FG has disbursed N24bn to 3 States, FCT for ranching – Garba Shehu

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, has disclosed that the Federal Government has disbursed N24billion to three States, namely: Katsina, Yobe and Ebonyi including the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT), for cattle ranching.

This was disclosed by Garba Shehu on Wednesday night, while speaking on a television programme.

Shehu said some of the states given these funds for ranching got theirs before Katsina, Buhari’s State. His statements were made in response to the Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom,
who said President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to review grazing routes is “unconstitutional”.

However, he said more than 12 States are being processed for payments.

“The fact that Katsina got money, one of two of these States got their own before Katsina; but it is because they did not go to town with it, that is why the people are calling out the president and the governor of Benue is saying all these trash against him.

“It’s a process and the state governors are lining up. You present criteria, you get funded. If you want justice for yourself, do justice to other people as well”, he stated.
