herdmen

26 Feb 2021
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.⁣⁣
