Ajibola Basiru, Abubakar Malami
Senator Ajibola Basiru has condemned the statement made by Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami following the ban of open grazing by Southern Governors.
Basiru has asked Malami to “stop rubbishing the Buhari-led APC government “ after he compared the ban on open grazing to prohibition of spare parts trading in the Northern part of the country.
He also stated that “anyone who cannot rise above primordial sentiments and pursue a parochial ethnic agenda need not occupy a position of trust especially at this time of sectional agitations.”
He added that such statement does not give hope to people at the receiving end of activities of the herdsmen.
His statement reads;
“Anyone who cannot rise above primordial sentiments and pursue a parochial ethnic agenda need not occupy a position of trust especially at this time of sectional agitations.
“It was not dignifying of the status of the nation’s attorney-general and minister of justice to make such remarks.
“Those who have no meaningful contributions to national discourse operating on the basis of equity and justice to keep quiet and stop rubbishing the Buhari-led APC government.
“These kind of statements have made Nigeria a laughing stock in the comity of Nations and they ridicule the administration of President Buhari.
These statements are not giving hope to those at the receiving end of the activities of the herdsmen.”
