The lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial District in the National Assembly said he was not surprise that the Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, will quickly meet with the Minister of Agriculture in order to make the Confluence State a testing ground for the proposed Cattle Colonies in the country.

Dino Melaye who spoke in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday evening noted that the governor’s latest shenanigans was not surprising in the sense that money was involved.

He maintained that the Federal Government will definitely make funds available to Bello to kick-start the pilot scheme in Kogi State.

“Therefore, as a true representative of the people of Kogi West senatorial zone and on behalf of my constituents, we warn in strong terms that our soil, land, water and air cannot be used for cattle colonies.

“Let it be clear to all the insensitive people behind the idea that Kogi West will resist the establishment of any cattle colony within our domain politically, spiritually, traditionally and with any means available within the ambit of the law”, he said.
