The debate over the control of forests in Nigeria has been decided.

On Thursday in Abuja, the federal government and governors agreed that state governments have statutory jurisdiction over forest reserves.

The resolution was reached at the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

NEC said States will seek federal support for efforts to eradicate forest-based crime.

The council deliberated on how forests should be better managed and secured against criminals and criminality.

The meeting agreed that the National Livestock Transformation Plan is a comprehensive strategy for addressing the farmer-herder conflict.

NLTP was developed by the States in collaboration with the federal government. Governors will seek to commence full implementation.

States governments were encouraged to promote modernization of livestock and council.

NEC called for the strengthening of border controls to discourage cross-border crimes and the effective observation of ECOWAS Transhumance protocols.

Also at the meeting, there was a presentation of the strategy for the realization of President Muhammadu Buhari’s vision to bring 100million Nigerians out of poverty.

The presentation was made by the Presidential Economic Advisory Council (PEAC).

It was resolved that a Technical Committee of NEC be set up with 3 Governors and FG representatives to look at the details and how their concerns could be addressed regarding the implementation of the strategy.

Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Mahmood Yakubu also made a presentation on the need to increase the number of polling units in Nigeria.
