Herdsmen give FG condition to end open grazing

Must read

Fulani herdsmen, under the umbrella of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, have given conditions to be met in order to end open grazing in Nigeria.
The herdsmen said they are willing to quit open grazing if the Nigerian government would make finance and logistics available for them to create alternatives.
Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore’s brand ambassador, Temitope Ajayi, said this alongside officials of the association while on a courtesy visit to the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, in Abuja.
The herdsmen explained that they cannot suddenly quit the age-long practice of open grazing because, according to them, there is no alternative way yet to feed their cattle.
Ajayi added there is need to re-orientate and change the mindset and perceptions of the Fulani herders so as to end outdated practices of open grazing.
The herdsmen vowed to leave the farmlands as soon as ranches that are being proposed by some government officials, particularly southern state governors, are provided.
