Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has urged states in the southern part of the country to queue behind the federal government’s decision to introduce grazing reserves as part of measures to tackle the frequent clashes between herdsmen and some communities in the country.
Speaking in Aba, when he visited Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State yesterday, Tambuwal explained that introduction of the new grazing policy, especially in Northern states, is a logical idea since it will restrict the movement of herdsmen to designated areas, away from farmlands and communities.
Recent clashes between farming communities and herdsmen in some parts of the country over land for grazing has resulted in hundreds of deaths, destruction of farmlands and property.
The federal government’s decision to introduce grazing reserves in states across the federation has been greeted with suspicion with some governors out rightly rejecting the idea.
The Sokoto governor, who was in Aba to flag off road projects executed by the Abia state government, said as a Fulani man with herds of cattle, he restricted them (cattle) to a particular location so that he can monitor what they eat and constantly check on their well-being in general.
“I also know the quality of meat, milk and skin they produce after I take good care of them. So allowing them to roam about in far flung areas in search of grass and water is inimical to their health and the health of the herdsmen taking care of them”, Mr. Tambuwal said.
The governor, therefore, said all Nigerians should support the federal government to get a lasting solution to the challenge.
On the roads flagged-off, Tambuwal praised Gov. Ikpeazu for managing available funds judiciously and for completing the roads.
According to him, the roads would help to alleviate the plight of the people, and urged the people to continue to support the administration to deliver more dividends of democracy to them.
The roads commissioned include Ehere, Umuojima road (renamed after the former Deputy Governor, Chima Nwafor), as well as the Umuocham-Umule-Umuehilegbu roads.
