AKURE – Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Tuesday signed into law the anti-grazing bill passed by the state house of assembly.
Commissioner for information and orientation, Donald Ojogo said disclosed this in a statement.
He said “the Governor Akeredolu signed the bill into law in his office on Tuesday, August 31, 2021.
“The move is in line with the resolution of the Southern Governors’ Forum at its last meeting in Lagos where September 1st was set as the deadline for Governors in Southern Nigeria to sign the Anti-Open Grazing Bill into law.”
Ojogo said the development was worthwhile and very laudable aimed at stemming needless instances of skirmishes, conflicts as well as infractions on the enviably peaceful disposition of the good people of Ondo State.
