Fulani Herdsmen: Nigerians Misunderstood What I Meant By Cattle Colonies – Ogbeh by nwakibie3(m): 10:26am On Jan 15, 2018
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, has explained what he meant by the term ‘cattle colony’ as the only solution to the protracted clash between Fulani herdsmen and farmers.

The minister insisted that cattle colonies being suggested by his ministry remained the only panacea in sight to ending the recurring war.

Ogbeh had on Monday said Federal Government had resolved to establish cattle colonies in a bid to put an end to the persistent Fulani herdsmen, farmers’ crisis across the country.

According to the minister, facilities such as grass and water will be provided to take care of herdsmen and their cattle.

Speaking with DAILY POST yesterday in his Abuja home, Ogbeh said Nigerians had largely misunderstood the concept of cattle colonies thereby, misinterpreting it with sensational reportage in the media as extending Fulani colonialism.

He revealed that the cattle colonies being talked about does not transfer land ownership to Fulanis and was not a new concept since the British had in 1942 proposed same even before Nigeria became an independent nation.

He said this was why the Obudu Cattle Ranch was established, a gesture that made founding fathers like Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello to set up ranches in Akunu and Mokwa and most recently Governor Mimiko in Anuga.

“In biology, you have animal colonies, you have bees, snake colonies and in some places crocodiles. Once there is a large concentration of any species of animals whether artificial or natural you call them colonies.

“A colony is much larger and viable, cheaper and safer because the colonies will have several ranches in them where the government is ready to provide water and feed at subsidized rates for the herds with the view to increasing their yields.

“We have chosen to embark on cattle colonies because we want to supply water to cows, because the grass they eat is not just any kind of grass. Cows are very selective about the grasses they eat, even if they are not, the quality of grass they eat determines the quality of beef and milk you get”

“For the purpose of succeeding in this project, seeds of grasses have been gotten from Argentina, Brasil and the US and domesticated on a large scale”, he said.

Chief Ogbeh further explained that the government was not forcing any State to donate lands for the project but that those who understood the concept were donating lands for the takeoff.

“One third of the cows moving in the bush have Bovine TB and they can transmit same to human beings.

“In Holland one cow in the summer consumes one hundred litres of water per day so when a cow is heading from Maiduguri to Lagos on foot and doesn’t have access to ten litres of water in a week, that’s torture and explains why we have the lowest yield of milk in West Africa.” He added.

All I can say is Buhari assembled a team that is as dumb as himself.
He sent out his messengers to go accross the country to search for a team as dumb as himself.

Listen to this guy. When you are through, go and listen to Akinwunmi Adesina, Jonathan’s minister of Agriculture who is now AfDB chairman. You will understand why Nigeria is undergoing the mess it is in currently.

Fücking möron, if pigs, fish and poultry "colonies" aren't going to be established at the same time and rate with the cattle whatever then forget about it. The herdsmen are business men not rétards, they should negotiate with landlords directly instead of FG supporting their criminality and rewarding them for such again

We've got fools and criminals in high places running the affairs of this country...SMH

Is Fulani cattle business now government owned business?

This fulani agenda is DOA no matter what the jihadists in power does and it will be better they create their colonies up north cos any southern governor that tries such nonsense will have his people to contend with.

Ranching is the only sensible and acceptable way for cattle owners across the globe. And it's high time middle beltans and southerners goes into ranching since the blood thirsty Fulanis aren't ready to follow a sane method of cattle business.

no, the solution is for them to rent ranches, then set bole hole and buy grass. or they go back to the north where they came from. no need to colonize any land. they are pushing gradually down south.

The above shows the man don't even know what he's doing. Referencing Britain doing same during colonialism as a reason we should do the same today? That's exactly how Britain originated most of the problems we're still dealing with today as a nation!.

What a mad man!!.

Hmmm.....oga, the english langueage is full of synonymous words that can be used in place of that crap you spent. It only takes wisdom to apply the right ones at the right time and coming from someone whose home state is under siege and whose brothers are slaughtered like poultry, is most insensitive. At times like these just let your Minister of State talk. You are in no position to support whatever intentions the government has. Remember after this assignment you go home....to what...
