The Governor warned that the bill seeks to deprive Nigerians of their God-given lands in favour of pastoralists across the country.

In a statement issued Monday in Makurdi by his Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Terver Akase, Governor Ortom said he finds it curious that “since 2016, the Presidency has sent the grazing reserves bill to the National Assembly bearing different names, and despite the public outcry, it is not giving up the idea of having the bill passed.”
