Open Grazing: Emulate Your Southern Colleagues, ACF Tells Northern Governors

The Arewa Consuultative Forum (ACF) has counselled Northern states governors to emulate their colleagues in the Southern parts of the country on the development of ranches across the country.

The ACF, in a statement by its National Chairman, Chief Audu Ogbe, also reiterated its support for the ban slammed on open grazing by Southern governors, adding that ACF will not object to decisions taken in the best interest of Nigerians.

Ogbe, who argued that mere banning must not be the case, called on the Federal Government to review Article 3 of the ECOWAS protocol, especially as regards the free movement of cattle and other livestock into the country without restriction.

According to him, most of the violent herders are from neighbouring countries, adding that the “Federal Government must stop them.”
