FCTA Bans Open Grazing In Abuja, Establishes RUGA In Three Area Councils

The Federal Capital Territory Administration has prohibited open grazing of cattle in Abuja , the nation’s capital.

The Administration said it had communicated the directive to the leadership of the Fulani herdsmen in the FCT.

Disclosing this in an interview with our correspondent on Wednesday, the Director , Abuja Environmental Protection Agency, Dr Hassan Abubakar , stated that the one month ultimatum issued to the pastoralists had expired, adding that violators would be sanctioned henceforth .
The decision of the FCTA is coming against the ban on open grazing by the Northern Governors’ Forum , which described the practice as outdated .

The AEPB director said over 100 cattle earlier confiscated were returned after their owners were fined by courts, adding that any herdsman found grazing his animals on Abuja streets would be penalised heavily.

A special team , he said , had been constituted to enforce the directive .

Abubakar further revealed that the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello , had earmarked five locations for cattle grazing in Abaji, Kwali and Kuje Area Councils.

He said , “ We held meetings with the leadership of Fulani herdsmen in the FCT and they have agreed on so many issues . We have given them time, which they asked for , and when the time lapses , we will strike. They are not allowed to graze inside the city; that ’ s prohibited.

“ Even the minister has approved some grazing areas where RUGA is going to be created; about five areas. We have one around Kwali; another one in Abaji and one in Kuje.
