South-West Governors Suggest States Should Be Given Full Authority To Manage Their Forest

1 Mins read

Rising from a security meeting in the Oyo State Government House in Ibadan, the Chairman of the South-West Governors Forum and Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, told journalists that in line with NEC position, all the states should be in charge of their forests.

Southwest Governors on Saturday adopted the decision by the National Economic Council on forest ownership and management across the country.

They also agreed that stronger measures must be taken to tighten security around border areas to stop the incursion of foreign herdsmen.

The meeting also deliberated on the need for government to support cattle breeding and other agricultural production, and resolved that government must help with enablers to discourage open grazing across the country.

“We believe that all the states should be in a position to manage their forests,” Akeredolu said. “And that will give enough room to determine who and who are there, what purpose are they serving, and where you have people there illegally, the state should be able to take some steps, so that we can preserve our forests.”
