Cross section of farmers gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Malamadori.

One of them, Alhaji Sule Harka said the project would encourage agriculture and livestock production.

Harka, who is also the chairman of one of the farmers groups in the area, said the project would also curb incessant farmer and herdsmen clashes.

“We commend the state government for the establishment of grazing land, cattle routes and wind pumps.

“The projects will encourage productivity and enhance access to safe drinking water for animal and human consumption,” he said.

NAN reports that the Jigawa Government had established modern grazing sites at Kashindila, Chutari, Agayan and Ciromari villages, in a bid to encourage herdsmen to settle down and minimise clashes with farmers.

The grazing lands were equipped with pastures, water points and veterinary centres. (NAN)
