Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has announced that an anti-grazing task force would commence enforcement of the ban on open grazing within the next six to eight weeks.
Speaking at a town hall meeting in Ogbomoso in commemoration of the second anniversary of the government at the Soun Ogunlola Hall, Oja-Igbo, Ogbomoso, the governor noted that the task force would cut across the entire state.
Makinde also attended to concerns of infrastructure projects by assuring the people that his administration would construct the Iseyin-Oyo & Oyo-Ogbomoso Roads.
In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, Makinde promised that his administration would focus their efforts on achieving the right things, according to The PUNCH.
He said, “In Oyo State, open grazing is against the law. The implementation plan will come out within the next six to eight weeks. So, to my brother from Oriire who spoke about open grazing, the task force will not be for Oriire alone, it will cut across Oyo State.
“So, whoever goes against the law in this state will face the wrath of law and that is just it.
“And concerning all the requests on road construction, we will plan ahead. Some of these projects will be included in the budget that we are going to come up with next year because we have to work with the fund in government coffers.
“When you engage with our team on budget, which will be going round very soon, make sure some of these roads are mentioned and I give you my promise that we will do all we can to ensure the right things are done.”
