Cattle colony: Osinbajo reveals Buhari’s real plans

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, has told Nigerians that there were no plans by the Federal Government to force anyone to give his or her lands for the planned cattle ranch.

Osinbajo said this at a security summit organised by the senate on Thursday.

The Vice President warned that on no account will any land be seized or forcefully taken to create ranches or grazing areas.

He advised Nigerians to disregard all insinuations that the federal government wanted to force cattle ranches on them.

Osinbajo further said that he was in support of the creation of State police.

He said, “For a country our size, to meet the one policeman to 400 persons according to the UN prescribed ratio, we would require almost triple the number of our current police force.

“Far more funding for the military and security agencies is required.

“The nature of our security challenges is complex. Securing Nigeria’s over 900sq/km and its 180 million people requires far more men and materials than we have at the moment.

“It also requires a continual re-engineering of our security architecture and strategies. This has to be a dynamic process.”
