Nyesom Wike, the Governor of Rivers State, has reaffirmed his commitment to his people, promising to do everything it takes to defend them and resolve the farmer-herder problem, despite criticism from some quarters. 

Remember that Southern Governors met a few days ago in Asaba, Delta State, to discuss how they can keep the South safe, particularly by addressing insecurity issues. During the meeting, they discussed how to overcome the farmer-herder conflict, which was one of the primary issues they discussed.


The Governors decided to restrict open grazing throughout Southern Nigeria during the summit in order to resolve disputes between host communities and herders. In the past, some of these herdsmen have been accused of crimes such as armed robbery, kidnapping, rape, and murder, and in attempt to address these issues, the Governors banned open grazing across Southern Nigeria.

However, certain individuals or groups of people have expressed their displeasure with this choice. For example, Mr. Alhassan, the National Secretary of Miyetti Allah Kautat Hore, told Sahara Reporters that the Southern Governors are perplexed. He claims that the ban on open grazing is a meaningless policy that will never be implemented. Prof. Usman Yusuf, a former Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), also said that the Southern Governors did not engage the Fulani before passing the legislation.


Governor Wike responded to all of these complaints during a civic gathering hosted by the Ogoni Ethnic Nationality of Rivers State in Bori in his honor. Governor Wike stated that he has been in government for a long time and that no one can intimidate him. ‘They know their government can't control me,' he claimed. I'm going to say what I'm going to say, and I'm going to do what's best for my people. Nobody is going to help me. When God says it's time for me to die, I'll die. Nobody has the right to take my life if it is not my time to die...'

‘...let me take this occasion to say, all those who are arguing why should Southern Governors restrict grazing –I have taken additional efforts to satisfy what the Southern Governors said in Asaba,' he continues. If somebody wants to die, go ahead and hang yourself on a power pole...' He stated that he has committed to a position and that he will not be changing his mind.

“Enough is enough; we are not treated as second-class citizens in this country. We own this country as well, and we must participate in its development.” Governor Wike has pledged to put an end to open grazing in his state in order to safeguard the interests of his citizens, and he has stated that he would not submit to oppression. He claims that Southerners in the United States are not second-class citizens and should not be regarded as such.
