The Anambra State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, passed the anti-open grazing bill into law.
Tracknews Online reports that after going through the bill on a clause by clause consideration, lawmakers passed the bill after third reading at the plenary.
The Speaker, Uche Okafor, had earlier conducted a voice vote on each of the clauses of the bill before its passage by the assembly.
Okafor said the passage of the bill followed the consideration of the report of the public hearing, presented by the chairman of House Committee on Agriculture, John Nwokoye (APGA-Awka North).
Subsequently, the speaker, directed the Clerk, Pius Udo, to transmit a clean copy of the bill to Governor Willie Obiano for assent.
The Bill when eventually signed into law would prevent the destruction of crop farms, community ponds, settlements and properties as well as optimise the use of land resources in the face of overstretched land and increasing population.
Besides, the assembly also considered and approved the report on the 2022 -2024 multi-year budget framework presented by the House Committee Chairman on Finance and Appropriation, Obinna Emeneka (APGA-Anambra East).
