Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, says the Federal government is putting up mercenaries to begin Paddock development in Nigeria. Paddock development is the growing of special grasses for cattle. Speaking at a news conference in Abuja today, Ogbeh said the special grasses when exported, would earn Nigeria some foreign exchange.

According to him, Saudi Arabia government is already making inquires about the special grasses that will be grown in Nigeria. Ogbeh said that the Ministry of Agriculture has started bringing the special seeds of grass (fodder seeds) into the country.
“Saudi Arabia is asking that if Nigeria can grow enough grass, they will buy to feed their cows” he said
He assured that paddock development in Nigeria would effectively help address the clash between farmers and herdsmen in the country.
“The clash between farmers and herdsmen has been getting worse by the years and by the grace of God I will bring it to an end. No farmer in the world would like to plant his crops and arrive to see that cows have eaten everything up” he said
