Samuel Ortom has asserted that the anti-grazing law in the state will not be repealed despite the recent heinous attacks by the Fulani herdsmen.
The law, among other things, prohibits the movement of livestock on foot within the state.
Justifying the law, the Governor insisted that ranching “is the best way to go and it is in conformity with global best practices”.
He also accused the Federal Government of negligence, lamenting that if it had acted on the reports he gave it concerning the threats of attacks by the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, the killings would have been averted.
Ortom also rejected the suggestion for the state to create a cattle colony or grazing routes for herdsmen.
