Written by Boom Radio on May 25, 2021
Presidency’s faulting of the ban on open grazing by Southern Governors’ Forum has come under intense criticism as the Ondo state Governor Rotimi Akeredolu have today in a press statement signed by his Senior Special Adviser on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale titled Mr Garba Sheu; On the Trail of An Agent Provocateur stated that the presidential media aide Garba Shehu was not speaking for President Muhammadu Buhari.
While reacting to the presidential aide’s statement on the issue of stopping open grazing by the forum of southern governors, the Ondo state governor stated that anyone who has been following the utterances of Garba Shehu, as well as his fellow travelers on the self-deluding, mendacious but potentially dangerous itinerary to anarchy, cannot but conclude that he works, assiduously, for extraneous interests whose game plan stands at variance with the expectations of genuine lovers of peaceful coexistence among all the peoples whose ethnic extractions are indigenous to Nigeria.
Akeredolu however stated that Shehu “cannot continue to hide under some opaque, omnibus, and dubious directives to create confusion in the polity.
The governor amongst other things he stated in the press statement also queries whether governors no longer have powers over the lands in their territories or whether They must take instructions from appointees of the Federal Government on such matters.
