What Gov. Sule has decided to do that is estimable rather than enacting the anti-grazing law.

The anti-grazing bill which has been signed into law by most southern governors has strongly met opposition from most northern governors who see It as the infringement of rights on the herders who have the constitutional right to freely move about in the country. However, it is also stated that no man should trespass the freedom of another man, in a bid to observe his freedom. Hence, it is at this point, after considering the casualties the herders and farmers' clashes have caused, the southern governors decided to ban open grazing in the southern region of the country.

However, still opposing this approach by the southern governors, Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State while granting an interview on channels TV stated his stand on this anti-grazing bill. According to the governor, though the northern governors understand that open-grazing is outdated, they have considered what will happen to the Fulani man if you ask him to leave the state with his herd of cattle due to the enactment of the anti-grazing bill. The governor also confirmed that why his government will not sign the anti-grazing bill into law is because the law has not been productive in States that have signed and enacted the law.Photo Credit: Google

However, the governor stated that his government is working towards providing an estimable alternative against signing the anti-grazing bill. According to Governor Abdullahi Sule, his government has resolved to provide options for the herdsmen, including being the first to adopt the National Livestock Transformation Plan. He also added that Nasarawa state had created six grazing reserves.

These grazing reserves will also avail herders of the opportunity to be introduced to improved methods of livestock rearing. Finally, this move by Governor Abdullahi Sule is quite commendable because there is an alternative option for the herders to also do their business within Nasarawa State.
