'Some People Are Selling Spare Parts All Over Nigeria And Nobody Is Restricting Them' -According to Adamu AlieroSpeaking on the creation of ranches for herders, Senator Adamu Aliero, a representative for Kebbi Central, claimed that states such as Abia state had the authority to reject to grant property to herders for the purpose of ranching.He explained that land management falls under the jurisdiction of state governors and so it impedes any federal initiatives aimed at developing ranching at the state level. He also recounted the significant resistance from state governors when the topic of land acquisition for ranching arose. He highlighted how governors collectively opposed the idea of ceding land to the Federal Government for ranching purposes.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

He said in an interview with Arise TV, ”How do you even establish ranching without having land? Land is totally under the control of the governors, except here in the Federal Capital Territory where the Federal Government has the exclusive right.

When there was so much controversy about where to get land, the governors were totally opposed to it, they were saying that they would never give land to the Federal Government to establish ranching. The then governor of Kano state pledged that he was willing to give up to 1000 hectares of land in Kano for the federal government to go and establish ranching. But the Federal Government never turned up. The whole thing just died like that.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
