According to report reaching oyogist.com, the CEO of IPI Group Limited, Adamu Garba, has thrown in his support for the fight against destructive cattle herding in the country as he noted that it doesn’t make any sense for cows to be roaming the streets.
Adamu Garba, noted that cattle herding is meant to be ranched on a land acquires or rented by the cattle rancher while also adding that “by law land can only be used through rent or purchase.”
In his words, Adamu Garba stated; “I believe to reconcile the raging herders crisis to open proper communication where each knows the laws of the land.
“All lands in Nigeria, including forests belongs to some entity, FG, SGs, LGs, companies or individuals.
“Thus no land can be used without proper authorization.
“The problem of the fulani herders is a betrayal from the city fulani’s, who decided, after moving to the cities, acquiring wealth and power, but forget to carry the village brothers along, leaving them in a desperate situation.
“The rich fulanis must come together and get ranching lands.
“Land issue is as old as humanity, no any state power can give land to anyone where the land is being identified with owners for generations, without purchasing or renting.
“The rich fulanis must come together and assist our fellow brothers to get ranching lands or forest for grazing.
“Lack of proper communication to the herders in understanding the law of land use, by being the surrounding communities onboard isn’t good enough.
“It may well be a breeding ground for a circlical conflicts, a very ripe situation for civil war.
“This must be avoided at all cost,” he said.
The message which was well received by many Nigerians, made many Nigerians to heap praises on Adamu Garba, for condemning the actions of his kinsmen despite being a fulani man.
