According to him, Rivers state would not participate in any settlement programme for herdsmen, irrespective of the name given to it by the federal government.

“If they want water for the cattle, they can lay pipes from the Bonny Ocean to the far north for their cattle, that is what we can contribute. We don’t have lands for any settlement scheme, our land is for commercial agriculture,” he said.

Governor Wike insisted that no part of the state’s lands can be used for such ventures at any time.
