We sponsored 74 Fulani children to Turkey for cow milk processing studies – Ganduje

Published

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has disclosed that his administration had in the past sponsored about 74 Fulani children to Turkey to study milk processing.

The governor made the disclosure on Saturday during the inauguration of 200 Ruga Housing Settlements for Fulani herders at Dansoshiya village in Kiru Local Government Area of the state.

He added that his administration had constructed four million litres of earth dams for the Fulani cattle breeders who would have no cause to move away in search of water.

According to him, herdsmen are invited from across Nigeria to come to Kano and enjoy the bounties of his government’s new Ruga Settlements.

He noted that the settlement had all the basic infrastructure,  including water, grazing reserves and milk processing factory and markets.

Mr Ganduje expressed concern over the long sufferings of herdsmen whom, according to him, have suffered enough humiliation in Nigeria by way of loss of lives, stealing and rustling of their cattles and others.

Mr Ganduje reminded that a true Fulaniman was not known for violence but because of the alleged humiliation they were usually subjected to, they were being forced to retaliate.

“Today you see a Fulaniman doing robbery, kidnapping and other social vices, therefore the need for a Ruga Settlement for him is highly desirable,” Ganduje said.

He added that the irony of the whole thing was that a gallon of milk was costlier than a gallon of petrol, which clearly showed that an average Fulaniman was not poor, neither was he stupid.

”It further revealed that most of the dangerous weapons carrying herdsmen comes from Mali, Cameroon and other African nations,” he added.

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, the Kano State Secretary of Miyetti Allah, Zubairu Ibrahim, commended the governor for fulfilling his promises on the project.

He assured the governor that they would ensure proper utilisation of the project.
