Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari no to impose open grazing of cattle on communities.

The governor who was reacting to the president’s recent approval for the review of 368 grazing reserves across 25 states in the country, also noted that open grazing is not helpful for the Fulani herdsmen themselves.

Tambuwal, stated this, while presenting a paper titled: ‘Security challenges in Nigeria and its implications for sustainable development, at the 63rd birthday celebrations of Richard Akinnola, a journalist and lawyer.

He said “The time has come to come to face the reality of the fact that it is not helpful for the Fulani herdsmen themselves, the cows and communities they are passing through. We should rethink and rework that arrangement,”

“I said that President Muhammadu Buhari should only do his programme of cattle routes or grazing reserves where the people or communities are interested.

“If the government can provide infrastructure and support in locations where these practices are tolerated and understood, it can be done. Why must someone from Sokoto be pursuing his cattle to Delta State?”
