Why Obaseki Has Not Signed the Anti Open Grazing Bill.

Recently, many states in Southern Nigeria has been passing the anti open grazing bill. States like Lagos, Rivers, Ondo, Osun, Oyo, Ekiti, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom, Enugu and Abia and just recently Delta and Ogun States also passed the anti open grazing bill into law. But why has Governor Obaseki's Edo State not pass the bill into law?

This question becomes germane especially when one considers the fact is also one of the Southern Nigeria states where herdsmen and bandits have wrecked untold havocs. Again other that share borders with Edo State like Delta and Ondo have passed the bill into law but why is Edo State yet to pass theirs?

Well, the answer is not far fetched. Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki of Edo State was reelected for a second term in office last year and as at now the governor is still busy setting up his cabinet for his second tenure in office.

In addition, it is the state House of Assembly that should initiate the bill and once the bill scales through the process of law making it will be presented to the governor for assent. Normally, a bill must pass through other five process before it is presented to the head of executive for assent: first reading, second reading, Committee stage, report stage and third reading.

It should be said here that it's not Obaseki's fault that the bill has not been signed the anti open grazing bill into law. It's rather the Edo State Assembly that has not presented the anti grazing bill to Governor Obaseki for assent.
