The leadership of the Cross River State House of Assembly says it will consider the state’s grazing prohibition bill for second reading and subsequent public hearing at its sitting on Wednesday (tomorrow).

The speaker of the assembly, Honorable John Lebo (PDP Abi) disclosed this last week in a tweet where he said the bill is sponsored by first term lawmaker, Honorable Regina Anyogo (PDP Yala 1).

“CRS_HOA to Consider the CRS Grazing ( Prohibition) Bill for Second Reading and Subsequent Public hearing next week Wednesday at its seating. The Bill is sponsored by Hon Regina Anyogo representing yala 1 state Constituency CRS_HOA,” tweeted Mr. Lebo via his handle @LeboGaul.

Following a skirmish between a herdsman and a native of Ugaga community of Yala local government area in late 2017, the state’s governor, Senator Ben Ayade had announced that the state is contemplating a “controlled grazing law” after he blamed the grazing prohibition law of neighboring Benue state as the cause of the problem at that community.
