Fulani herdsmen have listed conditions to be met before in order for them to end open grazing in the country.
Herdsmen under the umbrella of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore said they are willing to quit open grazing if government would make finance and logistics available for them to create alternatives to open grazing.
The herdsmen said thay cannot suddenly quit the age-long practice because there is no alternative way yet to feed their cattle.
Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore brand Ambassador, Temitope Ajayi, made this known alongside officials of the association on a courtesy visit to the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, in Abuja, on Thursday, November 11.
She said: “Women as Mothers are known to be peace makers. Women and Children bear the brunt (effects) of herders/farmers crisis and all forms of battles and wars, they are the engine room of national development and therefore hold the key to the development of cattle breeding.”
- She added there was need to re-orientate and change the mindset and perceptions of the Fulani herders so as to end outdated practices of open grazing.
