Fulani herdsmen: Fayose blows hot, vows not to give Ekiti land for cattle colonies
Fayose declared that his state will not surrender its lands for the proposed cattle colonies as a panacea to Fulani herdsmen and farmers’ crisis.
The governor’s stance was contained in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
He said, “We don’t give ponds to fish farmers; government does not give pens to poultry farmers, and does not give shops to traders because they are all businessmen.
“A cattle breeder should get a cattle ranch because he is a businessman. We will not surrender our land for any cattle colony.”
