Gov Obiano signs anti-grazing bill into law

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has signed the bill to prohibit and abolish open and nomadic cattle and other livestock grazing and rearing in Anambra State.

The bill also called for the establishment of cattle and other livestock ranches as a means of preventing frequent clashes between herders and farmers.

The governor signed the bill into law in a brief ceremony, which was performed at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, on Friday.

While signing the bill into law, Obiano appreciated the state House of Assembly for expeditiously passing the bill, saying that the establishment of the law will hopefully enable entrenchment of peace.

He said: “Now that we have a law banning open grazing, the law enforcement agents have been directed to implement it.”

The brief ceremony was witnessed by the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barrister Uju Nworgu; Secretary to the State Government, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu; Commissioner for Police, Mr. Echeng Echeng; Commissioner for Agriculture, Chief Nnamdi Onukwuba, members of the Hausa community, among others.
