What Kind Of Country Is This? This Rubbish Needs To Stop

What Kind Of Country Is This? This Rubbish Needs To Stop

Exactly 42 years ago, The National Institute of Horticultural Research Institute (NIHORT), acquired over 810 Hectares of land, donated to it by three communities, Umulolo, Agbuobu and Umuowa in Okigwe Local Government Area.

The  major reason behind the donation of the limited land resources to the NIHORT by the three communities was to attract infrastructure development to these communities plus the attendant employment that their children will benefit from with the siting of the Institute there.

So far, all the hope of the Community has been dashed. Out of the 25 persons so far employed by the institute, only 2 casual workers were recruited from these three communities (despite the fact that they have ably qualified persons from within).

The institute is currently  occupying just about 1/4 of the huge land mass donated to it, while the remainaing 3/4 utilized land space have been parcelated and taken over by over 100 Fulani herdsmen , erecting all manner of shanties there, without recourse to the host community.

Now the begging question is.., why will the Federal Government of Nigeria acquire the community land without developing it, 42 years after? The only Federal College of Horticultural Studies  in Nigeria is the one situated in Dadin -Kowa, Gombe state.

So, why will the FGN not  utilize this vast land space to convert this abandoned facilities that have been taken over by Fulani Herdsmen into a second Federal College of Horticultural Studies or return the land back to the three host communities?

Who gave out these untilized vast land mass to Fulani Herdsmen to build their shanties and occupy it, when these communities are in search of land for their children to build their homestead?

Thankfully, some youths and elders in these affected communities have written to the Speaker House of Respresentative, through the Honourable member representing Okigwe North for their urgent intervention. I will also enjoin the leadership of these affected communities and Hon Obinna Onwubuariri, to also take up this matter with the Presidency and the relevenat ministries incharge. 

I pray they intervene urgently. It is crass wickedness and injustice to take people's homeland without bringing the needed infrastructure development to them, only to turn around to parcelate and handover their land to strangers.  This rubbish must not continue.
