Herdsmen killings: PDP warns Nigerian Govt over proposed cattle ranching

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has warned the Federal Government on the need to exercise caution over its plan to establish cattle ranches in some parts of the country.

The party urged the presidency to hold enough consultations, so as not to escalate the same problems it claims to be solving.

According to the party, the situation had already generated discordant tunes and acrimony among major stakeholders, groups and states across the country, particularly relating to issues of funding and land ownership.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement in Abuja on Thursday that the PDP was particularly worried by the lack of adequate consultations by the Federal Government resulting in the disagreements that had trailed the plan, especially along ethnic divides.

He said, “The party calls on the Federal Government to get its acts together and follow all due processes, as stipulated by the laws and 1999 Constitution (as amended) regarding this issue, in order to eliminate the current disagreements being generated.

“The PDP holds that the nation has witnessed enough disagreements, violence and bloodletting, as such all measures must be put in place to avert a fresh crisis.”
