Also, in a reported interview three months ago, Masari made known the intention of the Katsina Government to raise the sum of N12 billion to convert the deadly Rugu forest into ranches with the support of the Federal Ministries of Agriculture and Finance.

According to Governor Masari, the establishment and development of ranches in the state, has the capacity to end the lingering herdsmen and farmers conflicts plaguing various parts of the country.

He equally said the ranching system will give children of herders the opportunity to have qualitative education.
