“We have enough facilities”: Governor Ganduje asks Herdsmen to Relocate to Kano



"We have enough facilities" - Ganduje asks Herdsmen to Relocate to Kano - BellaNaija

Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje

Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has asked that herdsmen around the country relocate to his state, Punch reports.

Ganduje, speaking at a free vaccination exercise of 1 million cattle organised by his administration, said his state has enough land for grazing to accommodate herdsmen all around the country.

Ganduje, at the exercise titled “Towards Conservation of Livestock Resource and Animal Protein for Citizens of Kano,” also condemned the herdsmen killings, describing them as unacceptable. He said:

Fulani herdsmen of Kano origin do not move out of Kano to other states because we have enough grazing land, ranches and traditional stock route. They don’t have any reason to move out of the state. We take care of them and we accord them the respect and dignity they deserve.

I am inviting herdsmen from all parts of Nigeria to relocate to Kano because we have enough facilities to accommodate them. We have grazing land in Rogo, Gaya, Kura, Tudun Wada, Ungogo and other places, where facilities have been provided to accommodate the herdsmen and their cattle.

Falgore Game Reserve can take care of millions of herdsmen and their cattle in Nigeria. The location has been designed to accommodate schools, human and animal clinics, markets, recreational centres and other social amenities that would provide the herdsmen enough comfort to take care of their animals and transact their business without any hindrance.

These killings must stop. We cannot afford to continue to witness these senseless killings in the name of Fulani herdsmen and farmers clash over lack of grazing land when we have a place like the Falgore Game Reserve, which is being underutilised.

    Governor Ganduje, it’s Allah that will bless you! Please tell all the muezzin to announce this around the country after the 5-times-per-day prayer announcement. They have poisoned any aota of goodwill they have around the country. Most Southerners, myself included until I stayed in Jos and Abuja, see everybody north of the Confluence as Hausa/Fulani and moslem. Most of us don’t even know that Hausa and Fulani is different. If not that I grew up with neighbors that were moslem and one of my best-friends is moslem from another country I don’t even want to imagine the level of hatred I will have for all of you! Before we devolve into harming all our other brothers that have nothing to do with this make una carry una melu-melu go Kano. I follow use God take beg una. Waka/Bike/Keke/Bus/fly go Kano una hear?! Ngwa bye-bye nu! A word is enough for the wise.

    Only problem is that the killings are not really about grazing spaces but taking people’s lands.

    This is probably one of the most sensible statements to come from a public office holder concerning this matter. Its supposed to be on front page and on all radio stations for weeks.
