Spokesman of the Miyetti Allah cattle rearer, Saleh Alhassan, on wednesday said South-West governors are creating problem for the All Progressives Congress Chieftain, Bola Tinubu, and his rumoured presidential ambition in 2023, with their anti-herdsmen stance.

Alhassan, spoke on Wednesday while featuring on PUNCH Online interview programme, The Roundtable.

He said, “I sympathise with him (Tinubu) because if he says more than what he is saying, they will say may be he is pushing for his presidential ambition. That is why he takes time before he even respond but I expected him to call all his political godsons —who are governors — that are causing this confusion to order. He should call them and say, ‘Hey, when I become president, I will solve this problem for us’ (and) not to create problem for him, for his ambition.”

Governors in the region had come up with many proposed solutions to eradicate clashes including prohibition of open grazing, night grazing, under-age grazing, amongst others.

In his response to the question that whether the farmers-herders crisis could affect the political ambition of Tinubu, Alhassan alleged, “When you have a group of people attacking citizens, does it translate to political love? When you have the supposed Amotekun joining militants to attack traders in Shasha (in Oyo State), burn their properties, does it give a good political value to whoever wants to get support from those people?”

He also said the crisis was being exaggerated to score political points, adding that the Fulani herders who are of the same ethnic stock as the President are not enjoying any special preference or benefits from their Kinsman regime.
