Primate Okoh kicks against establishment of grazing reserves
Bishop of Abuja and Primate of all Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, has strongly kicked against the calls for the establishment of grazing reserve bill in the country.
Okoh made his stand at the 1st Session of the 10th synod, held at St. Mathew’s Church, Maitama, on Friday in Abuja.
He said that the grazing reserve bill was unfavourable and unkind to an average Nigerian and his community.
“We, therefore, do not support the grazing reserve bill in its entirety.
“There is no doubt that from the business of animal husbandry, the herdsmen and their principals have made a lot of money.
“Let them like other professionals, plough the money back into their business and not depend on the government as if it is the government business.
“A stock fish dealer who migrates from Aba to Kano has the responsibility of funding the re-establishment of his business in Kano without disturbing the government.
