When I become governor I will educate herdsmen to ranch their cattle, says a governorship candidate, Comrade Richard Gbawuan, contesting under the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), in Benue state northcentral Nigeria.
Gbawuan said it is true that the people of Benue state do not have land to ranch, adding that an alternative is to develop the existing ranching locations mapped out by previous administrations and educate cattle men on the benefit of ranching their animals.
“If this approach was made, there would have been better understanding”.
The guber candidate stated this on Monday while interacting with Journalists on his campaign promises and strategies to unseat the incumbent governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state.
He said his people need a man like him who is coming to fix the insecurity challenges and economic deficit which governor Ortom has failed to fulfill.
The ZLP governorship hopeful also called for resource control, promising to boost the palm oil produce in his state, aimed at increasing the Internal Generated Revenue (IGR).
