All govenors within the 17 Southern States of Nigeria should quickly take the next step after their very laudable ban on open grazing.
Embark on huge investment in cattle rearing and breeding in all your local government areas. Every LG should start with 10,000 cows each.
At the age of 2 years, cows begin to breed once in a year. Your farm will multiply quickly with clean and trusted sources of meat, cheese and milk. Have we not watched videos of the criminal herders having sex with their cows? Have we not eaten poison enough?
For how long will you buy the meat that funds the bullets that kill your people? It is a sustainable business because the lifespan of a cow is 18 – 22 years. It means that a cow could live to see the tenure of at least 5 State Governors at 4 years each.
Establish diaries and abattoirs inside all the farms. Commonize and demystify beef and drastically drop the prices of beef, cheese and milk in Nigeria. Then enjoy the employment and the revenue it will generate while your people live in peace and enjoy life yanfu-yanfu. Governance is not a mystery. Wisdom is profitable to direct.
Must we eat beef bred with the blood of our people? It is time to turn our present pain to huge gain.
We are suffering because we abandoned our forests and gave opportunities for invaders to occupy.
When discussing the theory of ‘ungoverned Spaces’ Rabasa wrote that the ”prevalence of ungoverned spaces in contemporary states provides safe havens for treasonable and subversive activities, often orchestrated by organized criminals and extremist groups.”
Why do we allow our forests to be wasting when our people are hungry? Go ahead. The invaders forbid pork meat. Clear vast areas of your forests and turn them into modern piggeries. They will run when they hear the sounds of pigs as they oink and squeal. The pregnancy of a sow (female pig) lasts for 3 months 3 weeks and 3 days.
A sow could deliver at least 10 piglets from each pregnancy and may have 2 litters each year. It means that a piggery with an initial 10,000 sows will multiply to 10,000X10piglets X 2times in a year= 2 million pigs in just one year! What have we been waiting for? Revolution without ammunition is deep!
DO NOT GIVE ONE INCH OF YOUR LAND TO PRIVATE BUSINESS PERSONS WHO PROVOCATIVELY BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR TERRITORY. NEVER NEGOTIATE WITH YOUR LAND!!
No region is a monopolist of cattle breeding. There is nothing like Fulani cow or Calabar dog.
Abi nor be namanama?
