The Nigerian government has disbursed N24 billion to four states for development of Ranching facilities for Cattle.
Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media, Garba Shehu, stated this on Wednesday night on ‘Politics Today’, a programme on Channels.
It was gathered that Ebonyi, Yobe and Katsina states, as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), have received N6 billion each.
Although he did not disclose when they got the funds, though he said Katsina was the latest to get it. He revealed that eight other states will also receive funds as soon as their applications have been processed.
He said any state that is interested and meets the requirement will get the same grant.
“Yes, Katsina has been given, but Katsina is not the only state that has been given. So far, about N24billion has been disbursed to about four states for ranching and associated activities.”
