The Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, has replied Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, for demanding for grazing reserves in the south east region and other parts of the country, describing the grazing reserves demanded by Miyetti Allah as a sinister move that threatens national security and peace.
Speaking further, Ohaneze Ndigbo made it known that such demand was unreasonable, unrealistic and hallucinations of daydreamers.
This was made known in a statement that was released by the Secretary General of Ohanaeze, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, urging Miyetti Allah to respect the ban on open grazing and cattle routes by the Southern governors, Daily Post reported.
Some parts of the statement read: “Cattle rearing and businesses all over the world remain an individual enterprise and private business like other people who are in businesses of garments, mechanics and food vendors… Ndigbo has responded that the perceived demands for 415 grazing reserves across the country have sinister and wicked motives aimed at fuelling the disintegration of the country and land grabbing against the indigenous people is a threat to National Security and Peace, there are no grazing routes and lands for grazing reserves in the southeast, the Southeast Governors ban on the conveyance of cattle by foot is still effective in the southeast, and Miyetti Allah should abide by the decisions of Ndigbo not to accede lands for grazing reserves….”
On the demands for the Ministry of Nomadic Affairs, Ohaneze made it known that there is no need for irrational duplications of Ministries, noting that the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs are headed by the Northerners, therefore Miyetti Allah should seek the help of these two ministries.
