Fulani Herdsmen under the auspices of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore agrees to dump open grazing system for alternative grazing if the government will give them financial and logistic supports.
The Cattle Rearers admitted that open grazing is an old-fashioned practice but said they cannot suddenly change the age-long practice because there was no alternative method on ground to feed their cattles. They promised to leave the Hosts farmlands as soon as Cattle ranches proposed by some government officials, particularly southern state governors, are provided.
Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore brand Ambassador, Temitope Ajayi, made these proposals known when she led some officials of the Association on a courtesy visit to the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, in Abuja, yesterday.
The Miyetti Allah brand Ambassador said the reason for her visit is to secure a partnership with the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs to support her agenda considering the position of women in nation building and development of the society.
She said: “Women as Mothers are known to be peace makers. Women and Children bear the brunt (effects) of herders/farmers crisis and all forms of battles and wars, they are the engine room of national development and therefore hold the key to the development of cattle breeding.”
She also emphasized the need to change the mindset and perceptions of the Fulani herders by proper orientations, as well as farmers and other entities in the country, to modernise cattle rearing and to end the age-long practices of open grazing systems and the troubles associated with such activities, and bring them up to international standards.
