Ekiti State Should Be Careful With Proposed Creation Of Ranches – PDP



The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has come out to say that Ekiti state government should engage relevant stakeholders on the planned establishment of ranches under the National Livestock Transformation Plan.

The spokesman for PDP in Ekiti State, Raphael Adeyanju recently revealed this in a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the government should not be in a hurry to create ranches with state resources for people going about their private businesses, because it might not end well.

PDP added that cattle breeding is a private business being undertaken by everyone irrespective of ethnic affinity, so interested herdsmen should establish ranches on their own since open-grazing is no longer relevant in the 21st century.

His words, “The attention of Ekiti Chapter of the PDP has been drawn to the plan of the Fayemi’s government to create ranches for herders in Ekiti State. We can describe this as a welcome development as long as no government fund is expended on a private business.”

“We in the PDP regard cow rearing as lucrative business. Apart the Fulani’s, many indigenes of Ekiti also engage in the business, they should be encouraged to engage in modern ranching.”

“We are however opposed to Fayemi’s attempt to play politics with Ekiti destiny. He has no right to cede any portion of Ekiti to appease some troublesome elements of the society.”
