The grazing reserve which is undergoing a comprehensive development plan by the state government is targeted at helping to solve the lingering crisis between crop farmers and herders.

The Minister stated that the Federal Government is interested in working with only states that are willing to key into the livestock development plan and will never take anyone’s land. He added that any state that wishes to participate in the programme is free to do so at any time and the same support would be extended to them.

“A policy framework that discusses all of the issues that cause the conflicts has been developed. If we can resolve these issues that cause the conflicts, then we would solve the problem. The conflict is about resources of land, pastures and water. This is in addition to these resources being limited today by our increasing population growth and desertification that is affecting the availability of land for agriculture”.

“We are only interested in state governments that are ready to be part of the National Livestock Development Plan. Some of them have written to say they have lands for livestock breeding but we are not just going to accept any land, it has to be a land that is gazetted as grazing reserve”.

He reiterate that the Federal Government of Nigeria is interested in working with only states that are willing to be part of the livestock development plan.

“No one’s land will be taken. Any state that changes its mind can always join in and will have government’s full support”. He said.

The Minister while on a guided tour, inspected the veterinary clinic, the pasture pilots, a primary school built for the children of the pastoralists community and one of the nine dams within the grazing reserve amongst others.
