Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has banned movement of cattle by walking in all areas of Anambra State.
Soludo, who met with members of Anambra State Cattle Menace Committee at the Government House, Awka, at the weekend, said the ban was in compliance with the 2021 anti-open grazing law of the State, adding that enforcement would start from September.
“Now that we have a law banning open grazing, the law enforcement agents have been directed to implement it.
“Though the law has been in existence since almost one year ago, cattle rearers keep parading certain areas in the State in contravention to the law,” Soludo said.
Former governor of the State, Willie Obiano had assented to the Cattle and Other Livestock Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Bill of Anambra State in 2021, yet neglected to enforce the ban.
Soludo, while speaking at the meeting, said that his administration would ensure the law is implemented by September.
He commended members of the Anambra State Cattle Menace Committee for their dedication to obligation, saying that Anambra individuals have generally lived as one with herdsmen, yet the herders must conduct their businesses within the ambit of extant laws.
