President Muhammadu Buhari and the
state governors have agreed that ranches
should be established to address
incessant farmers/herdsmen clashes
instead of grazing reserves, Governor
Simon Lalong of Plateau, has disclosed.

Mr. Lalong, who made the disclosure on
Sunday in Jos at the dedication of the
new headquarters of Evangelical Church
Winning All, ECWA, said that grazing
reserves would not address the clashes
and the killings.

About 200 people were killed in one of
the recent clashes between herdsmen
and their host communities in Agatu,
Benue State.

“The President and governors agreed
that there would be no grazing areas;
ranches would be established by
government where the cattle would be
kept in one place and fed.

“Government will provide facilities like
medical, schools and other needs in the
ranches,” he said.

Mr. Lalong said that the ranches would
not be for Fulani herdsmen alone but for
whomever rears cattle.

He said that the Buhari administration
inherited myriads of problems, saying
that herdsmen/farmers clashes was just
one of such problems and urged the
people to be patient.

He urged Plateau citizens to pray for the
state and the Federal Government as all
the problems could not be solved in one
year.

Also speaking, the Senator representing
Plateau South, Jeremiah Useni, said that
delegates at the 2014 National
Conference agreed that grazing reserves
should be a state affair, not federal.

He said that it would be difficult for
farmers to support the establishment of
grazing areas as they would not donate
their farms for grazing purposes.

In his sermon, Anthony Farinto, former
ECWA President, called on leaders at all
levels to urgently address the difficulties
Nigerians were going through.

The cleric, who condemned the recent
killing of a military official, urged the
Federal Government to do all within its
power to address the security challenges
facing the country.

“If a serving Colonel could be kidnapped
and killed, it portends serious danger for
the country,” he said.
The Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Bala
Bantex, attended the service.

Amazing thinking....

The last three paragraphs should be deleted for non-relevance to the subject matter.

If the last administration had thought about a workable solution in the first place, we would have progressed beyond this level. Jonathan sef sad

Also, the ranches should have schools for adult education that would help bring them i.e cattle rearers to superior ideology acquired through formal education.

If the herdsmen will use the ranches. It will help control their activities.

Rearing of cattle is a private business,
Any gain made from the selling of your cattle doesn't go to the government, but to someone's pocket,
If you wish to rear, buy a land, and plant grass for your cattle to eat

what about the tax from it?

The function of government is to provide good ground for every business to thrive and avoid cconflict!

we also pay tax and other levies from the garri we process from our farms down here,
And not to forget, we buy our farming land, seeds, fertiliser etc,
And we do not encroach or trespass on other peoples' farmland,
Maybe the government should also create garri ranches equipped with schools and hospitals in the 36 states for cassava farmers too,

How on Earth would a government vote the public money to give undue assistance to certain people who, in their bid to make money, venture into pastoralism?

Government, as a matter of urgency, should provide land for my next mechanised farming. I also need a conducive aquatic facility to venture into a full-scale fishing. This is not just for me alone, but all my Friends who have the same ambitions.



Failure to accede to these proposals means no government should vote a kobo into any cow business.

I am not joking o!

where i come from, we do not lease Farmland from the government,
And we do not involve in a type of farming we can't afford,
If you can't afford a ranch to rear your cattle, why go into cattle rearing in the first place?,
