Lagos Assembly Passes Bills On Open Grazing Ban And?Vat

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday, September 9, passed the state’s Value Added Tax (VAT) and the bill that prohibits open cattle grazing.

 

The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, directed the acting Clerk, Olalekan Onafeko, to transmit a clean copy to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for assent.

 

Both bills were passed after unanimous votes by the lawmakers at the sitting where they were read the third time.

 

The bill that prohibits open cattle grazing proposes a 21-year jail term for herders in possession of firearms and the establishment of a taskforce to curb open grazing of cattle.

 

The anti-open grazing law followed similar laws passed in Benue, Ogun, Ekiti, Ondo and other parts of the country to curb killer herdsmen activities, while the VAT bill was passed in the wake of similar legislation by Governor Nyesom Wike in Rivers State.

 

The Speaker, Obasa, commended his colleagues after the bills were passed.

 

He said: “I thank you all for this historic exercise.”
