Anambra State House of Assembly has backed out of the proposed Grazing Bill expected to be presented to the state House of Assembly for debate and approval.
Every state legislature is expected to have 2/3 majority to pass the bill or otherwise. Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Mrs. Rita Maduagwu stated this while briefing newsmen on her score card in the past one year in office being marked today (Tuesday). She said the stakeholders, elders, the clergy and the Anambra league of professionals had roundly kicked against the bill and advised the legislative chamber to distance itself from it in the interest of the citizenry and the lgbo race in general. “The Anambra State league of professionals recently came from Lagos to see us and advised us not to support the grazing bill because of the implications and who are we say no if the people of Anambra State have spoken.” Maduagwu said that within the past one year under her watch as speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, four bills had been passed as well as 10 amended bills. She thanked the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano for giving the lawmakers enabling environment to function as an arm of government, adding that there had been cordial relationship between the executive and the legislature.
