The Ogun State House of Assembly on Thursday demanded the implementation of the anti-open grazing law.
The Assembly said the implementation of the State Animal Grazing Regulation and Cattle Ranch Establishment Law, 2020, became necessary as the dry season approached.
The Assembly on Thursday said this during a plenary at the legislature chamber in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
The member representing Yewa-North I State Constituency, Adegoke Adeyanju, stressed the need for government and necessary stakeholders to prepare towards curbing the incessant clashes between herders and farmers that often happened during the dry season.
Adeyanju said the call the implementation of the law was to forestall attacks on human and farmlands, which he said often happened in the dry season, especially in the Yewa area of the state.
Reacting, the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, said, “The Special Adviser on Security to the State Governor, Olusola Subaru, and other concerned government officials must set machineries in motion immediately.
Oluomo added that the directive should be channelled towards liaising with all security formations in the State for the strict compliance with all sections of the law.
Also, Speaker Oluomo commended Governor Abiodun for ensuring that the failed portions of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway were being rehabilitated through the application of palliatives.
Oluomo further appealed to the state government to extend its intervention to other parts of the state including Sango-Ijoko-Agbado-Ojodu Abiodun road.
