A statement by Mr Nakorji Mohammed, the Director of Information at the ministry on Friday, quoted Ogbeh as saying that the reconstruction of the grazing reserves had become necessary due to farmers-herders conflicts.

The minister said the reconstruction was also crucial for the Federal Government to reduce the high unemployment rate in the country.

« The grazing reserves will help in solving these problems.

« We are not going to any state that is not interested and we are not going to collect anyone’s land, » the minister assured.

He called on individuals who had the interest and ability to build grazing reserve to do so, adding that the government would support such individual.

Ogbeh called on members of the institute to focus toward addressing the security challenges facing the West African region and Africa in general.

Other participants according to Adeleke were also from Benin Republic, Liberia, Niger and Sierra-Leone consisting of senior officers from the military intelligence and other Federal Government agencies.
