Despite the Bill on Cattle Grazing discarded by Edo State House of Assembly, the question agitating the minds of Edo people and residents is how the alleged dastardly acts perpetrated by herdsmen can be curtailed in the state.
Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, Doctor Justin Okonoboh said members of the Edo State House of Assembly will go back to the drawing board and liaise with all interested parties including the executive on the way forward.
Commenting on the issue of an acceptable bill on the issue of grazing and curbing alleged atrocities of herdsmen in the state, some stakeholders who include the ASUU Chairman, UNIBEN, Professor Julius Iyasele and an Environmental Activist, Barrister Chima said the Edo State House of Assembly should come up with a bill to proscribe open grazing and encourage individual ownership of ranches.
They advised the legislators to also liaise with other states like Benue, Taraba and Ekiti with existing laws.
Chairman NBA, Benin branch, Barrister Ede Asenoguan thinks otherwise stressing that the bill should meet the expectation of Edo people.
Edo people are watching to see how the alleged nefarious activities of herdsmen in the state are curtailed once and for all.
