Ban On Open Grazing: Akeredolu Tackles Malami, Says “Most Unfortunate An AGF Is Unable To Distill Issues As Expected Of SAN”


Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has slammed the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, for his remarks on the Southern Governors Forum decision to prohibit open grazing in their respective states.

According to Malami, the ban on open grazing is equivalent to prohibiting all spare parts dealers in the country’s northern regions, and therefore unconstitutional.

Governor Akeredolu in a statement he personally signed and released in Akure said it was ‘most disappointing that the AGF is unable to distill problems as required of a Senior Advocate.’

The Ondo Governor noted that Malami’s outburst should not have elicited a response from reasonable people who knew the distinction between a legitimate business that is not in any way injurious and a certain predilection for anarchy.

He said, “Clinging to an anachronistic model of animal husbandry, which is evidently injurious to the harmonious relationship between the herders and the farmers as well as the local populace, is wicked and arrogant.

“Comparing this anachronism, which has led to the loss of lives, farmlands, and property, and engendered untold hardship on the host communities, with buying and selling of auto parts is not only strange. It, annoyingly, betrays a terrible mindset.

“Mr. Malami is advised to approach the court to challenge the legality of the Laws of the respective States banning open grazing and decision of the Southern Governor Forum taken in the interest of their people. We shall be most willing to meet him in Court.
“The decision to ban open grazing stays. It will be enforced with vigor.”
