Jigawa government to demarcate 95 km of grazing reserves and roads for livestock

By Muhammad Nasir Bashir

The Jigawa Farmers and Herders Council has concluded plans to create 95 km of grazing reserves as part of measures to combat the ongoing clashes between farmers and herders in the state.

Malam Zubairu Sulaiman, the council’s public relations officer, told Nigeria‘s News Agency (NAN) in Dutse on Friday that the reserves would be spread across 10 local government areas.

These councils, he said, are Babura, Birninkudu, Gagarawa, Gumel, Gwaram, Buji, Maigatari, Suletankarkar, Kafinhausa and Kirikasamma.

He said the state government released over 7 million Naira for the fiscal year.

Miko called on the leaders of farmers, herders and traditional rulers in the affected areas to cooperate with the council, to ensure a successful implementation of the demarcation.

NAN reports that on January 1, 2008, former Governor Sule Lamido created 400 grazing reserves, 50 of which have already been published in the Gazette.

The effort to establish and demarcate grazing reserves in Jigawa was part of a multidimensional approach taken by Lamido early in the day to address the perennial problem of clashes between herders and farmers.

Likewise, in its efforts to encourage and improve pastoralists, the Jigawa initiated the 2014-2015 animal vaccination exercise in which the government vaccinated 3,438,590 cattle against disease in the last seven and a half years of 2007. to 2014. (NAN)
