Gov Akeredolu blasts ‘Wicked, arrogant’ Malami for comparing spare parts dealers to killer herdsmen

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has hit out at the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami for opposing the resolve by the southern governors to ban open grazing within the region.

In a strongly-worded statement Thursday, Akeredolu said it is worrisome for Malami who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, to compare a well-structured business such as the spare part business with the archaic method of cattle grazing which has wreaked havoc across the country.

Akeredolu maintained that the ban on open grazing in the southern region has come to stay and will be enforced with utmost vigour.

“It is most unfortunate that the AGF is unable to distil issues as expected of a Senior Advocate. Nothing can be more disconcerting,” he said.

“This outburst should, ordinarily, not elicit response from reasonable people who know the distinction between a legitimate business that is not in any way injurious and a certain predilection for anarchy.

“Clinging to an anachronistic model of animal husbandry, which is evidently injurious to 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 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.”
