Governors of the South West geopolitical zone have asked the Federal Government to set up ranches and discourage nomadic system of cattle rearing.

Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu stated this when he led other governors of the zone on a condolence visit to Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti after the funeral service for his daughter, Mrs Funke Olakunri in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Monday.

He lamented the spate of killings and other forms of criminality in the region, regretting that the governors had failed the people.

He however, assured of their readiness to protect the people.

“We are ready to protect our people. No doubt, we are faced with many security challenges. We are ready to tackle security challenges in the region,” he said.

“All the governors are saddened by the killing of Funke, it shouldn’t have happened, it has brought us down, we should hide our face, we should be blamed.

“But we are prepared to face this challenge. It’s a security challenge. Something drastic and urgent needs to be done.”

  1. Who are these unserious people? Who owns these cattle really? The fulanis or the yorubas? Fulanis are mostly employees to herd these cows! The big shots like Ex-governments officials and indeed the present ones are the true owners of these cattle.
    This is not peculiar with the South West alone. The same goes for other sections of the country. If you would investigate in your vicinity, the you’d discover that the so called big men around your area are real owners of these cattle. They only employ the fulanis to nurture them with a form of agreement in their contract.

  2. Really, the leaders have the people by romancing with evil herdsmen leaderships and behaving as if all is well while on daily basis the lives of their subjects live in perpetual crises. Another kidnap was also made in the same sport that means the leaders are simple speaking English to journalists without anything in their minds. Woe unto you leaderships of the entire southern Nigeria. None of you except FFK and IPOB leader are Worthy ambassadors. How many people will be killed before you react positively one and one or dies it mean that those killed are grasshoppers.

  3. Good! If Yoruba as a hole can be United as you said, bcos United we stand divided we fall. A bunch of broom sweep more than a single broom. Sir, we heard that Fulanis are now our Vigilantes that Secured our road for us sir? Please with the little of my knowledge sir, it will just be like using a Cat to secured a mortuary where Death Rat are kept. So please find a solution to this sir.
