Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has stated that open grazing must not be allowed to continue in the country.
He stated that this act is not productive while speaking at the annual conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Ibadan, Oyo state, on Monday.
“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.”
