We could recall that during Buhari’s first term in office under the Leadership of Sariki and Dogara in the NASS, Buhari brought the bill and it was rejected.
Now having a Rubber Stamp Senate President and Speaker House of Representatives, cunning ‘President Buhari’ has returned the bill to the NASS to grab Banks of the Rivers for his cows and brothers.
Of curious attention is the annexing of thousands of lands adjoining the river banks. These are ancestral lands belonging to poor farmers.
Without any doubt, ‘President Buhari’ will, as soon as the bill is passed, hand over permanent grazing rights to his kinsmen, the Fulanis, who will come with their destructive weapons and commence expansion into/conquest of the hinterland!
Also, the bill is intended to abrogate the Land Use Act, which has vested all lands in State Governors. This amounts to bringing grazing colonies through the backdoor.
All concerned citizens must rise up to resist this obnoxious bill aimed at enthroning and legalising anarchy.
