TGnews:Stand to be the tripotise (The General) News,articles, Journals, opinion and adverts to millions of people accessing the internet. Serrving the common interest not personal or sectarian or Religion interest that are in conflict with the national goals and aspirations of building a united ,peaceful and progressive Nigeria and the World at Large.

On plans by the Adamawa state Government to have earmarked 15,000 hectares of Land and the registration of over 1.5 millions livestock for the purpose of grazing reserve in the state.

The state’s chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) issued a communique to our reporter in Yola after a meeting held at the St.Andrew Catholic Church Mubi South 29th June,2016 stating that:

“The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is seriously concerned about the unilateral decision of Government to earmark about 15,000 hectares of land in Adamawa state for the purpose of grazing. The Association considers this proposition as not only wrongheaded but unacceptable by CAN members whose lands constitute a larger chunk of this proposed landmass for so-called grazing reserve in Adamawa state”.

After it’s much consultations the Association is suggesting for the development of cattle ranches by the herdsmen as a solution to intractable problems of farmers-herdsmen clashes.

The communique also reads that in as much as Government has made tremendous efforts on rebuilding some Police stations and schools destroyed by Boko Haram,a comesarating efforts should be made in rebuilding of 410 burnt churches and people’s properties destroyed in the affected Local Government Areas.

Calling on the Government to deeply investigate the killings of hundreds of people in Koh community with a view to bringing the perpetrators to book for their dastardly and cowardly acts of Inhumanity.

  1. CAN has no business on Issue1; that is on the land reservation for grazing. As an association it does not own land of the state. Under our traditional land tenure system, land is owned by the community and not association. It is the community whose land may be taken that should raise this issue, not CAN.

    On Issue 2; that’s rebuilding destroyed Churches, CAN is right on point.

    So let’s be careful in raising up social issues lest we create more problems than solve them.
