FG Intensifies Ranching In States Again

The Federal Government has restated its appeal to states to cooperate in ensuring that herders embrace ranching in ending the perennial farmers-herdsmen clashes.

During an engagement with some international media houses in London,the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made the appeal.

Lai Mohammed is in London to engage the international media and tink-tank on the progress the administration has made in various endeavours.

Speaking on the outcome of his respective engagements with Reuters, The Economist and Times of London, the minister said issues on security, economy, fighting corruption, and the power sector took the centre stage.

According to Mohammed,the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had been able to find workable solutions to the perennial farmers-herdsmen conflicts worsened by climate change, forest desertification and demographic growth.

All we are asking for is for states to cooperate more with the federal government to ensure that ranching takes place in their states as the National Livestock Transformation Plan is the solution to ranching.

Evidence has shown that in the states where ranching has been put in place,we experience less conflicts than the others,” he said.

Still on security, the minister said the government is leaving no stone unturned to address the challenges and the efforts were yielding results.

The success of our gallant military has resulted in about 51,000 insurgents surrendering between January and March this year alone.

We have also been able to reintegrate about 1600 former fighters who had been able to learn one trade or the other,” he said.
