Farmers To Pay Fee For Protection – Ogbeh by NavierStokes(m): 2:39pm On Jul 21, 2016

The Federal Government is making a security arrangement whereby farmers in the country will pay fees for protection from kidnappers while in their farms.
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, dropped the hint yesterday in Abuja while speaking with State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting.




Ogbe, who was responding to a question on the perennial attacks on farmers by suspected Fulani herdsmen, said he and the Minister of Interior had met and were considering the security situation in the agriculture sector.
He said the government had to use a legitimate instrument of state to stop the abductions because a farmer has no right to buy an AK47 rifle to protect himself.
He also disclosed that a development programme was underway in the Federal Capital Territory to stop cows from being moved around. He said the federal government would not force anyone to provide land for grazing reserves, even as some states were willing to make lands available.
Ogbe also said the government was aware of crises in many families as a result of serious food shortage, adding that the Federal Executive Council had approved a new agriculture road map to address food shortage in the country.
He said The Green Alternative, meant for agricultural operations in the next three years, outlined government’s policies and objectives of seeing agriculture as the next biggest alternative in its drive to diversify the economy.
According to him, the document outlines virtually everything Nigeria needs to do to achieve self-sufficiency in food production and become a major exporter of agricultural products.
The minister said though the nation could not achieve self-sufficiency absolutely in the next one year, it was approaching there.
Also while inaugurating committees for the implementation of an MoU between the federal government and participating state governments and the China-Africa Machinery Corporation (CAMACO) on agricultural mechanisation system, Ogbe lamented the shortage of tractors in Nigeria when compared to farmers’ population and size of farms.
CAMACO is a venture funded by the China-African Development Fund (CADFund) as a strategic partnership built and developed between China and Africa, with the purpose of encouraging and supporting Chinese enterprises to invest in Africa.
Chief Ogbeh said there were fewer than 30,000 tractors in Nigeria but the country should at least as at today, have one million. The partnership with CAMACO is an attempt to catch up with shortfalls in tractors and increase mechanisation to make it easier for agriculture to take place

ladies and gentlemen, The mafia is indeed in power. In this period of recession "non cattle"rearers will pay protection fees while cattle readers will be supplied with free land, imported grass and their ever handy AK 47 rifles.

In my opinion i think the farmers are self centered. Remember these herdsmen are Nigerians and they have the right to live and do their businesses any where in Nigeria. What's the big deal in allocating some portion of their farms for cattle grazing? If they were also rearing cattles, won't they graze them? The herdsmen are majorly the source of beef in the country and since everyone patronizes their meat, why can't we support the grazing bill so they can stop moving their cattles in the cities and instead have grazing fields? If every state creates grazing reserves don't you think it will limit clashes between farmers and herdsmen? I know there are bad eggs amongst the herdsmen but we can't throw away the baby and bath water. There has to be a compromise for the sake of peace.

The farmers should be ready to pay for their protection since they are doing their private business. They are not expected to buy guns to protect themselves. The government will provide security if they are ready to pay. The fulanis are not violent people, let's stop the stigmatization of herdsmen sad

Are you Ok

So killing/destroying other people farms/crops whilst doing their yeye business is sensible to you

As per grazing bill let them create such reserves in their respective states excluding the south.

I am begining to belive that the diversification of the Nigeria economy is simply a lip service and the aim of Nigeria as a nation to feed itself is a mirage with the type of rubbish the government representatives are spewing out of their mouth.
A country complaining of forex and thinking of importing grass from Brazil for the cattle rearer and commissioning 1000 security personells to protect the cattle rearers,while been silent about herdsmen killing farmers and destroying their farmland, with no paliative for farmers to increase their output,rather they want the farmers to pay for security to government.WHAT A SHAME APC.
I believe for a man who took twelve years to prepare to be President and became the President after several trials should be abreast of the problem facing the nation and thus must be armed with cut edge solutions.

There is a very big deal.
The farmers bought their lands, they pay taxes (on the road to Min Of agriculture tax forces that are always on the road and in the market, to market masters). The primary responsibility of government is also to provide security for its citizens and you are asking them to pay So our security agencies are now for rent
If ranching is working in other countries, why wouldn't it work here. It's a private business and should be taken care of privately. If you own a farmland and after your work, someone else come in there to destroy your sweat, you will understand that there's a big deal.
