Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, says there should be a law banning the movement of cattle from the North to the South.
Speaking to newsmen after he and All Progressives Congress (APC) governors met with President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Ganduje said if the movement of cattle is not stopped, there will be no end to farmer-herder conflicts.
The governor said his administration is already constructing a settlement for herders in a forest near Kano’s border with Katsina. He said the settlement will have houses, a dam, an artificial insemination centre, and a veterinary clinic.
Recall that former senator representing Kaduna-Central, Shehu Sani, had also called for the setting up of grazing reserves in the North to end the farmer-herder crisis.
