Yesterday, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) faulted the ban on open grazing by the Southern governors and likened it to Northern governors banning the trade of spare parts in the North. 

He claimed that the decision by the Southern governors does not hold water. He adviced that if a decision of such degree wants to be enforced, the governors should first seek constitutional amendments at the National Assembly.

Many Nigerians have reacted to Malami's statement and have lambasted him. The Governor of Ondo state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has reacted to Abubakar Malami's statement on the open grazing ban. 

According to the Ondo State Government's official Facebook handle, Governor Akeredolu blasted Abubakar Malami and labelled his statement as strange.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu reacted to Malami's comparism of open grazing ban to ban of spare parts trade, saying that trading of spare parts is legitimate and is not harming anyone, while open grazing has inflicted pain and injuries on Nigerians. 

He reiterated that the ban on open grazing by the Southern governors, is an irreversible decision and will be enforced. If Malami objects to it, then he should challenge it at the law court, where the Southern governors would happily meet him.

In his words " it is most unfortunate that the AGF is unable to distill issues as expected of a Senior Advocate. Nothing can be more disconcerting. This outburst should ordinarily, not elicit response from reasonable people who know the distinction between a legitimate business, that is not in anyway injurious and a certain predilection for anarchy. 

Changing to an anachronistic model of animal husbandry, which is evidently injurious to harmonious relationship between the herders and the farmers, as well as the local populace, is wicked and arrogant.

Comparing this anachronism, which has led to the loss of lives, farmlands and property, and engendered untold hardship on the host communities, with buying and selling of auto parts, is not only strange, it annoyingly betrays a terrible mindset. 

Mr. Malami is adviced to approach the law court to challenge the legality of the Laws of the respective states, banning open grazing and decision of the Southern Governors Forum, taken in the interest of the people. We shall be most willing to meet him in the law court".

Was Abubakar Malami right in his judgement of the ban on open grazing?
