President Buhari Approves Review Of Grazing Reserves In 25 States..

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved recommendations of a committee to review “with dispatch,” 368 grazing sites, across 25 states in the country, “to determine the levels of encroachment.”

The President’s directive followed his approval of the recommendations of a committee chaired by the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.
Among others, the committee had recommended the collection of field data collection on 368 Grazing Reserves across 25 states to assess encroachment and encroachers, stakeholder engagements and sensitization.

The Committee also recommended production of maps and geo-mapping/tagging of sites, analysis of findings and report preparations as well as design appropriate communication on Grazing Reserves and operations.

The number of the Grazing Reserves and States were deduced from considerations of existing security concerns and other pre-existing socio-economic conditions.

The President directed that the assignment be undertaken with dispatch to bring more understanding on the Grazing Reserves, and implementation.

Members of the committee include, 

Governor of Kebbi State and Vice Chairman, National Food Security Council, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, Governor of Ebonyi State and Chairman of NEC Sub-Committee for National Livestock Transformation Plan, David Umahi, Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Sabo Nanono, Minister of Environment, Dr. Mohammad Mahmood Abubakar and Deputy Chief of Staff, Ade Ipaye.

The Technical Sub-Committee consists of representatives from the seven members of the main committee in addition to representatives from Ministry of Justice, Surveyor General of the Federation, National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA) and National Space Research Development Agency (NASRDA).

Among its Terms of Reference, the Committee was to collate from states and confirm the status of all Grazing Reserves, assess the percentage of available land and those with existing encroachment complications for case-by-case resolution in partnership with state governments and the FCT.

The Committee will also make recommendations for gazetting of ungazetted Grazing Reserves and create a data base of National Cattle Herders and ensure that Grazing Reserves are well communicated to all stakeholders.

The inaugural meeting of the Committee was held on May 10, 2021.


  1. Why is these people so concerned about grazing and ruga? Is it part of governance? What are they not telling us? When has private business becomes government priority? What ever they do, we will resist every plans of open grazing and relinquishing of our ancestral lands to people whose only aims is to kill, rape and destroy our farm produce.

    Mr President wants to plung Nigeria into a serious crisis he won't be able to contained.

    We are keenly watching with all seriousness each of their deceptions.

    1. @TeeJay
      "We" will resist?
      How many Guns and tanks and anti aircrafts do you have?
      Tell me in details what and how you will resist

  2. Buhari. Evey of your negative agenda over Nigeria will NEVER come to pass in Jesus name. AMEEEEN.
    Cow is people's personal business. How come it is your priority in this regime. God is bigger than you and your conspirators

  3. What is wrong with this man and his archaic way of thinking, how about you consider ranching as a modern alternative to open grazing Biko nu? this is 2021 for crying out loud. Make this man do come dey go, im matter don tire me

    1. There's a plan. Currently the people of Edo state are kicking against the installation of an Emir in Edo state slated for tomorrow. The plan after the grazing and ruga implementation is to install emirs in all the state. You know what that means? Keep thinking.

  4. This is Buhari's only agenda-fulanization of the country.Open grazing is banned in the south,what other discussion are we having with this man?

  5. Absolute nonsense. A stone cold looser that's what the man represents till his grave.

  6. This is all he can think of......

  7. Whats with Paul (Square) and Anita's marriage?

  8. What Buhari and his cohorts cannot do does not exist

  9. Complaining online or on TV will not change anything. Nigerians keep voting based on tribe and religion and not competence.

    When you voted for an old man with full blown dementia...what did you think will happen???

    A man who surrounds himself with loyalists with no iota of intelligence combined. A man who was tending to cows before becoming president...what else does he have to offer??? Grazing!

    Like everything that has no use will not last and it will not work

  10. It shall not stand in Jesus might name Amen!

  11. Let the owners of the cows’ names be published by any bold journalist. These are businesses and we need to know if any Oba, Igwe or Asiwaju owns cows so we can address this appropriately. Enough of converting things belonging to others to yours. Let some youths begin to circulate the names of cow herd owners then we can pressure the US & Western governments to help us prevent Fulanization and extreme Islamization of Nigeria to avoid the Taliban situation. This is how it starts. I’m I the only one that noticed the resemblance between the Taliban and Fulani Herdsmen in their carriage?
