Why we can’t stop foreign herdsmen, by FG

Presidency has explained why it cannot stop herdsmen from the neighboring countries from bringing their cattle into Nigeria for grazing.

Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said Nigeria cannot stop their migration into Nigeria because it was a signatory to the ECOWAS trans-humans protocol of 1998 and ECOWAS protocol of free movement of goods and persons.

The Minister said that was why herdsmen from Niger Republic, Burkina Faso and Mali were being seen with their cattle all over Nigeria.

Ogbeh also said 14 states have so far agreed to provide 5,000 hectares of land each for the proposed grazing reserves, preparatory to the establishment of cattle ranches.
