My position on cattle ranches — Oluwo

By Ramjoe (M)July 11, 2018, 06:44:58 AM
IBADAN—
THE Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba  Abdulrasheed  Adewale Akanbi, yesterday, debunked a recent statement credited to him that he faulted two apex Yoruba socio-cultural  organisations, Afenifere and Yoruba Council of Elders on their stance against cattle ranches in the South West. Though, the Iwo king justified his position on ranching, saying Nigerians should see the nation’s properties as collective assets, he said he was quoted out of context. In a statement by his press secretary, Mr. Alli Ibraheem, the traditional ruler stated that the position of Afenifere was expected, sensing the huge loss the clashes had caused. The statement reads: “Oluwo only called the attention of every Nigerian to the side of unity, to see ourselves and soil as one. Nigeria belongs to every Nigerian. The word Hausa, Fulani, Yoruba and Ibo are discriminatory. All should be fused as Nigerian for peace and unity to reign. “If we claim that a land belongs to a section, are we saying Aliko Dangote should relocate his businesses to the North? Are we saying the westerners in the north should relocate their businesses because Kano is not their land? No. We need a change of direction. If not now, when will it be?” Suggesting an amicable solution to the incessant Fulani-farmers clashes, Oluwo said: “there is unpreparedness on the part of the federal government’s agitation for ranching, noting that most herdsmen are ignorant of the method and application of ranching.” “Ranching is a modern practice of cattle rearing as applicable in advanced nations. Nigeria is also developing. We need meat and food from our farms. It is a symbiotic relationship. To avert this menace, Nigerians should be one irrespective of location or attachment”, the monarch stated.

Puny thoughts...  o-O

Yoruba people say... "If we deep a foot in the waters and a crocodile pulls it hard, what happens when we jump in?"

If you can't make it better/easier, don't complicate things... Does it not take two to love? A union that is not established yet that has taken so many lives, what happens when it is finally set? It is clear that these herders don't have the same interests as us.

Talking about Dangote, is it the government mandating States to give him land for his establishments? And the Igbos and Yorubas in the north, do they not pay rent? How on earth can you compare these things? Just sad!

@Topic,

This "Oluwo"s opinion on this is just unfortunate and a brazen attempt to repackage faeces to make it look like moi moi.  :(

How on earth can this man compare the way other Nigerians go about their business while outside their states of origin to the way these herdsmen have done? A traditional ruler like him was kidnapped by the herdsmen in Delta state, killed and his corpse hanged on top of a tree. They did their level best to humiliate the ruler and his people. What is this "Olowu" man talking about?

In Nigeria there is what is called indigeneship and that is why we have quota system and federal character. That is also why federal institutions have catchment areas. The Nigeria he is packaging whereby Nigerians collectively own every land in Nigeria DOES NOT EXIST and will never exist. That is why a child from Anambra will score higher than another from Bauchi, but the lower scoring child is accepted into some federal schools and even military institutions. We do not own land or resources equally in Nigeria. That is a fact, and the Olowu should deal with it.

That is why some states get more money from oil sales than others. Some states even get more federal money on the strength of the size of their landmass. States with smaller land mass get less money unless they are oil producing.

Why don't states share money exactly equally regardless of location or size?

Elders who don't live by or promote the truth used to die suddenly in my part of Igboland. It is an abomination, really.

When we advocate strongly for restructuring of Nigeria, it is to give legal backing to what already exists in order for peace to reign.
