(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Arewa Consultative Forum has reacted to the seven days ultimatum Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, gave to herders in the State.
African Examiner had reported that the governor had given the herders a seven days ultimatum to vacate the forest reserves in the state due to their criminal activities.
Reacting to this development the National Publicity Secretary, Emmanuel Yawe, disclosed that the ACF will react to the issue later.
He said: “We would have preferred the herdsmen themselves to comment on it. The ACF is not only made of herdsmen; we are the conglomeration of so many interests. So, we normally don’t want to rush into such things, unless we know the facts.
“Herdsmen even have problems in the North – it is not only in the South. We prefer the herdsmen to talk first.”
