.............Tells Northern govs to revive 400 inactive grazing reserves


By Juliana Agbo, Abuja
The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) says the North cannot afford to ignore the recent unanimous decision of southern governors to place a ban on open grazing in their states.

Responding to the Tuesday Asaba Declaration of the governors, National Secretary of MACBAN, Baba Othman Ngelzarma, said northern governors should rise up to the challenge by working out a solution of their own that will be generally acceptable.

“We can’t ignore the unanimous demand of the entire governments of the south on a particular issue,” Ngelzarma told The Nation yesterday.

“If the southern governors can be in agreement on an aspect, that means it is an issue and deserves to be given serious attention,” he added.

“In a situation where the entire southern populace is synonymous with a particular aspect, I think this aspect deserves to be given attention.

“But the northern governors need to speak with their southern counterparts so that they can come up with a solution that is generally acceptable.”

He said the northern governors should also consider reactivating the over 400 inactive grazing reserves in the north and make them attractive for pastoralists to settle.

He added that the grazing reserves, if reactivated, with the provision of schools, veterinary clinics, hospital services among others, it would give the pastoralists an opportunity to be educated and also stop them from roaming.

His words: “Ranching is a long term issue. Since we have these grazing reserves lying idle, why can’t we reactivate them?

“We as an association believe settlements for the pastoralists will be the only solution that will solve the farmers/herders conflicts in the country.”

The Nation gathered that Nigeria has 415 grazing reserves, but only one third of them are in use.

The Association said the grazing reserves which cover an area of 5 million hectares in the north should be reactivated in the interim before considering ranching which may take a long time and process to complete.

Ngelzarma urged the federal government to design a policy to tackle the problem of farmers/herders conflicts.

He said: “The time of roaming about looking for pasture is almost over, considering the growth in population of the country, challenges of land and climate change. This calls for an effective planning on the part of the federal government.

“Why can’t the northern governors begin to make these areas attractive to the pastoralists? Why can’t they reactivate and make the grazing reserves functional?

“The moment they provide water and pastures in the grazing reserves, this will attract the pastoralists in the south to relocate back to the north.

“It is only when you give them a place to stay that’s when you will have the opportunity to give them education and also provide them with veterinary clinics, hospital services among others, which will stop them from roaming about.

He urged the National Assembly to come up with a legislation that will put an end to the issue.

The governors of the 17 southern states had, in a communiqué at the end of the Asaba meeting, said the incursion of armed herders, criminals and bandits into the southern part of the country has presented a severe security challenge such that citizens are not able to live their normal lives.

They resolved “that open grazing of cattle be banned across Southern Nigeria, noting that development and population growth has put pressure on available land and increased the prospects of conflict between migrating herders and local populations in the South.

“Given this scenario, it becomes imperative to enforce the ban on open grazing in the South (including cattle movement to the South by foot).”

Farmers/herders conflicts have claimed many lives across the country.

Hear this oh terrorist leaders of the North in name name of northern terrorist cattle farmers miyetti Allah.

Northern governor's don't decide for southerners or southern governor's.

The best advice is to tell your terrorist in the South to start packing and leave before the southern legistratives passes it into law because masses will be out to enforce the law.

Southerners can't wait for a Fulani commissioner of police to come and enforce law that will benefit the South, so advice your men to start leaving.

South has been practices cattle ranching for ages, and we don't need your system.

Nothing concern the South on how many acres of land you want to takes from the entire noth, but the truth is that such privilege is not available at southern part.

Instead wiping you people out will be available one day

I am happy about the response and body language of National Secretary of MACBAN, Baba Othman Ngelzarma towards the current economic and social realities facing 'waka waka' cattle rearing in Nigeria.

The truth is that grazing lands hitherto available to farmers and herders in Southern Nigeria have shrunk due to development. So, the ban on open grazing Southern Governirs Forum has nothing to do with discrimination or hatred but merely an inevitable response to realities.

Interestingly, large expanse of lands in the Northern are begging to be used. But the Northern Governors with the exception of Ganduje are just neither responsive nor visionary about the economic opportunities which ranching could bring. This is simply because FAAC allocation is assured. That's the whole essence of the RESTRUCTURING we are clamouring for.

Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) should turn the pressure and heat on Northern Governors to do the needful. They are there to solve problems like this.

1. Leave the south alone.

2. The grazing reserves should be reviewed. Those lands has got owners and villagers farming on them. For the government to grab these lands and give to you fulanis, is impossible, except the reserves in your core north.

These people and sense of entitlement sha.

3. Grazing reserves should be a private business. These guys wants the government to do everything for them.

4. What is wrong if you guys acquire lands in your core north, dig boreholes, import legumes from Brazil, nurture them and start feeding your cows.

5. Dear Middle Belt Governors, it is high time you banned open grazing too.

Don't be as5 lickers. Save your people. Don't be betrayers.

Don't subject your people to hunger. Encourage them to farm.

In reality, some relationships are like this.

Start on a good plane, then when its getting on your neck you want to quit, the other party says no.


What's the problem with these Fulani people exactly??


People who own the land said they don't want you anymore and you are saying you must stay

I said this earlier. These people knows they are foreigners in Nigeria wants to make sure they established an ancestral lands in all state before buhari gets out of power. Nobody will ever allow that. Foreigners they are, foreigners they will forever remain in Nigeria!


South, West and East governors and government may be looters and greedy people but they are not that stupid not to see the hand writing on the wall. No state will try ever give into the demands of these foreigners! Just because we made a mistake allowing their messiah to test presidency!

Let them challenge it in court, if they have the brain power and legal luminary to match the south

Northern States that would back Southern anti open grazing..;

*Kogi State (majority are farmers and miners)

*Benue State (majority are farmers)

*Taraba

*Bornu(majority are farmers, Kanuris hate Fulanis

*Yobe (majority are farmers, and Kanuris)

*Abuja(Gwari people are tired of Fulanis undue dominance in Abuja

These people should rest the matter nah! The govs decision has been taken already and have received support from ethnic nationalists throughout Nigeria, no wailing can change the fact.

In fact, we have moved on. Miyetti Allah have even asked all their herdsmen to return "home". But we know, we have not heard the end of the matter yet because you guys are so pained.
