In a post, he made on his twitter page, the former minister of Aviation has urged the Southwest governors not to betray the Yorubas by giving lands to the Fulani herdsmen.
He also expressed his wish to meet with them at some point.
See post below; in his words:
I am sending a message to the 6 Yoruba Governors of SW Nigeria and Kwara state in NC,which is a predominantly Yoruba state,through this medium. It is my intention to see each of u at some point because I consider you all to be my friends but let me say this much here and now….
I urge you not to give one inch of Yorubaland to the Fulani herdsmen for settlements. If you do you it will be a great betrayal and a costly mistake. I speak as your kinsman,brother and friend and I speak out of love and concern. Please take what I am saying very seriously..
and do not do it under any circumstances. May God protect our people and grant us peace and unity in the SW.
Recall the Southwest governors met recently in Ibadan to discuss ways to tackle the rising scourge of insecurities. The summit, which focused on Western Nigeria, was organized by the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) in collaboration with the six governors.
At the end of the Security summit, the governors pledged to find a solution to the lingering security challenges in the zone.
