We won’t Establish Ranches for Herdsmen — Oyo Govt

Oyo State government has announced that it won’t establish ranches for herdsmen to rear cattles in the state.

Speaking with newsmen in Ibadan on Thursday, the Chief Press Secretary to Oyo State governor, Taiwo Adisa affirmed the State Government has no plans to establish a ranch adding that herdsmen in the state were free to apply for land to build ranches for their livestock.

According to him, ranching is a private business and anybody that is interested in it is free to apply for land to build his business just like other entrepreneurs.

He said, “The Oyo State anti-open grazing law sees ranching as a personal business. Herdsmen are free to apply for land for that purpose.”
