Kogi West Rejects Establishment Of Cattle Colonies
It is not surprising that the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, will quickly but strangely meet with the Minister of Agriculture in order to make our dear Confluence State as a Pilot State for the proposed Cattle Colonies in the country.
The governor’s latest shenanigans is not surprising in the sense that money is involved. The Federal Government will definitely make funds available to Bello to kick-start the pilot scheme in Kogi State.
Therefore, as a true representative of the people of Kogi West senatorial zone and on behalf of my constituents, we warn in strong terms that our soil, land, water and air cannot be used for cattle colonies.
Let it be clear to all the insensitive people behind the idea that Kogi West will resist the establishment of any cattle colony within our domain politically, spiritually,traditionally and with any means available within the ambit of the law.

Also read the aggressive statement of Senator Dino on the floor of the National Assembly below…
“Mr President you must be bold enough to take bold decision on this matter. I want to end this way, Mr president we do not support killings on any side, I want to say this without fear or favour, that Cattle rearing is a personal business. Mr president, it is a personal business and should be treated as such. A word is enough for the wise!
Mr president, what we demand is not a lackluster approach from the federal government, this issue has been approached with kid’s gloves. Mr president, if this happened in United States of America, the lives of over 70 Americans, Mr president murdered in cold blood including unborn children and women, will President Donald Trump be comfortable in the white house without paying physical visitation to psychologically relief the pain of the people? Mr President, if you speak the truth you will die if you don’t speak the truth you will still die, so is better I speak the truth and die peacefully.
Mr president, federal government and the security agencies are extremely lackadaisical about this issue, I call today Mr president that if we don’t begin to give justice when justice is needed in the Federal Republic of Nigeria be it in Taraba or Benue, be it in Enugu or Ogbomoso, justice from North to South, justice from South to West, if we don’t give that Mr president, we will be inviting the political and insecurity insomnia that we may not be able to curtail”.
