Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has signed a measure prohibiting open grazing into law.
On Monday, the governor signed the bill, joining some of his southern counterparts who had already done so.
The governor signed the bill into law 11 days after the State House of Assembly unanimously passed it and sent it to the Executive branch for approval.
The Governor’s signature came after the Southern Governors’ Forum decided in August to set a September deadline for passing the anti-open grazing bill among member states.
According to dailytrust, He said: “By the powers vested in me as the Governor of Lagos State, I am signing the bill on Open Cattle Grazing and Trespass of Cattle on Land into law to prohibit issues associated with open grazing of livestock.”
