Lagos Assembly passes bills on open grazing ban, VAT

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday passed the state’s Value Added Tax (VAT) bill and the bill that prohibits open cattle grazing.

The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, directed the acting Clerk, Olalekan Onafeko, to transmit a clean copy to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for assent.

The two bills were passed after unanimous votes by the lawmakers at the sitting where they were read the third time.

Obasa commended his colleagues for their passion to see that the state continues to grow.

“I thank you all for this historic exercise,” the Speaker said.

The House held separate public hearings on the bills on Wednesday with stakeholders expressing support.

At the parley, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) says its members are not ready for the Lagos ban on open grazing.
