WARNING! ! ! Governors Are Calling For War If They Prevent Us From Grazing In Their States, Miyetti Allah Blows Hot
Bigdann MediaMay 18, 2021


The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a Nigerian umbrella group of nomadic herders, has characterized the state governors' ban on open grazing in Southern Nigeria as a declaration of war on herders.

The prohibition, according to the party, is also an empty policy.

Last Tuesday, seventeen Southern governors met in Asaba, Delta State, to discuss a number of issues, including banning open grazing of cattle in the region, which they blame for causing insecurity.

On Monday, the group' s spokesperson, Saleh Alhassan, told Punch, " We condemn it, it is absolutely unacceptable to us. " You won' t be able to close our business unless you supply us with ranches. Allow them to build ranches for us; we don' t have the land, but we' re willing to ranch and pay; allow them to create an encouraging environment for us.

" The ban is meaningless because it is based on nothing. You can't outlaw our company because we aren' t criminals; instead, they should go after the bandits and criminals.

" We can' t follow a strategy that isn' t enforced. We' ll go to ranches if they build them and invite us to, but they can' t just say they' re banning our business one day.

" The governors are planning for a war if they prevent us from grazing. They are declaring war on the herders with their acts.

" Their colleagues in the North will engage them because it is politics, " Alhassan said when asked if Miyetti Allah will talk to the Southern governors about the problem.


Alhassan also said that if the Southern governors interfered with the nomadic herders' daily business, the community would take legal action against them.

" If you interfere with our legitimate business, we will sue you in court. " We have cultural ways of dealing with inequality as well, " he said.

Governors' Decision On Ban On Open Grazing

Many Nigerians took to Twitter over the weekend to criticize former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, accusing him of remaining silent over the Communications and Digital Economy Minister, Pantami, who was implicated in a video leak linking him to Islamic fundamentalism, but who found his voice after the southern governors' meeting and 12 point resolutions in Asaba, Delta State, last week.

Several Nigerians took to social media to criticize the former vice president and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential nominee in 2019.

" So Atiku can choose not to speak on Pantami but he can speak on the Southern Governors meeting to protect the interests of the people who elected them, " one of the former VP' s critics wrote. It' s a pity. "

Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President, tweeted @atiku.


" Nigeria Is Drifting: We Can' t Wait For Godot Any Longer. Nigeria' s biggest problem today is that we are drifting. We aren' t just floating in terms of politics and economics. We' re also distancing ourselves from one another. "

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar' s detractors wrote:

@efeCamilus efeCamilus efeCamilus " The Asaba declaration is final. We' re exhausted. This drifting did not begin after the meeting of the Southern Governors. "

Another respondent, on the other hand, claimed

@Abdullahigoslow @Abdullahigoslow @Abdullahi " Indeed, sir, the governors of the south made a courageous move to end insecurity in their area. Atiku is a peacemaker, and he will support any policy that leads to peace. As a result, he backed the SG' s decision.


" When the Southern Governors met once, some people were uneasy. They don' t know how to use the strength they have. "

@JeremiahTam was another commenter. " If I were in control, I' d start holding monthly meetings right away. We get together the last week of the month. Even if we don' t say something to irritate the other guys. They can hold daily meetings of Northern Governors and even meet with foreign governments, but they can' t stand. . . "

@OgbeniDipo, another respondent, wrote:

" For the past ten years, Northern Governors have been meeting and pursuing their own agenda. After such a long time, the Southern Governors meet for the first time, and political actors are all over the place opposing them. " Their demands are progressive. Why are you so afraid of progress? "

" Northern Governors meet almost every month and come out with resolutions we often despise, but Nigeria normally passes on while they go on with their agenda, " said another supporter of the southern governors declaration, @MalachyOdo1. People are peeing in their pants as the Southern Governors meet for the first time in four years. " What a strange country. "

For this, I am willing to fight to defend myself when we ban open grazing and you fight war! Just you know that I can see your cattle and do not mind eating awoof meat, so bring your war on.

Open grazing must be banned! I support ranching and wish Buhari had been supported when it was proposed.
