Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has said that the quit notice order by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to Fulani Herdsmen was wrong.
Recall that Akeredolu had issued an ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen to vacate Ondo forest reserves. Urging all unregistered herders to vacate the state’s forest reserves.
Reacting to the order, the Federal government had condemned the ultimatum, in a statement by President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu.
However, the former lawmaker in a post on his Facebook wrote: “My Dear Governor Akeredolu, I’m quiet aware of the security challenges facing your state. I appreciate your efforts, but it’s outrightly and completely wrong to ask all cattle herders to leave Ondo forests.
“The sins of a criminal few should not affect the law abiding and peaceful ones who have the right to live and move freely in all parts of our country.
“Efforts must continue to be made to deal with those who breach the law,while and respecting and protecting the rights of the innocent.”
