Nigeria In One Minute




Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State is under intense pressure to prevail on the state assembly to repeal the antigrazing law, which had become a sore point for the Muhammadu Buhari administrarion, findings by the Saturday Telegraph have shown.

The situation has led to a brewing war between the governor and some of his colleagues in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), as revealed by impeccable sources within the ruling party.

While the herdsmen are hell bent on not obeying the law and go about their open grazing practice unchecked, the leadership of the state is not ready to back down on the implementation of the law, a situation that had put the Federal Government in a dilemma.
