President Muhammadu Buhari’s resolve to resurrect open grazing routes in Nigeria has hit a roadblock in Bayelsa state.
Buhari, in an interview with Arise TV, said he had instructed attorney-general Abubakar Makami to reclaim open grazing routes across the country. This is despite the ban on open grazing in the country’s south.
The president’s plan may not work in Bayelsa where Governor Douye Diri has said that his people are predominantly fish farmers.
“For us, there are no cattle grazing routes in Bayelsa state,” Diri said in state capital Yenogoa on Saturday.
