In February, Bello in Abuja, officially handed a letter conveying the donation of 15,000 hectares of land to the Federal Government for the latter’s cattle colony programme.

The governor said the people and government of the state were ready for the cattle colony programme in the state.

Speaking during a visit to the Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, Bello said 15,000 hectares of land has been provided; 10,000 in Ajaokuta and 5,000 in Adavi Local Government areas, respectively, both in the central senatorial district of the state.
