FG Gives Reason For Cattle Colonies

Posted 1 wk, 1 day ago
The federal government has given explanations for the establishment of cattle colonies as against the nomadic structure currently going on.

The minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said the establishment of the colonies and the land clearing programmes are geared toward increasing milk production and improving the quality of beef.

The minister made the clarifications yesterday when he received a delegation from the Kogi State government, led by governor Yahaya Bello, in Abuja

Ogbeh said: “The establishment of colonies and the land clearing programmes are aimed at increasing milk production by the cattle as well as the improvement in the quality of beef for consumption.

He stated that these programmes were not an attempt to seize people’s lands and hand them over to herdsmen.

“We have to free our country from unnecessary crisis and poverty,” he said.

The minister also promised to offer support to the Kogi State government on its agricultural intervention programmes through the supply of agricultural equipment such as rice harvesters, millers, threshers and tractors.

In a statement to LEADERSHIP Friday signed by Osagie Jacobs Julie for the director of information, the minister commended Kogi State for buying into the agricultural programmes of land clearing, rice revolution and the establishment of cattle colonies being propagated by the federal government.

Earlier, governor Yahaya Bello had commended the efforts of the minister in championing agricultural revolution in the country.

While calling for the support of the federal government, he said  the state aspired to be a model for other states and change the face of Kogi from a civil service state to a productive agrarian state, which will, in the long run, generate employment for its teeming youth.

The minister, along with the permanent secretary of the ministry, Dr Bukar Hassan, received the delegation while the governor was accompanied on the visit by the commissioner for Agriculture, Hon Toba Kehinde, and the special adviser on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Ahmed Okara Abdulrameen.
