You Are Rubbishing Buhari’s Government, Senate Spokesman Ajibola Basiru Throws Another Punch At Malami Over Open Grazing Position

Criticism has continued to trail Abubakar Malami, the attorney-general of the federation over his recent comment on ban on open grazing.

The southern governors had resolved to ban open grazing last week. But on Wednesday, Malami said the resolve to ban open grazing by southern governors is equivalent to prohibiting spare parts trading in the north.

Joining the list of critics is Ajibola Basiru, the spokesman of the senate. He said the AGF was rubbishing the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari with his comment.

In a statement on Thursday, Basiru said Malami has no business occupying the office of the AGF, adding that the responsibility to promote unity should be that of everyone.

The senator said equating the activities of nomadic herdsmen destroying peoples’ means of livelihood with others legitimately “carrying on businesses by selling spare parts in their shops stands logic on its head”.

“Anyone who cannot rise above primordial sentiments and pursue a parochial ethnic agenda need not occupy a position of trust especially at this time of sectional agitations,” he said.

“It was not dignifying of the status of the nation’s attorney-general and minister of justice to make such remarks. Those who have no meaningful contributions to national discourse operating on the basis of equity and justice to keep quiet and stop rubbishing the Buhari-led APC government.

“These kind of statements have made Nigeria a laughing stock in the comity of nations and they ridicule the administration of President Buhari. These statements are not giving hope to those at the receiving end of the activities of the herdsmen.”
