THE Governor of Gombe State, Inuwa Yahaya, yesterday told President Muhammadu Buhari to fast-track the implementation of the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP).

The Governor said this is the only way to resolve the problem of accommodation that may arise from the movement of herders back to the north following the ban on open grazing in southern states.

Briefing State House correspondents after meeting with President Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja, the governor stressed the need to develop the Wawa-Zange grazing reserve in the state to ensure accommodation for the large number of herders that are likely to move back to the north.

According to him, “We discussed the issue of Wawa-Zange grazing reserve. I think it is the largest grazing reserve that is gazetted in the whole of Nigeria totalling 144,000 hectares.
