FG To Establish Ranches, Grazing Reserves Across The Country


1min read


Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, has reiterated the decision of the federal government to establish ranches and grazing reserves across the country in order to curb the incessant Herdsmen/farmers clashes.

The SGF also claimed that foreign nomads that have migrated into the country are responsible for the crimes being perpetuated on farmlands across the nation.

A statement signed by Bolaji Adebiyi, the director of media in the office of the SGF, quoted Lawal as making the remarks when he received  a delegation of the ‘Tabital Pulako Njode Jam’ Foundation, led by its Chairman, Abdul Bali.

The Foundation, which was set up to look into the series of herdsmen/farmers clashes, said it was convinced that the nomads from other countries are responsible for the senseless killings on the farms and urged the government to strengthen control at Nigeria’s land borders.

Bali said the foundation is ready to partner with government to bring the situation under control.

Lawal assured his visitors that government will do the needful to enlighten Fulani Herdsmen on how to make cattle rearing more profitable by utilizing the ranches and reap other social and political benefits that such settlements will offer.
