He said further that the proposed settlement would assist in boosting socio-economic ventures in the state.

He noted that the settlement was also to discourage the movement of herders from north to south to address herders/farmers crisis.

Ganduje said:

“We will provide social amenities such as hospital, veterinary clinic, market, security post, and schools so that herdsmen will enjoy facilities just like other Nigerians,”

According to him, herders settlement should not be a national issue, it should be a state issue because they live and flourish in every state.
