Ranching is private business, Oyo won’t provide land for ranching – Governor Makinde

Governor Seyi Makinde has stated his administration won’t be giving out lands for ranching. 

The Oyo state Governor said this while making a clarification on his administration’s adoption of the National Livestock Transformation Plan which is already being implemented in Kwara State.

Makinde tweeted; 

“My attention has been drawn to this tweet regarding the implementation of the National Livestock Transformation Plan during the joint security meeting, yesterday. For the avoidance of doubt, when I said we would implement the plan, I didn’t mean a wholesale implementation.

“We will be taking aspects which are beneficial for our state. As I have stated on several occasions, our position in Oyo State is that ranching is a private business and should be carried out as such. Our admin won’t be providing land for free to private investors for ranching.”
