Embrace Anti-Open Rearing and Grazing Law for Peace to Reign, Akintunde Urges Herders, Farmers


By Richard Thomas, Ibadan

A Lawmaker representing Lagelu State Constituency in  Oyo State House of Assembly, Honourable Olajide  Akintunde Emmanuel has  urged  residents in  the state, especially herders and farmers to abide by the Anti Open Rearing and Grazing law passed by the state Assembly in order to make peace reign supreme in the state.

Hon Akintunde fondly addressed as AKT  said the development became necessary in order  to put an end to  problems among herders and farmers in the state

“The law is not aimed at witch haunting  herders, farmers  or some group of people in the state   as presumed by some people, but  it is for the peace and common good of all.”

Hon Akintunde noted that the environment of Oyo was peaceful before the crises between herders and farmers started,  hence the need for the law.

“The law will fish out the bad eggs  among them, I urge  the people to stay calm and allow the law  to work out sanity.”

“I want cattle rearers to make ranch for their cattle because this is the practice in advance countries. The law will take process to mature, but we will continue to educate our people until peace is finally achieved.”

Hon. Akintunde who advised the Fulani herders not to see the law as a means of witch haunting them described  it as environmental friendly just as he admonished everyone to live in peace and harmony.
