Ebonyi government did not receive any N6 billion for ranching, has no land space

Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has denied that the state government received any N6 billion for ranching, insisting that Ebonyi state has no land space for ranching.

This was contained in a press statement issued yesterday by Special Assistant to Governor Umahi on Media, Mr. Francis Nweze, explained that “We have received the news making the rounds that Ebonyi State is among the States in the Federation that has received the sum of 6 billion naira each for ranching as attributed to the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, while responding to questions on Channels Television on Wednesday night”

“We wish to clarify that Ebonyi State Government never at any time received any money for ranching in the State and will not receive any money for the same purpose as there is no available land for ranching in the state”.

The document made available to newsmen stated that, “Should any Ebonyian opt to engage in personal ranching, Ebonyians should see such venture as a personal decision of such person who must use his/her land for the purpose”.

“This is because Ebonyi State Government has continued to maintain that there is no land for ranching in the state and it is not about reneging from the decision”, it added.
