Buhari: Southern Governors' Ban On Open Grazing Political, Unconstitutional / Akeredolu: Malami Arrogant, Anarchist, Ban On Open Grazing Will Be Enforced / South-West Governors And Miyetti Allah Ban Open Grazing After Meeting (2) (3) (4)
|Miyetti Allah: Ban On Open Grazing Will Remain Ineffective In The South by Gjrich(m): 10:38am On Jun 21|
The South East Chairman of Miyetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Gidado Siddiki, has rejected the ban on open grazing in the region by the Southern governors.
According to Siddiki, the ban will remain ineffective until an alternative to open grazing is provided for the herders.
The herdsmen leader revealed that the government has not provided ranching for them as an alternative in conducting their business.
Siddiki said: “Our position is that we are not opposed to the ban on open grazing, but at least we need an alternative.
“You know when somebody is doing business and you stop him from doing that business, he would be given an alternative on what to do.
“When you say that you have banned open grazing, you need to tell us how we should graze our cows because what we know is grazing. If there is an alternative, there is no problem, and that is the only thing we are begging for.
“The governors should tell us because when you want to enact a law on somebody, you have to call him so that you can tell him what he can do and you and that person will put heads together before you can do that law.
“Now that they are doing a public hearing on constitution review, they are collecting opinions, they should come up with it if they want to ban open grazing so that all of us will put our heads together. If open grazing is bringing problems, let us find ways we can coexist.”
Reminded that ranching has been proposed as an option to open grazing, Siddiki queried, “Is there any provision for that ranching?
“If there is provision for ranching, we can do ranching but I don’t think there is provision for ranching. Even in Benue State that said it has banned open grazing and will do ranching, I don’t think there has been any ranching in Benue State in all these years.
“So, I don’t know if there is the provision and that is our own problem. We were not given a chance to go for the Constitution review public hearing, we went there but nobody gave us an audience to talk to. We did not submit a petition

Go buy lands or rent one and use. We all have our bussiness and we registered with CAC, pay tax, got an office space. It is also your business handle it yourself. We have a lot of farmers in goat and pig farming. They also got pen for themselves and are doing well without blocking the roads or invading people farm. Besides how much has cattle rearers generated as tax to government. They dont pay yet you killl and disturb those that pay tax to government.

While ESN will be more active. Only in a country ruled by a terrorist will terrorists be converging openly and spewing trash without being arrested. Time for southerners to be more bullish in their approach to this almajiris
