Opinion: Why Fulani Groups Are Wrong To Threaten Southern Govs To Withdraw Open Grazing Ban

Gan Allah Fulani Development Association (GAFDAN), pan-Fulani Groups and Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, have threatened the southern Governors to withdraw open grazing ban, or forget 2023 presidency. This threat came after the southern governors gave a deadline of September 1st, for open grazing in the southern region of Nigeria.

Ibrahim Abdullahi the National Secretary of GAFDAN, pointed out that the statement of the Southern Governors is more political than realistic, and it is inappropriate for people to play politics with the livelihood of millions of Nigerians, because, if the southern governors stop open grazing in the south, they are simply telling those in charge of open grazing to relocate to another region in the country.

Also, Saleh Hassan the national secretary of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, said that the decision to end open grazing in the south without providing alternative, is just another game of politics from the Southern Governors, and they are just hungry for power in 2023.

Now, I want to state my opinion on why Fulani groups are wrong, to threaten the Southern Governors of Nigeria to withdraw open grazing ban in Nigeria, or forget 2023 presidency.

The southern governors comprises of both the People's Democratic Party, PDP Governors and the All Progressive Congress, APC Governors, so they can not be playing politics with open grazing ban, knowing fully well that come 2023 both parties will be up against each other, and each of the parties would love to see their own presidential candidate emerge victorious.

The Southern Governors are not playing politics with the open grazing ban, they are only doing what they think is right. Recall that each of them took an oath after they were elected, that they would shun every selfish interest and be faithful to the people of Nigeria. The stance by the PDP and APC Governors on open grazing ban, clearly points out that they are not playing politics, they are just doing what they feel is good for the people.

What is your take on this? Do you see the Southern Governors of the People's Democratic Party and the All Progressive Congress, playing politics with the open grazing ban as accused by the Fulani groups?
