The controversial bill for the establishment of a National Grazing Reserves Agency on Wednesday reappeared before the Senate where it scaled the first reading.
The National Grazing Reserves Bill which has passed already second reading in the House of Representatives, has been generating ripples in the southern part of the country and some parts of the north especially against the backdrop of frequent clashes between Fulani Herdsmen and farmers across the country which has led to killings, kidnapping and wanton destruction of property.
The bill, which may become law when it passes the last and third reading in the House of Representatives and assented to by the president, seeks to establish grazing reserves and stock routes for cattle rearers in all the states of the country.
At the Senate, the National Grazing Reserves Agency Bill was sponsored by Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, All Progressives Congress, APC, representing Kano Central and co-sponsored by other lawmakers in the Upper Legislative Chamber.
