    Sunny Onuesoke, a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former Delta State governorship aspirant, has commended the decision of 17 governors in Nigeria to ban open cattle grazing and recommendation for the activation and establishment of ports in other states of the federation to create new jobs and promote socio-economic activities in the country. Recall that the governors in 17 states of Nigeria, in a 12-point communique at the end of their four hours meeting held in Asaba, the Delta State capital on Tuesday, resolved that open grazing of cattle be banned across Southern Nigeria. The forum, which expressed concern about the continued gridlock on the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, equally recommended the activation and establishment of ports in other states of the federation to create new jobs and promote socio-economic activities in the country. Reacting to the governors’ recommendations while addressing journalists at Asaba International Airport on his arrival from Abuja, Onuesoke said the governors’ decision is a step in the right direction and the best ever, advising that they should back the prohibition of open grazing with the necessary laws in their respective domains and put up formidable structures for strict enforcement.
