Gov Fayose makes u-turn, suspends anti-grazing marshall | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, has suspended the operations of the Grazing Enforcement Marshall, established to enforce the state’s Anti-Grazing Act which prohibits herdsmen from grazing their cattle in non-designated areas.

Governor Fayose suspended the Marshalls operations following a meeting with leaders of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeder’s Association in Ado-Ekiti where the herdsmen alleged that the Marshalls were indiscriminately ‎killing their cattle.

Fayose on hearing this allegation, immediately suspended the operations of the Marshalls.

“The marshals are not armed. There is total misinformation about killing of cows, shooting of cows. It is pure political and misinformation. So, when we leave here, I am going to go show them their cows, where they are kept and because of the accord and their understanding after the meeting I will release the cows to them for them to know that we are not extremists.

"All I want is people obeying our laws and collaborating together in the overall interest of our state".

"They have assured me that they are ready to cooperate, they have accepted the marshals. They only want to be part of the marshals so that they can equally enforce these laws with us because they know their people very well and they assured me that nobody among the herdsmen will go and use their cattle to feed on the farmlands and attack any of the citizens,” he said

    This jester call Ayo Fayose always remind me of Idi Amin Dada of Uganda.

  2. So Mr Oyetude can u shed light on how Idi-Amin and Fayose related in governance?

  3. John Akanni Oyetude you are not fear to the Governor on this matter,rather he should be commended for allowing dialogue to take place and also commend Meyitti Allah Cattle breeders for agreeing to obey the law of the land

  4. Another reason why Fayose is always my man...politically matured, consistent, fearless and true to his beliefs...Well,as events are unfolding...

  5. Fayose is the only sensible governor who have thought well for his state and the people. Many other governors are warm lookers, all they can do best is to steal.

  6. Mumu @John, I am sure you did not read this news before commenting nonsense.

    1. Mr Igbo. It is Olosi.
