Buhari Not Advocating For Open Grazing, Presidency Clarifies

The presidency declared Tuesday that President Muhammadu Buhari opposes open grazing of cattle, in an apparent attempt to quell criticism of its statement on Monday, which quoted the president as questioning the legitimacy of Southern governors’ prohibition on open grazing.

Many people misinterpreted Buhari’s views on the Southern governors’ resolutions at their May 11 meeting in Asaba, Delta State, as an endorsement of open grazing, according to presidential spokesman Mallam Garba Shehu, who was fielding questions on ARISE NEWS CHANNEL, the broadcast arm of THISDAY Newspapers.

The Southern governors, the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation Afenifere, and some leading lawyers had all criticized the president’s Monday speech just hours before the explanation.

Shehu’s speech questioned the legitimacy of the Southern governors’ decisions, which outlawed open grazing of cattle in the South, among other things.
