Kogi Ready For Speedy Implementation Of RUGA – Bello by Blue3k(m): 6:56pm On Oct 12, 2020
The Kogi state government is ready for the speedy implementation of the Rural Urban Grazing Area (RUGA) programme otherwise called the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLIP).

The state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello made the promise after a-two day training session organised by the National Office of the Livestock Transformation Plan for the state’s Steering Committee (SC) and Project Management Office (PMO).

Governor Bello, in his remark, harped on the economic importance of the project while pledging his government’s readiness to begin implementation with the assurance of giving necessary support to the state project office in actualising the objectives of the project.

State coordinator of the project, Dr. Olufemi Bolarin revealed that the capacity of the state livestock transformation officers had been built to turn the objectives of the project into success.

According to him, the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) is a project designed by the federal government with focus on modernising livestock production in the country as well as put to rest, incidences of farmers, herders’ clashes.

He also explained that the training would prepare the state livestock transformation officers for the task of delivering on the job, stressing that they had been equipped with the knowledge on the modern means of livestock management.

“We are still practicing livestock the way it was 100 years ago. Other countries have long embraced ranching systems. It is sad that Nigeria is lagging behind countries like Kenya, Ethiopia, even Sudan in modern livestock farming”, he said.

On the benefits of the project to the state, Dr. Bolarin maintained that it would settle the prevailing mistrust between the herders, farmers and the communities that often arises from competition for water and land.

Free grazing range by herders, he pointed out, would be made impossible, as model ranches provided with basic social facilities, would be set up to make life easier for those involved in livestock business across the state.

The project, he said, would also empower those in the rural communities to go into livestock production or embrace fodder crop production like soya beans as well as cultivation of grasses which would be processed into pellets as feeds for animals, and this he emphasised, would translate into huge economic benefits for the farmers.


Alternate chairman of the state steering committee, Hon Asiwaju Idris Asiru, expressed the commitment of the state government to the success of the project.

Asiwaju, who is also the state Commissioner for Finance, Budget and Economic Planning, noted that the project would open up myriads of opportunities for the state and its people, besides taking care of herders and farmers clashes.

as liker wasted governor

God will punish that cow we have a president, He is only interested in the welfare of the fulanis thereby forcing ruga on us.

The fg are using money as a bait to make state govs accept the nonsense. Cattle rearing is a personal business why is the dullard using our common wealth only on Fulani miscreants...... It has finish, all this useless good for nothing southern governors don sell us for there personal gain.


Why will a government establish communities for particular tribe, if they have nothing hiding, is it forbidden for fulani peoples to leave in the mix of human being? Just like like my brothers from the east, west, s- south and other tribes that will go to north and settle in the mix of human being, why can't they give there own ancestral land to other tribes that settled in there mix.

How primitive, others could have took on the challenge but they didn't in mass. The only thing I want to know is how much are the ranchers going to pay to use these facilities. They said multiple times they wont own the land. Nigeria should just take beef off the import ban list if they want cheaper prices.

Ps: Does anyone know if Nigerias milk import ban spurred production of milk worked been successful?

There are a lot of things Nigeria should never be importing. Whether or not it has been successful on the short term should not negate the fact that it was an excellent policy.

We all complain about the price of rice, should government give scarce forex to importers of rice, and other products to which we have comparative advantage and capacity to produce if investment is done.

The kind of things Nigerian pseudo-economists argue for would get laughed at in any sane clime.

Why should you never import beef? When did Nigeria produce enough to satisfy demands. An excellent policy is determined by the results. That hasn't been proven with this item others on ban list.

Lol nigeria doesn't have comparative advantage in rice. If Nigeria had comparative advantage it would be a net exporter. Can you name a year when nigeria was a net exporter? The reason nigeria doesn't is because most farming isnt mechanized.

PS: Anyone care to explain why top beef exporting countries also import? Importing beef will benefit the consumers at the end of the day suffering from food inflation.

How much are ranchers going to pay for these facilities? It's already been stared they wont own the land. These seevices shouldn't be provided for free even if they are paying taxes. The good thing about this for kogi is grazing is implicitly banned after this comes into effect.
