» » » » We Reject Cattle Colony - Taraba State Government Insist

Just like Benue state. The government of Taraba state has rejected federal government’s proposed cattle colony as a solution to the incessant herdsmen farmers clash.

The Taraba state commissioner of justice and attorney-general, Yusufu Akirikwen disclosed this on Wednesday.

According to him, the state government has already enacted a law for the establishment of ranches which would come into effect from Jan 24.

“The truth of the matter is that the idea of cattle colony is still not very clear for most Nigerians. "Where would the federal government get land for cattle colonies?

"Would they sit there in Abuja and acquire land across the states of the federation for cattle colonies?“We have enacted a law for ranching here in Taraba, but we are not acquiring land for people, herdsmen and cattle owners are going to buy land and do their ranching business" he said.

He called on the federal government to support the state in implementing the law by providing adequate security as Taraba looks to institute the global best practices when it comes to cattle rearing.
