Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) South-South leader, Chief Edwin Clark has knocked President Muhammadu Buhari over his imposition of open grazing on state governments.
Clark said; “The decision on open grazing and other decisions taken on national interest by the seventeen Southern governors received the full support of the people of Southern Nigeria, particularly the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo of the South-East, PANDEF of the South-South and the Afenifere of the South-West.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari has no power or authority to impose open grazing on state governments.”
“Therefore, any law banning open grazing by state governments isn’t only legal and binding but is unchallengeable and binding on any person or group of persons, including the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
“We’ll no longer tolerate hate and divisive statements targeted at deriding and insulting others, from these Fulanis who believe Nigeria is exclusively theirs and other Nigerians are their subjects and not their fellow citizens.”
For those who don’t know Buhari in an interview recently revealed his plan to allow herdsmen to trail designated routes across Nigeria.
