Ex-Oyo Governor, Ladoja Supports Ban on Open Grazing In Southern States


Former Governor of Oyo State and Osi Olubadan of Ibadanland, Senator
Rasheed Ladoja has expressed his total support for the decision of the Southern governors to ban open grazing in their regions.


This is coming after the Senator representing Oyo North in the National Assembly, Fatai Buhari called for a national re-orientation to curb insecurity.

They both spoke at the residence of the former governor, Bódìjà, Ìbàdàn, after observing the Thursday Eid prayers to celebrate the end of the Ramadan fast.


The Eid prayers which took place at the University of Ibadan Prayer Ground, UI was attended by notable Muslim Faithful including Senator Teslim Folarin (Oyo Central) and Dapo Lam-Adeshina (former House of Representative members), scholars and members of the UI Muslim community.


Ladoja said “Most of us know that open grazing is not sustainable. We are still practising what we have been practising 50 years ago. Let’s find a way of going for sustainable systems. The number of cows people are eating today has increased all over the world, there are more cows than human beings, yet, they maintained it without grazing openly.

“All over the world, many countries don’t have open grazing. We should also adopt and begin to see cow herding as a business that should be taken seriously.”

Passing remarks on the clamour for cessation, the former governor called for more religious tolerance and fairness, justice especially in making political appointments.
