The Northern Governors Forum has said the region is set to start cattle ranching as a means of curbing the incessant herders/farmers crisis in the North and other parts of the country.
Chairman of the forum, Simon Lalong, who made this position known, noted that some states in the region were ready with land but need funds.
Lalong who is the Plateau State Governor added that they have been in support of ranching for quite some time.
The governor admitted that the rising insecurity in the northern region and other parts of the country could be linked to cattle rustling.
Reacting to quit notices issued to Fulani herdsmen in some Southern parts of the nation recently, Lalong said the only way to restore normalcy is to establish ranching across the country.
