Ranches: FG to use own land as states resist



The Federal Government has decided to use some of its own land in various parts of the country for the establishment of ranches in order to put an end to clashes between herders and farmers across the nation.

It was learnt that the Federal Government’s decision was prompted by the continued delay of state governments in providing land for ranches.

The PUNCH correspondent gathered that the Federal Government would use its land as well as some identified grazing reserves for the establishment of ranches.

On July 14, 2018, it was exclusively reported by Saturday PUNCH that with the refusal of some state governors to give land for ranching, the Federal Government had decided to reactivate and convert about 177 out of the 415 grazing reserves across the country to ranches.
