Ganduje Asks Herdsmen To Relocate To Kano
“I am inviting herdsmen from all parts of Nigeria to relocate to Kano because we have enough facilities to accommodate them".
The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, said this on Sunday while calling on all Fulani herdsmen in some parts of the country, especially in Benue and Taraba states to relocate to Kano.
Ganduje said Kano State had “vast grazing land” to accommodate herdsmen and their cattle.
The governor stated this during the monitoring of the state’s “free vaccination of over one million cattle and other small animals” at Kadawa Artificial Insemination Centre in the Garum Malam Local Government Area of the state.
The exercise titled, ‘Towards Conservation of Livestock Resource and Animal Protein for Citizens of Kano,’ is part of activities marking the 2017/2018 livestock vaccination programme.
Ganduje, who condemned the “recent killings during the clashes between farmers and herdsmen,” said they were unacceptable.
The governor said the vaccination was initiated to keep animals healthy and improve the economy of the state.
