Vacation Order: Makinde, South-West Governors, Miyetti Allah To Hold Peace Meeting Today

Sources have revealed that the South-West Governors would meet with the leadership of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria today in Akure, the Ondo State Capital.

This is coming in the heels of the seven-day ultimatum issued by Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, to Fulani herdsmen to vacate the state’s forest reserves which expired on Sunday.

It would be recalled that Gov Akeredolu had last week ordered that the herdsmen should vacate all the forest reserves in the state.

He also banned under-aged grazing, night grazing, and movement of cattle along the highways and within the cities in the state.

According to a source, the meeting was meant to find lasting solutions to the incessant killings, kidnapping, and crises between herdsmen and farmers in the region.

The Ondo State Chairman of MACBAN, Alhaji Bello Garba, who confirmed the development, said the national leadership of the association had arrived in Akure in preparation for the peace meeting.
