Governor Obaseki Sends Bill To Ban Open Grazing To Edo Assembly

A bill for a law to prohibit open grazing of cattle and other livestock in the state has been sent to the Edo State House of Assembly (EDHA).
The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, sent the 24 copies bill to the house on Tuesday.

Speaking during the plenary on the bill, the Speaker of the house, Marcus Onobun noted that the bill had been receiving inputs from members and different stakeholders.
He asserted that the bill had been slated for consideration on a later date to give room for more consultation and recommendations by members.
Governor Godwin Obaseki had in October assured that a draft copy of the proposed Edo Anti-Grazing Bill would be sent to the state House of Assembly for legislative consideration before the end of October 2021.
The law which has been passed in some southern states of Nigeria and banned the movement of cattle by herders in public places is a measure of curbing the persistent clashes between herders and farmers.
