Governor disagrees with Buhari over grazing reserve

Amosun said he is not in support of the plan to create grazing reserves across the country.

Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.

Punch reports that Amosun said he is not in support of the plan to create grazing reserves across the country.

The Governor said he preferred a situation where the cattle owners set up ranches by themselves,

He said this while speaking to the leader of the technical committee on herdsmen/farmers clashes set up by the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin.

Amosun also said  “People have suggested a number of solutions. But, for me, I would not support creation of grazing zones. They (cattle herders) should take it as a business, probably building ranches‎ privately. We should not try to solve a problem by creating another one.”

The Ogun Governor called on Nigerians to embrace peace, adding that the committee was set up at the right time.

He also asked the technical committee to find out if the herdsmen are really from other African countries.

Wife of the Ogun State Governor, Mrs Olufunsho Amosunhas revealed that her marriage to Senator Ibikunle Amosun changed her religious faith from a Christian to a Muslim.
