Executive Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola has stated that the state government is unwilling to give the Federal government any land in the state for their proposed ranching project.

According to the Punch, Aregbesola said that the state already had things covered with plans underway to build ranches in each of the three senatorial districts in the state by the state government.

This will be in addition to the ranch that is already located in Oloba community

Aregbesola said through his media aide, Mr. Sola Fasure, that while Osun state welcomed any plans by the Federal government to work with the state and key into the project, they would not be giving the Government any land.

He said; “Osun has its own ranch in Oloba, Iwo and a programme to set up ranches in the three senatorial districts in the state. The Oloba cattle ranch is already functioning by providing cattle ranching and ram-fattening services.

“Plans are in advanced stages to bring the high yielding Boran cattle to Oloba for breeding and crossbreeding with our local breeds. All these have been going on since 2012 as part of the agriculture development programme of the Aregbesola administration and precede the herdsmen/farmers brouhaha.

“If the Federal Government wants to buy into this, it is welcome. The state however is not ceding an inch of its land for any other purpose.”
