Governor visits Abia state

The Sokoto state Governor also said the policy will stop the frequent clashes between Fulani herdsmen and farmers.

Tambuwal, who commissioned some roads constructed by the Abia state government, called on Governors in the South-East to support the grazing reserve policy of the Federal Government.

Tambuwal said “I am a Fulani man and I have herds of cattle but I restricted my cattle to a particular location because I need to 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.”

He also praised Governor Ikpeazu for making judicious use of the resources of the state.

The Governor also stressed on the importance of establishing grazing reserves for the herdsmen, saying “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.”

The Sokoto State Government donated 1000 hectares of land for the creation of grazing reserves for herdsmen and herds owners.
