Lai Mohammed Reveals Cause Of Incessant Herdsmen, Farmers Clash

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has blamed the incessant herdsmen/farmers conflict on the scarcity of resources for grazing.
He stated this during the 2018 World Congress of the International Press Institute (IPI) in Abuja, the nation’s capital on Thursday.

He said, “The herdsmen clash with farmers is an issue of resources getting more and more scarce. There is less water, there is less grass. The farmers would not have the kind of land they used to have before so they have to adopt the best practices in Agriculture and modern technology.

“On the part of the herders, they must also adopt modern technology such as ranching. These issues are also cultural, as the economic and cultural. You need to persuade the average herdsmen to go to a ranch.

“For a simple reason, in his (a herdsman) own words, ‘it is not so much about how fat your cow is but how many they are’. A man with 100 herds of cattle is superior in his own mind with a person with 50.

“But it has been proven that a cow on a ranch produces about 10 litres of milk a day while migrating cattle produces about a litre a day.”
