Southeast Governors Reject Macban’s Demand For Vigilance Group by Nobody: 2:57pm On Jun 24, 2019
The South East Governors Forum have rejected the demand by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) for the establishment of a vigilante group in the southeast to protect their members.

MACBAN made the proposal during the Southeast Security Summit in Enugu last week.

The summit was convened by the Southeast Governors’ Forum to profer solution to lingering clashes between herders and farmer in the region.

The clashes have led to killings and destruction of farmlands.

Since the report of MACBAN’s demands last week, harsh reactions have been directed at the governors by various interest groups in the zone.

Many more condemnations were also directed at the governor’s on social media with many alleging that the governors were in agreement with MACBAN on the issue.

But the governors on Monday denied ever being ready to allow such suggestions come to fruition.

The Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi stated this in a statement in Abakaliki

The statement was released by his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor.

Mr Umahi described the allegation of the Governors allowing MACBAN to form vigilance group as strange.

“I find it extremely strange for anybody to think that none locals in any part of the country including South East could be allowed to form vigilante outfit”.

” The Miyetti Allah group may have made that suggestion which I believe will never mean to form a vigilante in South East Whichever is the meaning, no Governor will allow that”

“South East Governors have their local vigilantes working with security agencies. Any such demand by Miyetti group is a joke and not acceptable. Governors of South East are doing their best and we have no problems receiving insults from our people. It is the price for leadership.

“The important thing to us is the safety and well-being of our people. Opc and other pressure groups may not have found it fashionable to be insulting their leaders even when their leaders may not be saints”, the governor said.

Governor Umahi further disclosed that his task is to develop Ebonyi State, contribute in rebuilding South East and Nigeria.

“My calling is not to insult others for me to do these . Have we been fairly treated? No. Can we solve the problem by hate speeches? For me no. Nobody no matter the level of pretence can change my style of peaceful leadership. Ebonyi, in particular, has suffered so much even in the context of South East. We believe that we do not need hate speeches as a strategy to solve our problems”

“Finally, no Miyetti vigilante in South East, no cattle ranch or colony but we must live peacefully with herdsmen that do not destroy our farmland especially those that were born here and have lived peacefully with us. All South East governors are together in this position”, the governor said. Ends

Umahi keep repeating this statement anywhere and when he is making speech. Is like he is getting drunk


Who is suffering or maltreating ebonyi in context of south east.

I find this his continuous repetitive of this statement irritating and disgusting.

It doesn't show the character of a leader.

Stupid Governors.

If Yorubas insult their Governors, there might not be those 1,123 fulani terrorist cells currently scattered in Osun forests.

If miyetti Allah knows how to maintain security, they should deploy it to katsina, kano, sokoto and all north west states where cattle rustlers are robbing them of their cattle daily.
My anger is not that this people are morons and fools, my anger is that they think we are fools like them too.

Maybe, put me through because umahi is fond of repeating that line of statement all the time. Is he trying to tell outsiders that all is not well or that his people has not been treated fairly since...??

I don't understand.

This Myeti Allah or whatever they call themselves have taken more than they can chew. How can they think of such? Just like ipob saying that they want Igbo vigilante group in hausa or Fulani land. It's the likes of Governor David Umahi that gave them the privilege to be ranting like this. This Myeti Allah should be proscribed by FG , I see them causing more harm than good in this country.

Umahi is a bastard. It's unfortunate most Ebonyi indigenes have this sentiment as if God created them a weaker vessels. They blame Enugu, they blame Anambra etc but themselves

Thats why Ebonyi is the fastest growing state in the SE

The governor has learnt to align and carry everybody along.

Is it Enugu with the first Female Governor in Nigeria or Anambra with a drunkard that keeps signing MOU on weekly basis

Ot Ikpeazu that is sharing Kerosene with no tangible infrastructure to hold on to!

Leave Umahi abeg. Its glaring to all without visiting that the state is moving

Seriously is no longer funny.

Check all his press statement, he must input that clause inside it...

Is really getting out of hand and someone should tell that.

What madness.

So being in bed with the world's 4th most deadly terrorist organisations is progress to you.

See why we southerners have nothing in common with you.

Your only mode of communication is violence.
