Taraba to implement anti-open grazing law January 2018

By Johnbosco Agbakwuru

ABUJA— GOVERNOR Darius Isiaku of Taraba State, yesterday, said the
implementation of grazing law in the state will take effect from January 2018.
The anti-open grazing law was passed in the state in July, but the governor
had said it will come into effect by February next year after sensitising all
stakeholders, including cattle breeders operating in the state.

However, Governor Isiaku, after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari in a
closed-door meeting at Aso Rock, told newsmen that implementation of the
law will now begin from January, even as he said that already there was
relative peace in the state.

Isiaku said he was at the Presidential Villa to brief President Buhari on
situation of things, especially security issues in Taraba State and the success
recorded so far, adding that the peace which had returned, should be
enhanced through presidential support.

Another reason that brought him to the Villa, he added, was to generally brief
the President on the success his administration had recorded on agriculture
and to also thank him for the award of Mambilla Hydro-Power project, which
he said was one of the biggest hydro-projects in the country.

The Mambilla hydro-power project, he further stated, had remained on the
drawing board for over 30 years until the present administration came on

His words: “It is a very good project for the country as a whole— 3.050
megawatts. For those who know what a megawatt is, they know this can do
a lot in developing Nigeria.”
