Cattle ranching: Gov. Masari confirms receipt of N6.2bn from Federal govt

0
The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, has confirmed that the state has received N6.25 billion from the Federal government for ‘ranch development projects’.

The project is intended to check clashes between farmers and herders which have snowballed into banditry in states across Nigeria’s North-west and North-central regions.

Premium times reports that Gov. Masari confirmed the reception of the fund while delivering a lecture on governance, security and sustainable development in Africa, at the National Institute of Security Studies, in Abuja, on Monday.

“Distinguished participants, let me confirm to you that the N6.25 billion promised to Katsina State government by President Muhammadu Buhari for the Ranch Development Project is now in the state government account,” Masari said.

He added that states initiated the project and approached the Federal Government for help.

The governor said the project involves the construction of feeder roads, slaughterhouses, solar-powered boreholes and police stations on ranches.

Mr Masari said it also includes rehabilitation of existing infrastructure such as dams, schools, dispensaries, veterinary clinics, stock routes and pasture development.

According to the governor, phase one of the project will cover about 7000 hectares of grazing land out of the 122,000 hectares at the Rugu forest.
