Give Us Grants To Start Ranching, Northern Governors Tell FG
Northern Governors on Tuesday said the Federal Government should provide funding for the establishment of ranches across the region.
The Chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum, Simon Lalong, during an appearance on Channels Television’s News @ 10 said the Governors have been in support of ranching for quite some time.
And, with the rise of banditry – which he said was linked to cattle rustling – and the recent quit notices being bandied across the country, ranching offers the “the only way to control the insecurity,” Mr. Lalong said.
“We were advising the federal government to also give grants to states that are ready with land,” he said.
