Oyo Won’t Provide Land For Ranching – Seyi Makinde

The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has said the state will not provide land for ranching as it believes it is a private business. Makinde said this to clarify a tweet in which he revealed that Oyo State will adopt the National Livestock Transformation Plan which is already being implemented in Kwara State. The Governor, after a meeting with his Kwara State counterpart, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, had said on Twitter, “We also agreed that the National Livestock Transformation Plan which is already being implemented in Kwara State would be implemented in Oyo State leading to further collaborations between both states on economy and security.” His tweet was taken by many to mean an implementation of Rural Grazing Area settlements which many Nigerians had in the past ki...

Man United to Land Lautaro Martinez as Inter Milan fails to Meet Payment for Lukaku

  Manchester United is set to land Lautaro Martinez after Inter Milan failed to meet payment for Romelu Lukaku, according to Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport. Inter Milan has taken several players off Man United’s hands in recent transfer windows, with Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young all making the switch to Antonio Conte’s side. Lukaku was the costliest addition for Inter Milan, setting them back a club-record €80 million. However, after joining Inter almost 18 months ago, the Nerazzurri still seemingly owe Man United €50 million for Lukaku’s deal. When Man United sold the Belgium international to Inter, they included a clause in the contract that said ”if the San Siro club failed to meet any of the deadlines set for payments, then they immediately becom...

Gov. Obaseki Denies Providing Land For Herders In Edo State

1. Our attention has been drawn to misleading and false media reports claiming that @GovernorObaseki has agreed to provide grazing land for herders in the state. 2. Our position on the matter of grazing land is clear and has not shifted, which is that there is no free land for grazing in Edo. Grazing is an economic activity just like poultry and piggery or any other agric enterprise. Govt will not cede any land in the state for grazing. 3. I have continually warned against the politicizing of security issues. Some political actors are trying to instigate the type of killings witnessed in some states in the country just because they are embittered by the heavy loss they suffered in the political space. 4.

Insecurity In Edo: Obaseki Backtracks On Government Providing Land For Herders

Mr Obaseki, in 2019, during the now suspended controversial RUGA programme of the federal government, was among the governors who rejected the idea of the state government providing land for herders to build a settlement and grazing area for their cattle. “We assure Edo people that Governor Obaseki will not cede their rights and land to anybody, as our programmes as a sovereign state do not run on the back of any external entity,” a Government House statement quoted the Edo governor as saying then, in July 2019. “In all the agricultural programmes being executed by the Obaseki administration, the safety, security and prosperity of our people are the top priority and non-negotiable,” the statement added. Mr Obaseki, however, reversed himself on Tuesday, saying Edo State would c...

FUNAM: Fulani Claims Ownership Of Land From Sokoto To The Atlantic

A little known Fulani group that calls itself the Fulani Nationality Movement, (Funam) may have stoked ethnic nationalism in Nigeria with its claims of Fulani ownership of the country and its giving notice of planned conquest of the entire territory. FUNAM, which made a similar provocative statement in 2018, following the Benue massacre by herdsmen, returned to its familiar territory in a statement that further sharpened the ethnic cleavages in Nigeria. While the statement was a reaction to recent killings in Plateau state by armed Fulani herdsmen, its claim of the existence of a Fulani Strike Force that coordinated what it called a retaliatory attack against Birom people in Barkin Ladi, in Plateau state may ignite an arms race by Nigeria’s various ethnic groups.

Check Out Inside The Lagos Slum Where Land Is Allocated At N2k & Residents Live In Dirt

Life at Mosquito village, a slum in Lagos state, is disgusting, brutal, weird, ephemeral, yet entertaining.

That foggy evening, the cloud of filthy smoke enveloped the alley of the sprawling shanties on the swampy piece of land stretching along the shores of a tributary of the Lagos lagoon.
