Election: I’ll Create Ranger For Fulani Herdsmen — Niger APC Gov Candidate

Mohammed Umar Bago, an All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for governor in Niger State, has pledged to establish the “Niger Ranger” to guard the state’s forests.

Bago stated that the ranger would be given to the Fulani herdsmen, who would be outfitted and trained for the purpose of protecting the forests, as part of his strategy to prevent the state’s growing insecurity.

“We are talking to the Fulani; most of the security issues we are talking about are around the Fulani people, their cattle are being rustled/

“We want to create a Niger Ranger, a ranger to protect our forests and leave it in the hands of these Fulani, equip them and give them necessary training,” Bago said on Channels Televisions Politics Today on Thursday.

He said the state agrarian potential would be explored to feed the state, Nigeria and the world.
