The Governor of Anambra State Willie Obiano has signed the anti-open grazing bill into law.
Obiano assented to the Cattle and Other Livestock Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Bill of Anambra State on Friday at the Governor’s Lodge in Awka.
He now joins joining other southern states governors who had banned open grazing.
The governor said the law will hopefully enable entrenchment of peace.
He also directed the law enforcement agencies to enforce the law with immediate effect.
“Now that we have a law banning open grazing, the law enforcement agents have been directed to implement it,” Obiano said.
