Nasir El-Rufai Speaks on Anti-Open Grazing Law Passed by Southern Governors

Nasir El-Rufai Speaks on Anti-Open Grazing Law Passed by Southern Governors (Updated: Wednesday, 22nd September 2021, 11:44 PM)


The anti-open grazing law passed by southern governors will not work, according to Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

El-Rufai said the law is not implementable.

He spoke on Tuesday, September 21, after a visit to the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.

He condemned the politicisation of the subject, adding that the anti-open grazing law is not the solution to the ongoing farmer/herder clashes.

 

He explained that the solution is ranching but added that it cannot be done overnight.

 

He said: "Northern States Governors Forum has already taken a position that open grazing is not a sustainable way of livestock production. And we must move towards ranching.

 

"But moving towards ranching cannot be done overnight. We have to plan, we have to have resources and we have to implement it sensibly. It is not a matter of populist legislation or saying tomorrow this or that. It is not a solution.

 

"What is unhelpful is the politicizing of the situation and pass legislation that you know that you cannot implement."

 

He added that Kaduna State would require at least N114 billion to put together 14 ranches to fully settle herders and their families.
