Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, on Friday in Abuja officially handed a letter conveying the donation of 15,000 hectares of land to the Federal Government for the latter’s cattle colony programme.

The governor said the people and government of the state were ready for the cattle colony programme in the state.

Speaking during a visit to the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, Governir Bello said 15,000 hectares of land has been provided; 10,000 in Ajaokuta and 5,000 in Adavi Local Government areas, respectively, both in the central senatorial district of the state. The governor said the people of the areas have been fully sensitised and are in agreement with the policy.

Responding, the Minister expressed gratitude to the governor for taking the initiative. He reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to developing a livestock sector where pastoralists and farmers would live peacefully.

He dispelled insinuations that the cattle colony policy was intended to seize people’s land and impose Fulani domination.

Ogbeh also said the ministry would mobilise immediately to work by developing the colonies. (Daily Sun)
