Bauchi State Governor Declares Support For Ban On Open Grazing Proposed By Southern Governors

 Bala Mohammed, governor of Bauchi state, says he is not opposed to the proposed ban on open grazing in the country.


On May 11, governors in the southern part of the country resolved to ban open grazing and movement of cattle by foot in the region.

Speaking at the annual conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Ibadan, Oyo state, on Monday, Mohammed said though he supports the prohibiting of open grazing, “the baby must not be thrown away with the bath water”.

The governor who noted that he isn’t comfortable with the “ethnic criminalisation” of herders, said the ban must be persuasive, and benefit farmers and cattle rearers.

He also cautioned elites against making inciting statements that can cause crisis in the country.

“We, the elite, must be very careful, not to set up our people that have been living in peace against each other,” NAN quoted him as saying.

“We must guide our utterances as governors, lawyers and every other profession. Disintegration can cause a lot of humanitarian crises that are unimaginable.

“We must come together and dialogue in a manner that will not aggravate the security situation in this country.”

On his part, Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo governor, said open grazing is not productive and must not be allowed to continue.

“The federal government must assist those that want to do ranching and spend the way it was spending money on rice production,” he said.

“The national livestock programme is so important and must be supported by the federal government to save lives.

“Those having these animals should also ranch them.”
