Southwest Governors, leaders lampoon Malami over open grazing ban comments

Oyogist.com has learned that various South East Governors and leaders has strongly criticised Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami over his comment on open gazing ban.

According to Senate minority leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, the local “bureau de change” business, which is mostly done by the Fulanis and operating in all parts of Nigeria, hasn’t elicited any resentment of other Nigerians.

Abaribe Disclosed this in a statement by Media Adviser, Uchenna Awom, said that why the bureau de change business of Fulanis has not sparked controversy was because “they live and do their business peacefully without any problem.

“It is the murderous activities of Fulani herders that have given rise to the current demand for laws that will bring about peaceful coexistence of all Nigerians.

What’s the correlation between spare parts sellers in a rented shop or government properly designated area and marauding Fulani herders destroying farms, killing and raping thus trampling on people’s private properties and means of livelihood?

“Such a divisive statement from a top federal government official, infact the Chief legal adviser to the federal government at that, exposes a very dangerous mindset. This disposition has no doubt raised the tension in Nigeria to a frightening level.

“Why should an Attorney General of the Federation be so fixated in evoking ethnic/regional fault lines when duty calls for him to be a statesman?“It is disheartening that Mr Abubakar Malami has chosen to debase our country. He has indeed questioned Nigeria’s unity. Very unfortunate.

The minister of Justice Abubakar Malami had earlier criticised the Southern Governors’ Forum resolution to place a ban on open grazing in the south.
