“That’s the reason on the Dansoshiya Forest right here in Kano we creating the Ruga system the place we offer water, housing, markets, veterinary clinic and academic system for the kids in order that they will also be having fun with social improvement like some other particular person in Nigeria.
“I used to be as soon as in China and I requested my driver, a Chinese language man, ‘I’ve not seen cows crossing the roads?’ He mentioned ‘no, no, no, the cattle rearers are in a single zone.
“‘Anyone who desires to rear cattle might be in that zone. That’s the reason you can not see the cows right here and there’.
“That’s planning. That’s what we must always have.
“The best crime in migrating from North to South for grazing is lack of schooling for the kids. So far as I’m involved, that’s the best crime; you denying any individual schooling.
