The governor’s action indicated that he was unconcerned with President Muhammadu Buhari’s acceptance of a review of 368 grazing locations across the country’s 25 states.
The Governor is expected to sign the bill into law on Tuesday, 31st August, 2021, according to the DAILY POST.
The governor’s action was in line with a resolution passed by the Southern Governors Forum at its most recent meeting on July 5, 2021 in Lagos.
The bill was enacted by the State House of Assembly on July 2, 2021, and it was intended to govern cattle security, rearing, and grazing.
The bill will also ensure the establishment of ranches in the state, as well as the prevention of farm crop destruction and the resolution of conflicts between herders and farmers.
During the state legislature’s adoption of the bill, the Assembly said that it would boost livestock production and foster contemporary animal husbandry techniques in the state, among other things.
