Obiano not planning to favour herdsmen with land for ranching – Human interest

The National co-ordinator of the All Progressives Grand Alliance Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe has debunked media reports that the state governor, Willie Obiano, has plans to favour herdsmen with land in the state for ranching.

Describing the story as childish blackmail, Obigwe said the people of the state should discountenance the rumour.

He said,”The report that Governor Obiano wants to handover 50 hectares of land to herders for ranching is a childish blackmail and a lie from the pit of hell.

“Governor Obiano does not have such plan. This is the same way they lied that the Governor does not want to sign anti open grazing bill into law while as at the time they started peddling the falsehood, the House of Assembly was on a recess.

“It was when the house returned from the recess that the majority leader of the House of Assembly presented the anti open grazing bill to the House.

“The bill has passed through first and second reading.

“The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Uche Okafor, has promised a speedy passage of the anti open grazing bill and when that is done, they will send it to the Governor for his assent.

“Anambra disgruntled opposition elements are labouring in vain to dent the soaring image of our performing governor.

“Ndi Anambra should throw the claim that the Governor want to handover 50 hectares of land to herders to the waste bin because it’s a concocted tissue of lies that lacks an iota of truth.
