Anti-open grazing: Few Things To Expect As Gov Udom Is Set To Inaugurate A Special Compliance Unit.

During the state executive meeting in Akwa Ibom yesterday, Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel made it known that a special unit will be formed concerning the ban on open grazing.

Remember, the southern governors agreed to put a restriction on the actions of herders in their state, they all decided to put a permanent ban on open grazing in the southeast and southwest respectively.

To this extent, some of the governors have taken bold action towards this. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Dapo Abiodun and many others have signed the bill and many others are following soon.

For the law to be obeyed to the latter, the government of Akwa Ibom State is set to inaugurate a special Compliance team.

Obviously, the government of Akwa Ibom State has a greater expectation that the new unit that is about to be formed will perform well.

Putting a ban on open grazing did not mean that the governors of the southern states were against herders’ business, it is just a way of putting an end to the actions of criminals that hide under the shield of herdsmen.

Governor Mr. Udom Gabriel Emmanuel expectations.

1. To make sure the Fulani herdsmen obey the law to the latter. This simply means, defaulter of this law will be punished.

2. To ensure there is no news about herdsmen and farmers clashing over land: Peace and unity is another thing that every leaders wants and Governor Udom is ready to restore that in Akwa Ibom.

3. Also, through this development, the farmers are expected to cultivate their lands without the fear of animals feeding on their farm produce.

4. This scheme will also help people in Akwa Ibom State to relate freely and report any actions to the affected authorities.

This is more like a challenge to other states that have yet to pass the bills. It is so obvious that Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel is very concerned with his people's welfare, and he is ready to do anything for it.

What will you say about Governor Udom's intention?
