Law On Open Cattle Grazing

Law On Open Cattle Grazing

Court Many Years Ago Declared Open Grazing Illegal - Suit no AB/26/66, 17th April, 1969

Reagan Ufomba noted:

What most Nigerians do not know is that there is an existing law against open grazing in Nigeria; just as they did not know that Section 52 (2) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as ammended) dealing with non-admissibility of "electronic voting at this time" was expunged before the 2015 elections and replaced with a new section 52 (2) and signed into law on the 26th day of March 2015 by former president Goodluck Jonathan. An action that gave legitimacy to the use of card reader only in the 2015 election. By the foregoing, the use of incident form was null and void.

This is a matter for another day, and a political lesson to those who claim to know politics more than the rest of us.

In his judgment on Open Cattle Grazing - Suit no AB/26/66, Hon.Justice Adewale Thompson on the 17th day of  April,1969 at Abeokuta Division of the High Court, had this to say:

"I do not accept the contention of Defendants that a custom exists which imposes an obligation on the owner of farm to fence his farm whilst the owner of cattle allows his cattle to wander like pests and cause damage.  Such a custom if it exists, is unreasonable and I hold that it is repugnant to natural justice, equity and good conscience and therefore that it is highly unreasonable to impose the burden of fencing a farm on the farmer without the corresponding obligation on the cattle owner to fence in his cattle. Sequence to that I ban open grazing for it is inimical to peace and tranquillity and the cattle owners must fence or ranch their animals for peace to reign in these communities."

It's about time states put this law into practice as there was no appeal against it.

What are we waiting for? Isn’t it very obvious even to the daftest that the contraption called Nigeria is a failed state by every definition and every parameter? Is this what a country of 186 million people supposed to be? Should we continue to sustain a country that is unsustainable?
