> PLATEAU RAISES C’TTEE ON GRAZING RESERVES




          The Plateau Government has set up a 14-man team to examine the gains and implications of establishing cattle grazing reserves and ranches in the state. Governor Simon Lalong, at a high-level dialogue on grazing ranches organized by Search for Common Ground, an international NGO, on Wednesday, said that the team’s report
would guide government on the next step. The committee is expected to determine the difference between grazing reserves and ranches, and suggest which would fit more conveniently into the peculiar situation in Plateau. Lalong dismissed the claims that Plateau had already given out land for ranches, declaring that the state had only made a statement of intent. “Plateau has not taken any decision on whether to establish ranches or grazing reserves. Discussions and consultations are still ongoing at various levels and it is the result of such discussions that will coalesce into what Plateau will decide to do,’’ he said. He regretted that all that had been said so far on the issue had been based on “ignorance, deliberate distortions, lies and outright mischief.’’
