Ex­ist­ing graz­ing re­serves to be re­opened

Daily Trust - - GOLDEN HARVEST -

The Fed­eral Govern­ment says it will re­open the ex­ist­ing graz­ing re­serves to ad­dress farm­er­sh­erds­men clashes across the coun­try.

Chief Audu Og­beh, Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture and Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment, said this while speak­ing to news­men on the achieve­ments of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion in the agri­cul­ture sec­tor in three years.

Og­beh said although some of the 415 gazetted graz­ing re­serves in the coun­try had been en­croached on, there was still about three mil­lion hectares of land avail­able for cat­tle graz­ing re­serves.
