Miyetti Allah Begs Soludo, Says Ban On Movement Of Cattle In Anambra Will Affect Our Existence

The leadership of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MCBAN), South East zone, has appealed to Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State, not to enforce the ban on the movement of cattle by foot in the state.

The association says if enforced eventually, it would affect its members’ source of survival in the state.

Nigerian Tribune gathered that Governor Soludo, during a meeting with members of Anambra State Cattle Menace Committee at the Government House, Awka, last weekend, banned the movement of cattle on foot in every part of the state.

Addressing the committee, Soludo, said the ban was in compliance with the 2021 anti-open grazing law of the state, adding that enforcement would begin from September 2022.

According to him, now that we have a law banning open grazing, 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.

He added that his administration would ensure the implementation of the law by September.

He applauded members of the Anambra State Cattle Menace Committee for their devotion to duty, saying that the Anambra people have largely lived in harmony with herdsmen, but the herdsmen must conduct their businesses within the ambit of extant laws.

It was also gathered that 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, but failed to enforce the ban.
