Cattle Colony: Kogi Hands Over 15,000 Hectares Of Land To FG by Ecstasy154(m): 9:29pm On Feb 09, 2018
THE Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello on Friday said the state government had set aside 15,000 hectares of land to implement the cattle colony policy of the Federal government Governor Bello during a visit to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said it was necessary that the State provides the land to accommodate the herdsmen and contribute to ending the frequent clashes between farmers and herders.

The Governor while officially handing over the 15,000 hectares of land through a letter to the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said 5,000 hectares of land was set aside in Adavi local government, while the remaining 10,000 will be located in Ajaokuta local government in the State.

According to him “[I] am here once again visiting this ministry and the Minister in continuation of our effort as a state government to key into the programme of the Ministry in terms of the Cattle Colony otherwise known as the conglomeration of cattle ranches programme of the Federal Government.

“We came here some time ago, indicating our interest and our readiness to participate in this programme. Am here [and] happy to inform the Honourable Minister and the Ministry, that the people of Kogi state have keyed into the programme 100 per cent.

“We are willing and ready to pilot the programme in Kogi State and as such our people has been well sensitised, and educated about what this programme is all about.

“Consequent upon that, we have been able to earmark and secure 15,000 hectares of land to takeoff this particular programme.

“We have 10,000 hectares in Ajaokuta Local Government, and 5,000 hectares in Adavi Local Government, the local community have been well sensitised, and willingly, they are ready to key in. These lands have been secured and as such, am here to convey this message in a written letter to Ministry and we will be waiting for your action.

“We are very confident that this is going to add to the economic well-being of our people, the state and the country at large.

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh while appreciating the Governor, expressed optimism that other states will key in.

He reiterated that the federal government had no plans of seizing peoples land to give to the herdsmen. He added that the local communities will also participate in the programme.

There is no greater sycophant who seek the President's favour than the governor of Kogi State.

*He declared a public holiday when the president returned to the country from London where he went to treat himself when even Katsina state where the president came from and the federal government the President heads didn't.
*He was one of the governors who went to tell the President to contest for second term while Benue was burying over seventy victims of Fulani killings.
*He is now giving his state out to cattles so that cattles can colonise Kogi people.

Well,so much for a young governor. Yahaya Bello,una well done.

I hope that should be his father's land or his own personal land. And if that is not from his community I sincerely pray the community should fight for their land now that the'll have supporters than latter.

Those Local Governments Areas are in Afonja land of Kogi State.

Chaiiiii, this change is not the type Afonja people expected oooo when they conspired against Jonathan (SS/SE).

congratulations fool, you just played your generation. both Adavi and Ajaokuta are Ebira land. and are kogi central.

Yoruba side of kogi are Mopa-muro, kabba, ijumu, yagba east and west and a little bit of lokoja.

So bruh in a bid to insult others, don't come and disgrace your ancestry.

Oh God

When people shout youth youth youth. I remind them of Bello! Youth is not enough! We need sound people with "Good Track Record" subjecting them to deep debates and campaigns.

Buhari did not need him to win in 2015. Why does he keep supporting this man desperately??

Middle belt people are senseless. Core northern state has not announced cattle colony but some mumu in the middle region are declaring.

The youths will make Nigeria great so they say. Yahaya Bello is a youth and his tenure as kogi governor has been miserable.
Apparently the youths won't make any +ve difference to the rotten system of this poo hole
