Akeredolu reiterates 'open grazing is illegal in Ondo' 

Ondo Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has said that open grazing has become illegal in Ondo State.

Akeredolu said the country must embrace modern ways of animal husbandry.

He spoke when he received members of the Governing Board of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) led by the Chairman, Ambassador Dr. Godknows Igali.

The Governor said he was not afraid to take a decision banning open grazing.

Akeredolu, who emphasised the need for the country to embrace technology of animal husbandry, said he was happy whenever he saw President Mohammadu Buhari visit his cows in Katsina State.

He noted that Nigeria must become conducive for living, particularly for the young ones for it to attain its goals for Science and Technological advancement.

The Governor however said Nigerians were now living in fear adding that something must be done to address the situation and restore hope to the minds of the people.

“Look at what is happening in Zamfara. They try to clothe it and call them bandits. They are terrorrists. So, the growth in science cannot be based on just your charge but the conducive environment in the country,” he said.
