The governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has said that his administration won’t be giving out lands for ranching.
Governor Makinde said this while making a clarification on his administration’s adoption of the National Livestock Transformation Plan which has already being implemented in Kwara State.
“My attention has been drawn to this tweet regarding the implementation of the National Livestock Transformation Plan during the joint security meeting, yesterday. For the avoidance of doubt, when I said we would implement the plan, I didn’t mean a wholesale implementation.
“We will be taking aspects which are beneficial for our state. As I have stated on several occasions, our position in Oyo State is that ranching is a private business and should be carried out as such. Our admin won’t be providing land for free to private investors for ranching.”
