Miyyeti Allah, Kebbi strategise to end Farmers/Fulani clashes, milk hawking

The kebbi state chairman, Miyyeti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Muhammed Bala Dan Ali has said that, the association is working in partnership with the Kebbi state government to end feud between Farmers and Fulani in the state.

Dan Ali added that after carefully identifying the root causes of the clashes, the association approached the government on how it can come in to assist in the areas that can solve the reoccurring clashes between farmers and fulanis.

He said proper education and facilities are required for the smooth operation in the areas where such incidences occur.

He pointed out that already there are existing nomadic schools in the state, but what the government needs to do is to equip them and build more to accommodate the increasing number of Fulani children.

Speaking further, the Fulani chief said the governor promised to build more nomadic schools and ranches equipped with water and electricity so that herders need not to pass through farms where cattle will eat up crops that usually spark violence.

In addition, the association is worried over the cow milk being hawked by Fulani women who in the process get involved in extra marital relationships in the ministries,

therefore Kebbi state government has step up efforts to establish a milk processing industry to avoid hawking of the milk in the nooks and cronies of Kebbi and to get fresh cow milk not the sour one they hawks. The industry will also create jobs for Fulanis and others, Bala has said.
