The Governor of Kano State, His Excellency, Abdullahi Ganduje has called on all herdsmen scattered around Nigeria to relocate to his state (Kano).
As stated by the governor, Kano state is blessed with so much land that can be sufficient for all grazing activities and also there are enough facilities on ground to accommodate the herders.
The Kano state number 1 man, Abdullahi Ganduje also expressed his anger over the clashes between herders and farmers all over Nigeria; he said the deadly act must stop.
This statement was made on Sunday, during the monitoring of the state’s “free vaccination of over one million cattle and other small animals” at Kadawa Artificial Insemination Centre in the Garum Malam local government area of the state when he called on herdsmen all over Nigeria to relocate to Kano state. He further went on to say that the state has enough land for herders to graze their cattle without any problem; he is willing to accommodate the herdsmen in his state.
Kano state government have been providing facilities that accommodates the herdsmen and their cattle to discourage them from moving to other states in search of grazing land.
According to the Governor-
Fulani herdsmen of Kano origin do not move out of Kano to other states because we have enough grazing land, ranches and traditional stock route. They don’t have any reason to move out of the state. We take care of them and we accord them the respect and dignity they deserve.
“I am inviting herdsmen from all parts of Nigeria to relocate to Kano because we have enough facilities to accommodate them. We have grazing land in Rogo, Gaya, Kura, Tudun Wada, Ungogo and other places, where facilities have been provided to accommodate the herdsmen and their cattle.
“Falgore Game Reserve can take care of millions of herdsmen and their cattle in Nigeria. The location has been designed to accommodate schools, human and animal clinics, markets, recreational centres and other social amenities that would provide the herdsmen enough comfort to take care of their animals and transact their business without any hindrance.
“These killings must stop. We cannot afford to continue to witness these senseless killings in the name of Fulani herdsmen and farmers clash over lack of grazing land when we have a place like the Falgore Game Reserve, which is being underutilized.
