3.) No Land In Benue For Grazing Reserves, Routes – Ortom Tells Buhari Government.

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has insisted that the North-central state would not provide any land for the establishment of grazing reserves for cattle.

Naija News reports that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had said the federal government plan to commence rehabilitation of grazing reserves in the country.

But reacting in a statement on Tuesday, Ortom described the move by the federal government as shocking, stressing that Benu is not part of any grazing reserves rehabilitation programme.

According to the governor, the state has been gazetted for grazing routes, grazing reserves, cattle colonies and Ruga settlements.

The governor wondered why the federal government would consider reopening grazing routes for cattles when people are calling for a national dialogue to address the fundamental issues rocking the nation.

He stated that there must be a hidden agenda which only the Presidency knows for it to be bent on creating grazing routes and reserves despite states agreeing that open grazing is outdated.

4.) Nigeria's Current Constitution Should Be Scrapped —Buhari's Appointee.

A professor of law and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Itse Sagay has urged the Nigerian government to scrap the current constitution and adopt the 1963 republican constitution.

He made the recommendation when he appeared on Channels TV's Politics Today on Monday.

According to him, the 1963 Republican Constitution addresses everything that is being agitated for in the country.

Reacting to a question on if President Muhammadu Buhari has the political will to implement the 1963 constitution, Sagay, who is also the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, said he had no idea.

He, however, noted that there was a report of the Nasir El-Rufai-led All Progressives Congress Committee on Restructuring.

For him, the committee came up with an excellent report, stressing the need to look at the content of the documents and implement them.

He explained that the move by the APC to set up such a committee in the first instance was indicative that President Buhari was in favour of federalism and devolution of powers.

As one of the few people who have virtually seen Nigeria from the beginning, the octogenarian revealed that he knew nothing about the Federal Government as a secondary school student.

He recalled that governance was being controlled at the regional level, noting that there was so much peace in the land at the time.
