The socio-Political group has backed Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose’s decision to ban cattle grazing in Ekiti state stating that it was a courageous move. The governor had yesterday made the declaration that all cattle should remain in their designated ranches or face confiscation by the government. He made history in the process becoming the first governor to make such a move.
The decision was in reaction to the murder of two residents by suspected herdsmen. Adenifere in a statement by their spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin, hailed the decision and also said it was timely as it was sure to save lives that might otherwise been lost.
He said “Our attention has been drawn to the courageous move by Ekiti State Governor,Mr Ayodele Fayose to ban cattle grazing in Ekiti State.
The action of the governor is a timely move to strengthen the civilisation that places higher premium on human lives above cows.
We have sacrificed enough blood in the unending cycle of blood-letting by Fulani herdsmen the latest being those killed in Ekiti two days ago.
The responsible action of the governor should jolt the Federal Government that has appeared largely indifferent to the murderous activities of the Fulani herdsmen to act responsibly on this matter.
We fully endorse this implementation of the recommendation of the 2014 National on RANCHING as against the grazing reserves being canvased in certain quarters.”
