Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has advised the Federal Government against the planned establishment of cattle colonies across the country, describing the move as modern slavery.

Ajimobi made his position known on establishment of cattle colonies when the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi led some prominent traditional rulers to the Government House in Ibadan.

The governor advocated true federalism adding that the proposed establishment of cattle colonies in states is against the spirit of true federalism that vested ownership and control of land on states.

“Cattle colony is tantamount to modern slavery, because colony is synonymous with colonisation. We cannot have that in Oyo State. It is a pointer to the fact that federalism is not working in Nigeria.

“If poultry farmers or owners of piggeries, among others, are not being offered colonies for their own livestock, why should herdsmen be a survival category,” he said.
