Ondo state House of Assembly has been charged to promulgate a law backing Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s quit order on unregistered Fulani herdsmen from the state Forest Reserves.
The State Chairman of the Agricultural Commodities Association (OSACA), Mr Gbenga Obaweya made the call in an interview with The Hope yesterday in Akure.
Obaweya said farmers received the pronouncement with joy and enthusiasm which showed that better days are ahead.
He noted that they have long been waiting for such pronouncement and expressed joy that it has finally been made.
According to Obaweya, farmers’ desire is that the pronouncement be backed with a law.
” The state House of Assembly members should as a matter of urgency, back the pronouncement with an appropriate law to ensure there is proper enforcement,” he said.
He urged farmers to cooperate with the government by providing useful information so that enforcement agency could flush out those that might defy the order.
He said they should not harbour people that could jeopardize their lives.
He advised farmers against planting but that they should start some level of irrigation and begin planting now to make the best use of this year.
