Court Affirms Right Of States To Enforce Anti-Open Grazing Law by Grayoso: 8:25am On May 23, 2021
This should be a lesson to Southern leaders and Governors and even followers who must begin holding leaders accountable.


If Governors keep sycophantically accepting the dictates of Northern leaders plus their illiterate and archaic herder groups like Miyetti Allah, instead of acting
to challenge the regressive status quo and protect their people, how will they know what is possible and what can actually be delivered to better the lives of their people and move their respective States forward to the glory of Nigeria?

The judge, in her conclusion below, is clearly chastising State Governors to go and act as they already have the power to do rather than be wasting the time of the court with frivolities.

Southern Governors should stop being cowards and political slaves to begin putting their people first not Buhari or what pleases the President and his regressive cabal consisting the likes of Malami, Pantami etal.

We don't need excuses from Governors anymore. It is clear they are being cowardly and perhaps playing to the gallery because the direction of the Judge is one other legal experts available to Governors could have pointed out.

Governors should enforce the law as they have the legal right to do and damn the FG and executive arm of Governance. Nigeria is bigger than the FG with personnel, like Buhari and Malami, that will come and go.

Court affirms right of states, police to enforce anti-open grazing law

May 20, 2021

 The Federal High Court, Abuja on Thursday affirmed the right of Nigerian states to implement anti-grazing laws in their domains.

This position weakens that of the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, who had said such a ban is unconstitutional and infringes on the rights of movement enshrined in the nation’s laws.

The court indicated this when it rejected a suit seeking to compel President Muhammadu Buhari to direct security agencies to enforce the Benue Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranching Law of 2017.

In her judgment delivered during virtual proceedings, the judge, Ijeoma Ojukwu, held that the court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the suit.
The judge, in the judgement, also said the enforcement of the anti-grazing law having been validly passed by the Benue House of Assembly, for instance, “lies with the state government”.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the judge, in dismissing the suit, said the matter is not justiciable, implying that it is not a matter that a court of law can adjudicate on.

‘It’s matter of misconduct not triable by court’

For her, the matter of the enforcement of the law borders on the issue of non-compliance with the oath of office and misconduct which the National Assembly is empowered to deal with.

“In my view, the courts do not have the jurisdiction to entertain any suit bordering on compliance with the oath of office of the president for the reason that it is not justiciable.

There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth at the fulani headquarters on hearing this news...all their stakeholders including the president will release statements soon... I wonder if cow business is not an individual one, and why those in it can't play by the rules owners of other businesses adhere to.

My guy I wonder oooh. Animal husbandry that has being made a precise science worldwide still has to be practised at the most basic, archaic, disruptive and nuisance level in the biggest black nation on Earth because of Fulanis alone who refuse to change their ways and accept modern practices.

If not for sinister and hidden agendas why not simply modernise practices in a sector that is completely private and driven by profit?

Why must the entire Nigeria accept a status quo of Fulani marching their Cows everywhere on highways, causing chaos, and into private farms to destroy crop yield and threaten the food security of Nigeria?

Why are we all hostages to this madness? Even with this judgement many cowardly Southern governors will still fear upsetting Buhari and 'his people' instead of acting in the best interest of their own people.

Malami is awful. He is directly comparable to only Aondoakaa , another charge and bail lawyer promoted far above his station, as one of the worst AGF ever.

Miyetti Allah already told their herders to disobey the anti-open grazing ban nd graze their cattle wherever they deem fit.

So I'm just looking on to see how the drama unfolds from here.

Lol. She is .

In her judgment delivered during virtual proceedings, the judge, Ijeoma Ojukwu, held that the court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the suit.

For sure Miyetti Allah will reject her ruling. They have already directed their members and herders to disregard the open grazing ban Southern Governors agreed on.

This shows that these lawless people believe they own Nigeria and can subvert her laws simply because their ogas (Buhari, Malami, Pantami etal) are at the top.

Hope Southern Governors will not blink sha. I know Akeredolu won't but can't speak for others, especially those always running to Aso Rock to sit around waiting to suck up to Buhari and his PA or 'inner circle' members while their State is burning.

Same here. However it goes down, Southerners should get informed so we can determine when and how we have been betrayed by our leaders so that we can punish them accordingly.

Clearly we now see that Governors have the power to enforce the ban they agreed on against open grazing.

It will be interesting to note, from this point on, the Governors who show they respect the wellbeing of their people more than any commitment to pleasing Buhari and his ruling cabal. In my head I can only think of Ortom and Akeredolu because of what both have done bravely so far.

That's good. I think its high time these Fulani individuals stayed on their own. They can tell their governors to provide ranches for them. They have adequate land mass. So why can't they stay on their own??


Southerners say they don't want, stay on your own.

This like a graduation to the terrorist Fulani herdsmen a certificate for them to continue killing and raping women though they can’t try such in any eastern states . We fight and die for what’s our right.

They should bring it on.

Left to the supreme court governor and SE governors as a whole, the open grazing ban thing will b politicized...cos what those ones care about is their pockets.
