The collaboration between the Kano State government and the National Biotechnology Agency (NABDA) for the development of grazing areas for herdsmen in the state is all but set to kick-off, this was made known by the state government.
The state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, who had expressed displeasure over the long-lasting herders-farmers clashes recently during a visit to NABDA headquarters in Abuja stated that the collaboration will help the state avert continuous clashes.
His Excellency Governor Abdullahi Ganduje noted that the state will convert one of its forests to a reserve settlement to drive the project and ensure that herdsmen settle in a place to feed their cattle.
In his voice “This will enhance the productivity of these cattle, enabling them to reproduce at a shorter time and frame better and healthier offspring”.
He added that the state has started developing the Bioresource Development Centres (BIODEC) established by the agency (NABDA) to facilitate.
We are building many houses, veterinary clinics, schools, markets among others that will contribute to the social life of Nigerians”.
NABDA was established under the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology to implement policies aimed at promoting, coordinating, and setting research and development priority in biotechnology for the country
