OYOGIST.com has learned that not less than 40 Nigerian youths has okayed the ban on open grazing in the country.

The northern youths disclosed this after its 27th delegates’ conference in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, on Saturday.

The National Chairman of Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF), Comrade Elliot Afiyo, made this known during a briefing with news men.

He said, “We have taken time to study the communique issued by the southern governors, especially on the ban on open grazing.”We want to state clearly that open grazing has been the greatest threat to the environment of the northern region and also a major threat to the security of lives and property in the entire country.

“To the ban on open grazing, we call for the establishment of Herders Commission or Agency to cater to the needs of the herders.”We also condemned the statement credited to the Attorney General of the Federation on the ban on open grazing.

“We, therefore, appeal to the President to caution his ministers and aides who, despite being in government for six years, are still having opposition mentality.”
