This proactive approach aims to provide timely solutions and alleviate the challenges faced by both farmers and herders.

He spoke during the inauguration of the mechanised agricultural project in Minna, Niger State.

The President called on the state governors to support and facilitate his program by providing lands.

According to Tinubu: “We must reorient our farming population, including livestock programme.

“I don’t see why Nigeria can’t feed all our pupils with one pint of milk a day if the dairy system is well harnessed

“I know what it means as an economic sabotage for cows to eat up the crops and vegetations of our land.

“When we reorient the herders and make provisions for cattle rearing, governors must provide the land and I as the President is committed to giving you, in two to three weeks time, a comprehensive programme that will solve this problem.”
