Benue Assembly To Pass Anti-grazing Bill Before The End Of The Year

Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Mr. Terkimbi Ikyange has vowed that the Open Grazing Prohibition Bill pending before the Assembly will be passed before the end of the year.

The bill which is an executive one has passed through second reading and is awaiting public hearing.

Mr. Ikyange who was addressing his colleagues to mark the commencement of the Second Sitting of the Second Legislative Session said the little delay in passing the bill was to allow for public hearing which will afford critical stakeholders the opportunity of making inputs due to its sensitivity.

He called for more commitment, dedication and timely sittings on the part of the Assembly if the Assembly is to clear the backlog of pending legislative matters before it.
