The Deputy Senate President, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, says the National Assembly will not support the creation of grazing reserves anywhere in the country.
Addressing newsmen on Sunday after a meeting of the South East governors and stakeholders in Enugu, Ekweremadu said that there was no bill on the creation of grazing reserves before the National Assembly.
“There is no such proposal or bill on the creation of grazing reserves either in the Senate or House of Representatives.
“Nobody is considering it; not even at the executive level. I do not think they are considering it but we will not support it even if it has been considered,” he said.
Mr. Ekweremadu said the meeting was convened in reaction to the attack on the people of Uzo Uwani by suspected herdsmen.
He said the meeting reviewed all that happened since then and thanked all
Nigerians who had shown sympathy to victims of the attack. For more, visit Premium Times.
