Kautal Hore Socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah has honored Mother Amina Ajayi (Mama Diaspora) as Brand Ambassador in Karu Local Government, Nasarawa State, Newsonspot reports.
In her acceptance speech following her investiture as Miyetti Allah’s Brand Ambassador at the association’s National headquarters, Mama Diaspora unveiled a robust plan to train Fulani pastoralists on modern ranching, modelled after the US.
She explained that the first set of trainers and teachers for the Miyetti Allah ‘Train-the-trainers’ Cattle Ranch Academy would be traveling to California, USA, in early 2022.
“The primary objective is to expose them to modern and sophisticated techniques in cattle husbandry, dairy abattoir and cattle field grazing.
“Our company, Silicon Valley Nigeria Economic Development (SV-NED Inc) has concluded all arrangements with our partners in California, USA,”
“However, before the end of 2021, my office, under the supervision of the Miyetti Allah National President, will organise a local training programme in Nigeria to screen and recruit the first set of trainers and teachers going to Silicon Valley, California, for the overseas training”, she said.
Mama Diaspora also disclosed that the second element of her plan was to build one million low cost houses for the one million Fulani herdsmen attached to their farm settlement.
She said that her company had partnered with the Federal Mortgage Bank on the housing scheme, adding that the scheme would change the face of cattle breeding business and align it with international best practice.
