I Advised My Benue Counterpart Sam Ortom Against Implementing The Open Grazing Bill – Plateau Gov. Simon Lalong

Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong says he had advised his Benue counterpart, Sam Ortom, against implementing the anti-grazing law.

Lalong said this in an interview with State House correspondents shortly today after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recently, herdsmen had reportedly killed scores of people in Benue State.

According to Lalong, it is not only Fulani that engage in cattle rearing.

The governor said Plateau was enjoying peace at the moment because his government brought everyone, including farmers and herdsmen, together.

Lalong also said he was convinced about the plan by the Federal Government to establish cattle colonies in states as a way of addressing the perennial crises between farmers and herdsmen.
