Southern K.
started this petition to
Governor Nasiru El-Rufai, Kaduna State.

The ethnic
nationalities in Southern Kaduna, who are the aboriginal people of Chikun,
Lere, Kagarko, Jema’a, Zangon Kataf, Sanga, Kaura, Kauru, Kachia, Kajuru, parts of Kaduna South and Jaba
Local Government Areas, reject totally,
any plan to implement or make any edict or law or whatsoever action that will lead
government to creating or starting or resuscitating any Grazing Reserves in
their homelands. This is after a very serious consideration of the social,
religious, political and security implication on the area both in short and
long term basis. This is because as people from the grassroots, our present relationship
with herdsmen at this time, at best, is suspicious. And we plead that government
takes this as our genuine concern in terms of what looks as slowly improving
relations, not to assist in shattering it.

Our people shall
surely resist Grazing Reserves, especially new ones. We call on the government
of Kaduna state which has been encouraging peace, development and mutual
respect for each group in the state to shelve any of the aforementioned plans
if it really means well for Southern Kaduna. We encourage Kaduna state
government to go ahead with these reserves in the Northern part where there are
also very suitable grazing lands and herdsmen are bound to feel more at home.

We therefore, call on you to sign in support of this petition

Thank you,
- Coalition of Southern Kaduna Indigenous Groups
