EDOCSO CALLS FOR PEACEFUL RALLY ON OPEN GRAZING BAN BILL:
This is to invite Edo people to a peaceful rally to the Edo State House of Assembly in respect of the anti open grazing bill that is currently being considered to be passed into law.
The peaceful rally is to interface with the leadership of EDHA and to officially drop the peoples’ position paper on subject matter.
Issues of concerns are:
1. The proposed 20% land for ranching in our communities/LGAs.
2. Government interest in private ventures.
3. The need for a public hearing comprising all critical stakeholders for inputs.
We are expected to converge as follows:
Date: Monday 21st March, 2022
Take-off Point: Museum Ground, Benin City.
The time for our voices to be heard is now.
*NOTE:* Maximum security has been put in place.
