Gov Okorocha, Wike Reject Cattle Colonies




Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said he will not give any land in Imo State to the Federal Government for a cattle colony. Okorocha also dismissed the speculation that he had adopted the proposed colonies and ceded a part of the state to herders as wicked, unfounded and untrue.

The governor who spoke on Tuesday in Owerri, the state capital, through the state Commissioner for Information, Prof. Nnamdi Obiaraeri, said there was no law, policy, decision, arrangements, to offer any part of Imo State for cattle colony. The governor said, "This information that Imo has has given lands for the proposed cattle colony is wicked, unfounded and untrue, although it represents the typical product of warped thinking of desperate mischief makers via the social media.

"Imo people and members of the public are therefore advised to disregard these baseless and laughable rumours. "It is unfortunate that manufacturing wicked and capricious lies on an hourly basis has become the hallmark or DNA of desperate opposition politicians in our dear state" Also, the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has said the state does not have land for a cattle colony.

Wike, who also declared that his administration would not allow Rivers to be controlled by external forces, insisted that his government would not be drawn into any debate on cattle colonies. The governor, who spoke on Tuesday when he granted audience to D-Source Connect Group at the Government House in Port Harcourt, said, "We will not allow our state to be controlled by external forces; we will not be drawn into debates on cattle colonic. We don't have land for any cattle colony in Rivers State.”
