Professor Yemi Osinbajo you have impressed the nation and failed Ijebu people. Ijebuland suffered more under your government sir.

Buruji Kasham the alleged drug baron senator's positive presence in felt in Ijebuland more than you the so called pastor-VP. We know show much you have enriched yourself and your family as a smart lawyer but having done so much for the nation and the northerners, we your TRIBEMENS are only asking for little and we have opted for A FEDERAL university.

National recruitments are going on secretly and northerners pushing and fixing their children but you continue to speak grammar everywhere. Christians are being killed everyday and herdsmen raping your grandmothers in the farms yet we cant feel your presence at the federal level, check the federal recruitments statistics and you will see how much you have failed the south in general.

The same social media and the internet where you entered Nigerians youths minds is the same channel where the open-minded disappointed youths will use to address your issues......but a smart guy like you may not contest again and go home to enjoy the ever lasting wealth you have acquired. Is very hard for a westerner to see a Yoruba man in federal post to assist them all they will say is big grammar and due protocol abi na process that they never followed when it their children turn. Osinbajo you failed Ijebuland.

You need to take a complete tour of Ijebuland and see whether or where FG have executed any project in at state level Governor Amosun marginalized and sidelined ijebus, surely your eyes will clear by 2018. For your information 80% of Ogun youths and Ijebu youths in particular are jobless and that is why ogun has the highest crime rate in recent time.
