Southern Governors Passed Anti-Open Grazing Laws They Know Cannot Be Implemented - El-Rufai

According to Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, he said that it is difficult to execute the Anti-Open Grazing laws which his counterparts in the Southern part of the country have passed to curb insecurity in the region.

The governor advised them not to deploy too much energy on the laws, saying that it would take time for it to be materialized.

When speaking during a visit to the headquarters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday, El-Rufai disclosed that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has supported his state with N7.5 billion out of the N10 billion requested to build a ranch in the state.

According to him, since there are over 14 grazing reserves in Kaduna State, he would be glad if the Nigerian Government can back his state with N140 billion to develop the grazing reserves in the state.

El-Rufai said that it is needless for the Southern states' governors to politicise grazing rights and pass laws they know cannot be implemented in the state.

What do you think about El-Rufai's comment on the Anti-Open Grazing laws passed recently by the Southern Governors.
