The Federal Government on Saturday inaugurated a mini milk collection center in Tassa Village in Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area of Kano state.
Speaking at the event, the Minister of Agriculture, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, said that the center would alleviate the plight of milk sellers and improve their business.
Nanono said that the government would establish additional centers in other states of the federation in order to further improve the economic wellbeing of the people.
“Additional collection centers would be established in Gujungu and Ringim is Jigawa so as to get fresh and hygienic milk,” he said.
He further said that the federal government would establish Fulani settlements in order to settle the herdsmen in one place to eliminate herders/farmers clashes.
He said that the measure would also help to improve the business and economic life of the herders in the area.
The minister called on Fulanis in the state and other parts of the country to leave in peace with farmers and other people in their host communities.
”I recently visited Bauchi and Gombe states on the issue and the government is committed to the project,” he said.
