Imo assembly opposes Uzodimma on anti-grazing law
The Imo House of Assembly has disclosed that the state has an operational law against open grazing.
The assembly’s position is contrary to the stance of the governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma.
The governor while speaking with journalists on Thursday said Imo does not have any law against open grazing.
“I do not have any law in Imo state against anti-grazing,” he said.
“What we have done is that we are regulating grazing activities in Imo state under a partnership between our farmers and our herders.
“They signed an MoU in my office and they have agreed to work together and they have been going about their businesses without grievances.”
The spokesperson of the assembly, Duru Johnson said the law against open grazing in the state was assented to by Achike Udenwa, a former governor of the state.
Johnson, representing Ideato south constituency, said some “flaws” in the law will be amended by the current assembly.
