Ranches Commission bill will deport Fulani herders to states of origin, Barau screams out.

On Wednesday, Deputy President of the Senate Jibrin Barau fiercely rejected a bill introduced by Senator Titus Tartenger Zam of Benue State to establish the National Animal Husbandry and Ranches Commission.

Barau said the bill, if allowed and passed into law, was targeted at relocating Fulani herders wherever they are to their various states of origin, which will be absolutely difficult as they may not know where they came from.

The concerned lawmaker maintained that the bill was in breach of the Constitution of Nigeria, 1999 as amended, particularly in regard to choice of residence, insisting that nobody should be denied where they chose to live.
