WE WILL OFFICIALLY GAZETTE ALL GRAZING ROUTES IN THE COUNTRY - COUNCIL OF STATE


The Council of State meeting that was organised by President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived at another decision to resolve the Herdsmen-farmers clashes. The decision was that, grazing routes will be gazetted nationwide.

Besides gazetting the routes, government would also provide resources for special grazing reserves where states would voluntarily make lands available.
Due to the increasing rate of security challenges, clashes between herdsmen and farmers in Nigeria, the Council of State suggested this as the best method.
Out of this meeting, some observations were made:

“On the security situation in the country, we received a very long brief from the National Security Adviser, ranging from farmers/herdsmen clashes, Boko Haram, militancy in the Niger Delta, kidnapping and cattle rustling”.
“In some situations it’s pure banditry. Some of the pastoralists that are not herders, attack, steal and kidnap and that has to be defined as such.
“Some of them rustle cattle and move into the deep forests. And because of the thickness of the forests response are usually very difficult. That was also discussed today and solutions were proffered on how to get deep into the forests, to check those bandits that hide and continue to commit havoc."

“Another observation is the farmers/herdsmen clashes and also the settlers and indigenes clashes like in the Southern Kaduna. Some migrant farmers or herders stay in an environment for a very long time and when you have such clashes, they are also classified as farmers/herdsmen clashes.
“So we understand and acknowledge these three aspects and all have different approaches in solving the whole problem. And from the discussions today, a lot has been done, solutions have been proffered and the government believes solution is near."

“The minister of agriculture also presented a position on how to resolve the first part of the farmers/herdsmen clashes, that is the actual migrating herdsmen that pass through towns and farms, eats up crops in the farms and create a lot of problems.
“He proffered a lot of solutions ranging from those states that have already designated cattle routes, grazing reserves and activating the grazing reserves to ensure the farmers and herdsmen live in harmony”.


The meeting saw the likes of three former Heads of State, General Yakubu Gowon, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and General Abdulsalami Abubakar.  Governors were also in attendance. A resolution was also made to pump in $1 billion dollars into the diversification programme of the country as a means of further reflating the economy.
