ajimobi - It is equal to Modern day Slavery - Oyo Gov. Ajimobi rejects Cattle Colonies


Governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi has reacted to the Federal government’s directive for cattle Colonies to be created in all states of the country as a means of quelling the violent activities of Fulani Herdsmen.

PoliticsNGR gathered that Ajimobi, who received the Alaafin of Oyo at the state government house on Thursday, rejected the cattle colony directive saying that it was tantamount to modern day slavery. In his words;

“Cattle colony is tantamount to modern slavery because colony is synonymous with colonization. We cannot have that in Oyo State. It is a pointer to the fact that federalism is not working in Nigeria.


“If poultry farmers or owners of piggeries, among others, are not being offered colonies for their own livestock, why should herdsmen be a survival category.

“Our position is to support controlled ranching, under which we will provide land and other basic modern facilities for good cattle business as well as breeding. Those wishing to rear cattle will use the facilities at moderate cost. No more, no less.”
