Photos: Edo People Protest against #EdoGrazingBill + Gov. Reveals He Was Blindsided by H.O.A

 The Edo State House of Assembly invited citizens of the state to deliberate over the #EdoGrazingBill today and it the hottest topic down there.

Incase you don't know what the #EdoGrazingBill is about, the summary is that, the government is proposing a situation where herdsmen won't be sent out of the State, but, ranches would be set up for them to graze, where they can easily be monitored.
Judging by the protests that went on today, people are not down with the idea......and rightly so. The maiming, molesting and killing of people by suspected herdsmen has made them skeptical. They are also scared that the government would take their lands.

In a surprising twist, the governor of the state, Gov. Obaseki claims he was blindsided by the lawmakers😲.According to him, he found about it like everyone else.....via the media.
