Gov Umahi receives N6bn from FG to open ranches

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has reportedly received N6billion from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to begin cattle ranching in the South-East region.

Umahi is among a slew of governors that received a total N24billion for ranching from the Nigerian government.

This was disclosed in an interview on ChannelsTV Wednesday by presidency’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, adding that the Federal Capital Territory was among the beneficiaries.

He said the four received N6billion each for ranching and other associated purposes.

He, however, did not disclose when they got the funds, though he said Katsina was the latest to get it.

Shehu said eight other states will get theirs soon as their applications are being processed.

Shehu said, “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. Yobe has been given. Ebonyi has been given and FCT has been given. More than eight other states are now being processed for this payment.”

The revelation that Ebonyi got the funds will come as a surprise to many in the South-East as the state and other Southern governors had said they had no land for ranching.
