Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has said there is no going back on anti-grazing law in the state, no matter the threat from some quarters.
He said in a statement that “No bandit would be allowed to operate in the State under any dubious guise, as the government has the responsibility to implement the law for the benefit of the people of the state and those, who may share in their aspiration for development of their God-given space.
“They claim to be above the law of any State in the Federation. They warn of the imminent breach of peace and promotion of pervasive anarchy if they are not allowed to ravage the sweat and toil of the long-suffering farmers who, apparently, don’t count for much in the scheme of things in their estimation.
“No part of our land will be given to foreigners who cling to a dubious regional protocol as an instrument validating dispossession. Let him practice his cultural practices on his father’s land. His likes will not be permitted to operate with impunity in Ondo State. We will defend our land.”
