Ranching is the answer to herdsmen/farmers conflict,but fgn should lead the way /Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has called on the Federal Government to support and collaborate with states to adopt ranching as the lawfully recognized method of rearing livestock in the country to end frequent crises between herdsmen and farmers.

Governor Ortom made the appeal yesterday at the NKST Church Gbem, Vandeikya Local Government Area of the state during a thanksgiving service to mark the retirement of the Chief Judge of Benue State, Justice Iorhemen Hwande.

He stated that “the best solution to incessant clashes between herdsmen and farmers which often results to the loss of lives and property is through ranching.”

While commending Benue people for their peaceful disposition and support to the enactment and implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law, the Governor charged them to always report breaches of the law to security agents.
