Bauchi Governor is an anarchist, not fit for public office, says Akeredolu
The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has described his counterpart, Bauch State governor, Bala Mohammed as an Anchists who is not fit for public office over his statement justifying the fact that Fulani Herdsmen can carry arms around.
The Ondo governor, who spoke through his commissioner of information, Donald Ojogo said the statement by Mohammed is most despicable, highly recommended for the dust bin of careless talks.
“If indeed he made that statement and owns up to its contents, it then means that the Bauchi State Governor has declared on behalf of the Federal Government, an Executive Order which now allows all Nigerians, herdsmen inclusive, to carry prohibited firearms like Assault Rifles for self-defence.
“That is exactly what the Governor has done and displayed by his conduct which brazenly depicts that whether other Nigerians like it or not, herdsmen must carry Ak 47 for self defence while other non-Fulani herdsmen must remain unarmed to be perpetual victims of arms wielding bandits.
“By that statement, the governor has in one breath, agreed that indeed Fulani herdsmen carry AK 47 and at the same time encouraging all to do likewise.
“The Bauchi governor has by his conduct and attitude, ushered us into the next level on the path to anarchy.
“He’s not fit for public office, persons of such impecunious disposition and character is not fit for public office.
“As long as Nigeria’s Consideration remains unchanged, it is still unlawful for any unauthorised persons to carry prohibited arms.
“The statement is most despicable, highly recommended for the dust bin of careless talks,” the Ondo State Governor said..
Recall that the Benue state governor, Samuel Orton has equally described as shocking and disappointing the statement of Mohammed.
Ortom noted that “it was shocking that a fellow governor who took the oath to protect and preserve the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria took the lead in violating provisions of the same constitution by calling for lawlessness.
“The most shocking part of governor Bala Mohammed’s statement was where he defended herdsmen for bearing arms saying they have no option than to carry AK47 because the society and the government are not protecting them.
“l wonder which section of the law the Bauchi state governor cited to support herdsmen’s free movement around the country with sophisticated weapons.
