el-Rufai attacks nomadic herdsmen, signs MOU with Diary Company


Kaduna Governor Nasir el-Rufai has hit out at herdsmen pasturing cattle from place to place.

el-Rufai’s veiled vitriol was contained in his speech while signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a Denmark company, Arla Foods International, on behalf of the state.

The governor said nomadic herders were doing themselves a disservice economically adding that it was better to ranch and engage in mass production of milk for commercial purposes.

“We want to show that it is possible for a livestock production to be a business rather than a culture or habit or lifestyle but something that can empower and enrich our herdsmen and women,” he said.
