In the heat of the entirety of the devise things happening in the country especially in the fervent issue of clashes between Fulani Herders and Farmers across the country. The solution to getting the problems solved has remained a big worry for many Nigerians.
However, despite the overwhelming outcry against the plan to retrace and recover grazing routes across the country, the Federal Government is not showing signs of relenting neither is the president showing intense concern over the issue.
Base on the numerous findings, it has been revealed that stock routes, popularly called grazing routes, are currently being retraced and recovered by the Federal Government for herders to graze their cattle.
The Federal Government said this was meant to address the clashes between herdsmen and farmers.
Although some of the routes are believed to have been encroached upon due to human activities, however, reports found out that the government had embarked on a process of identifying monuments along the routes in order to get them back as locations for cattle grazing.
Contrary to the expectations of many Nigerians particularly in South that the grazing routes retracing and eventual recovery might not see the light of day, officials of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development told one of our correspondents on Friday that the routes’ recovery would go on.
They, however, said it would be done mainly in non-conflict zones.
They also stated that routes that had been encroached upon as a result of the development of public infrastructure might be left out of the recovery exercise.
