No plan to establish grazing agency says Edo speaker

The Speaker of Edo House of Assembly, Justin Okonoboh has said the house has not taken decision on a bill to establish grazing agency in the state.

It would be recalled that the bill for a law to establish Edo State Control of Nomadic cattle rearing and Grazing Agency had passed through second reading on the floor of the house.
Okonoboh told newsmen in Benin that the private member bill which has sparked off controversy in the state was yet to be brought before the house for deliberation.

He said it is however the people’s will that will decide whether the bill will stay or die a natural death.

”Usually when bills come we take them the way they come. It is during the second reading that we feel the pulse of members and the public.

“Based on that we have scheduled a public hearing on the bill to allow everybody make contribution to the bill. The house has not taken decision yet on the bill because we need to hear from the public”.

According to the speaker, the public hearing will be held in two days. The first day would be for the executive, NBA, traditional rulers, CAN, community representatives and MDAs

Okonoboh said the second day would be for the Academia, CSOs and other interested parties. “After the hearing, we will collate all contributions and take decision on the bill,” he said
