Instead of Ranching Governor Ortom Of Benue is threatening traditional rulers over anti grazing activities

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has vowed to remove any traditional ruler found to be constituting themselves into criminal elements to frustrate the implementation of the anti-open grazing law in the state.

Speaking while inaugurating local government committees for the implementation of the law yesterday at Benue People’s House, Governor Ortom said traditional rulers are expected to hasten easy implementation of the law in their various domains.

The governor said, “herdsmen that have been staying in Benue should not allow foreigners to come in and noted that the authorities can manage the indigenous Fulani and their livestock.”

Speaking further, Ortom stated that any Fulani that can speak Idoma, Tiv and other languages should prevent foreigners from infiltrating in their own interest and explained that livestock guards are going to be trained to help in the implementation of the law.
