Why Edo Is Yet To Sign Anti-Grazing Law -Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has revealed why the state is yet to sign into the law the bill which bans open grazing in the state.

Obaseki on Monday said the issue with the bill is the enforcement of the law.

He, however, stated that the law is not a way of persecuting anyone along religious or ethnic line.

He said, “We are one of the few states that have not signed the the bill into law, and the reason is simple; to sign a law is very simple, it doesn’t make sense to put out a law you cannot enforce.

“The best way of enforcing a law is to bring everybody together to be part of that law. We have a crisis in our country, it is deeply rooted, there are different causes why these are happening, let us go to the root of the causes and resolve it from there.

“The anti-grazing law in my view is to deal with some perception, I just want to tell you that this is not an issue between Christians and Muslims, it is not an issue between North and South, it is not an issue between Edo people and Fulani people.”
