    The governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, has suggested that there should be a law banning the movement of cattle from the north to the south.

    Ganduje gave the suggestion while speaking with journalists at Daura, Katsina state, were the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors met with President Muhammadu Buhari.

    Governor Ganduje said if the movement of cattle is not stopped, there will be no end to farmer-herder conflicts.

    The governor revealed how his administration is working hard in constructing a settlement for herders in a forest near Kano’s border with Katsina.

    The project he said will have the settlement of houses, a dam, an artificial insemination centre, and a veterinary clinic.

    His words: “We are building a Ruga settlement in Samsosua forest, our border with Katsina and we have succeeded in curtailing the effect of banditry in that area,” Ganduje said.

    “So, we are building many houses, we are constructing a dam; we are establishing a cattle artificial insemination centre, we are establishing a veterinary clinic and already we have started building houses for herdsmen.

    “My advocacy is that we should abolish the transportation or trekking of herdsmen from the northern part of Nigeria to the middle belt and to the southern part of Nigeria.

    “There should be a law that will ban, otherwise we cannot control the conflicts between herdsmen and farmers and cannot control the cattle rustling which is affecting us greatly.”
