President Buhari has approved the sum of N6. 25 billion for the establishment of ranching in Katsina state.
The disclosure was contained in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu in Abuja last night.
Speaking at the commissioning of Zobe Regional Water scheme, which was completed after 29 years of commencement in 1992, the Governor appreciated President Buhari for consistently driving people oriented development projects, with the release of N5 billion to the state to start the ranches.
He said, “Mr. President has graciously approved the sum of N6.25 billion for ranch development purposes in Katsina State. Part out of this amount, N5 billion is already in the account of the state government and within few weeks you will see advertisements calling for interested companies and consultants that will participate in construction.”
