We'll Zealously Guard Against Export Of Banditry To South - Akeredolu Tells EL - Rufai

The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, has chidded his colleague governor in Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, over the latter’s opposition to the anti-open grazing law put in place by many States in the South.

El-Rufai had dismissed the anti-open grazing laws being signed by some of the southern governors as unrealistic and one that could not be implemented.

But Akeredolu, in a statement by the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo, said such a comment ought not to  have come from a leader, wondering if Mallam El - Rufai hoped to export banditry to the 

In the statement titled, ‘Anti-open grazing: El-Rufai’s attack on southern governors devious, a hysteric ploy to externalise banditry’,  Akeredolu reiterated that the anti-open grazing law, especially in Ondo State, had come to stay.

According to Akeredolu,  the Anti-open grazing law "shall be zealously guarded and conscionably deployed to protect all residents of Ondo State, notwithstanding their ethnic and religious biases.”

The statement read, “From all indications, Governor Nasir El-Rufai, if he was properly quoted and his views not misrepresented, is struggling hard to export banditry to the South under an expressed opinion that is laced with mischief.

“Perhaps, it is apt to state clearly that the likes of Governor El-Rufai are already in a hysteric ‘mode’ of escalating and indeed, externalising banditry, especially as the military onslaught against criminal elements and other terror variants suffices in the North.

“For emphasis, any such comment like that of the Kaduna Governor, if indeed he made that statement, merely seeks to encourage anarchy under the guise of resentment of a law by affected stakeholders.”
