We can’t Sign Anti-open grazing law if it can’t be Enforced- Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki has said there is no point signing the anti-open grazing Bill into law.

The Edo State Governor said the law has no business being passed since it won’t be duly enforced.

Mr. Obaseki said this on Monday at a stakeholders’ town hall meeting on the proposed anti-open grazing law.

“We are one of the few states that have not signed 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,” argued Mr Obaseki.

Stressing that the crisis was deeply rooted, the governor suggested that “let us go to the root of the causes and resolve it from there.”

He added, “People have said that we have lived a hundred years together in harmony before now. Why are we now having this problem today?”

He is one of the few Southern Governors to be against passing the bill, as Akeredolu, Sanwo-Olu and Ugwuanyi have all signed in their states already.
