Babajide Sanwo-Olu who is the governor of Lagos State has signed the bill which bans open grazing into law. He signed the law to prohibit the trespassing of cattle on people's farm land and also for other intentions. Do recall that the Lagos State house of assembly had earlier passed the governor's assent of the bill into law on the 9th of September.
This bill was passed by the lawmakers after it was supported by the leaders in Lagos State and after receiving public hearings. It was passed after it went through first reading, second reading and third reading in the house. Mr. Mudashiru Obasa who is the assembly speaker said that the bill will help in addressing and providing a long lasting solution to the issue of farmers/herdsmen crisis and will also help in the adequate protection of the south west region. The assembly speaker further said that the bill should immediately start preparing the herdsmen for ranching as soon as possible.
