Kano State Commissioner for Lands, Alhaji Adamu Aliyu Kibiya, has declared the government’s commitment to addressing the persistent conflicts between farmers and herders across all 44 local government areas of the state.
Speaking at a press briefing in Kano, Commissioner Kibiya highlighted one of the main factors fueling these conflicts as the encroachment of reserved grazing lands by individuals, leading to tensions between farmers and herders.
In response to this challenge, Commissioner Kibiya assured the public that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf’s administration remains determined to reclaim the encroached grazing lands.
“The primary objective is to provide sufficient space for herders to graze their animals and ensure their sustenance” he said.
The commissioner emphasized the state government’s unwavering commitment to finding a lasting solution to the farmers-herders conflicts that have disrupted peace and stability in various communities across Kano State.
