Bauchi governor tackles Fayose over ban on cattle grazing

Bauchi governor tackles Fayose over ban on cattle grazing
May 26 22:28 2016

Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi state
has condemned the banning of
cattle grazing by the Ekiti State
governor, Ayo Fayose.

Abubakar said Fayose’s comment and subsequent action on the incessant killings attributed to herdsmen across the country were unbecoming of “national leaders,
especially state governors”.

Fayose had on Monday reacted to the killing  of two persons in the state, banned open cattle grazing in the country.

Addressing journalists in Bauchi on Thursday,  Abubakar said he was
worried that Nigeria had not been
able to find lasting solutions to
such clashes that have resulted in
the death of hundreds of Nigerian
lives in different parts of the
country.

“In a democracy, provisions have
been made for anybody that is
aggrieved with anything in the
country to seek redress. Instead of
resorting to making such public
pronouncements, there are laid
down laws to follow.

“On this matter, I am gladdened
with efforts of both the
Presidency and the National
Assembly which is conducting
public hearings with a view to
putting an end to such incessant
and senseless killings,”
Abubakar said.
