Feb 18, 2018 – Cattle Owners In Nigeria Should Build Ranches To Curb Fulani Attacks – Methodist Prelate Kanu

Dr Samuel Kanu-Uche, The Prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, today said that the church prefers ranches to be built by individuals, who have ownership of the cattle as a business venture in their host communities.

Kanu-Uche said this at the opening plenary meeting of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) at St. Gabriel Chaplaincy, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, in Abuja.

The theme of the four- day conference is: `Entrepreneurship Awareness: “What the Church Can Do’’.

He noted that Methodist people were not advocating for grazing fields neither were they advocating for cattle colonies for any special group of people but advocating for the equity and justice for all Nigerians.

“We believe that cattle or any other animal breeders must imbibe peaceful co-existence with their host communities.

“They must respect the norms of their hosts. It is expected of them not to violate the principles of peaceful co-existence in Nigeria.

“As a denomination, we want peace to reign in the country,’’ he said.

The prelate urged Christians to come together and pray for God to save the country from any likelihood of religious war, social unrest and political turmoil.

The President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle, called on the Federal Government to tackle the issues of unemployment so that criminal activities would be curbed in the country.

Ayokunle also urged the government to put an end through the security agencies, the menace of the Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen all over Nigeria.

“We will continue calling the attention of the government of our land to mass unemployment, which is increasing criminal activities in our nation.

“We will continue to tell the government to end senseless killings by herdsmen and gunmen in the country.

“We have no any other country that God has put us to prosper than Nigeria. We have resolved to remain undeterred by the grace of God.

“We will continue to give support to the voiceless in our nation. There is no problem that cannot be solved,’’ Ayokunle said.

  1. They don’t have money to build ranches nor feed their cattle yet they want to make money selling fat cows.
    Greed is the problem of most Africans.

  2. Your call for prayer is good but theme should be for peaceful separation because there will be no unity in Nigeria.

    It’s obvious that cattle/cow rearing is Fulani’s business and majority of those rearing them are not the rightful owners,meaning that some and majority belongs to government officials, Buhari with the largest,followed by El-rufai and Sanusi and this is why the cows and their cattle boys are untouchable. The worst part of the situation is they are using it as a cover in their Islamization agenda by importing foreign mercenaries who are killing while the cow destroys peoples crops and plantation.

    The above reason is why (fake) Buhari can never condemn this herdsmen saga out-rightly and call them what and who they are.

  3. They will never be for peace, that is why they dont see why they should build ranches. They want everything free of charge because for them, that is the meanining of being Nigerians and they will go to any lenght to get what they want because they know kow lawlessness reigns in the nation

  4. Let them build ranches in sambisa and up north an dnot in the south.people are into various livestock business,piggery,fisheries etc and cattkke rearer are not superior than them.i still wonder why we are so cool in dealing decisively with those herdsmen.this is ridiculuos
