Gov. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state has appealed to the State House of Assembly to enact laws for the creation of cattle routes across the state.
The appeal was contained in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Muazu Dakingari, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Friday.
“We appeal to the House of Assembly to enact laws for the creation of cattle routes across the state,” he said.
The statement also quoted the governor as saying that the state government had secured a loan of N1.5 billion to boost activities of herdsmen and fishermen in the state.
“Out of the N1.5 billion secured, N900 million will be used to uplift the living condition of Fulani communities while N600 million will be used for fishermen, all through economic empowerment as well as to boost the economy of the state,” it added.
Bagudu said his administration would continue to give priority attention to the provision of water, education as well as agriculture and livestock production in the state.
“We urge farmers and herdsmen to continue to sustain the prevailing tranquility as well as safeguard harmony and avoid taking laws into their hands as authorities will not relent in taking appropriate action for complaints by any aggrieved member of the society,” he said.
