“If you have land in your state and you think you accommodate open grazing, you are free to do that. I am surprised that some people have taken to criticise and castigate the southern governors. Southern governors have not done anything wrong; they have done the right thing.”

While noting that his southern counterparts had towed the right path of addressing insecurity in Nigeria, Ortom stressed that open grazing was no longer feasible in the country due to development and population growth.

He insisted that the nation had great potentials and should, ordinarily, have no with poverty if the security of life and property were guaranteed in communities to allow for farming and other ventures to flourish.

Ortom appreciated the church and Muslims in the state, as well as residents for remaining supportive of his administration.

He added, “They have not done anything strange. It is what we started in 2016 and it is what also the Northern Governors Forum met some time ago and adopted that moving forward in this country, we must adopt ranching.

“I appreciate my colleagues and the people of the Southern part of Nigeria, 17 governors coming together to adopt ranching as the global best practice and the best practice in Southern Nigeria.”
