For some months now, many governors in Southern Nigeria have been signing the anti-open grazing bill into law in their respective states. Despite, being also plundered by the marauding Fulani herdsmen, Edo state is yet to consider the bill to ban open grazing talkless of signing the bill into law.
You will recall that governors of Southern Nigerian states had met to reach the agreement that states in Southern Nigeria will no longer accommodate the activities of open grazing.
Consequently, many state governors in Southern Nigeria signed the bill into law, but governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki is yet to sign this bill into law.
Last week the governor had a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock Villa. After the meeting, the governor told newsmen that he had come to source funds from the president to establish ranches in his state.
Unlike Obaseki, the other governors in Southern Nigeria did not seek approval or funds before signing the bill to ban open grazing in their states.
As days turn into weeks, marauding herdsmen are still in the business of unleashing violence on innocent Edo citizens.
This leaves one wondering whether, Governor Obaseki will ever sign the bill to ban the evil activities of herdsmen in Edo State.
