President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 signed into law a bill to increase the monthly minimum wage from ₦18,000 to ₦30,000, following the strike by the Nigerian Labour Union in late 2018. A couple of years down the road, some states, ever dependent on Abuja for capital, are yet to effect this change while others that affected the increment have stopped due to a lack of funds. ⁣⁣

Going by recent incidents in several Nigerian states, it is clear that so long as herds of cattle are free to roam the country and destroy farmlands, it is only a question of time before the bubble would burst.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Therefore, and as a matter of urgency, ranching must be embraced as the immediate and long-term solution to the farmers-herders conflicts, and all Nigerian governors must agree on ranching as the way forward as is being done in places such as the Netherlands, a country slightly larger in size than Benue State but which is the food basket of Europe and the second-largest exporter of food in the world.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So what is Nigeria’s excuse?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ At The Guardian, we say it is time to embrace ranching and put an end, once and for all, to open cattle grazing across Nigeria🇳🇬. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What about you? Let’s have your opinion in the comments section.⁣⁣
