A former Presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri, has thrown a jab at the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, over his stands on the ban on Open Grazing in the Southern part of Nigeria.
The AGF, Abubakar Malami had during an interview on Channels Television, opined that banning Open Grazing in the South is like when Northern governors come together to ban the trade of spare parts in the North.
Malami noted that the best approach for the Southern governors is to approach the National Assembly on the need to prohibit Open Grazing through an amended constitution, adding that the constitution establishes the freedom and liberty of movement.
According to the AGF, it is a dangerous position for any Nigerian governor to assume that he could compromise the freedom and liberty of any individual to move around in the country.
Reacting to Malami’s position on Open grazing, Reno Omokri noted that if Nigerians can not openly rear pigs in the North, local and foreign herders can’t do open grazing of cows in the Southern region.
He opined that Southern states could ban open grazing if Northern states can ban beer and pig farming. According to Reno, the comment by Malami shows that the Buhari-led administration is entirely behind killer herders.
Also, a tweep, @UnclePauly, while reacting to the comment credited to the AGF, stated that spare parts sellers rent shops, buy landed properties, pay taxes, kill no one, rapes no one. He added that those who destroy alcohol and still enjoy its tax revenues from other state are making weak comparisons.
