Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has berated Governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State over the latter’s comment on anti-open grazing law.
Governor El-Rufai described the anti-open grazing laws being signed by some of the southern governors as unrealistic and not implementable.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in a statement said “From all indications, Governor Nasir El-Rufai, if he was properly quoted and his views not misrepresented, is struggling hard to export banditry to the South under an expressed opinion that is laced with mischief.
“Perhaps, it is apt to state clearly that the likes of Governor El-Rufai are already in a hysteric ‘mode’ of escalating and indeed, externalising banditry, especially as the military onslaught against criminal elements and other terror variants suffices in the North.
“For emphasis, any such comment like that of the Kaduna Governor, if indeed he made that statement, merely seeks to encourage anarchy under the guise of resentment of a law by affected stakeholders.”
Gov. Akeredolu argued that even the northern governors knew that open grazing was not in the best interest of their people but only wanted to continue to oppress them by allowing them to take their cows from one region to another, adding that their mode of life was anachronistic and not going to hold.
