Herders: No Ethnic Group Should Dominate Others, Says Gbajabiamila after Meeting With Buhari
 
 

*Says National Assembly with find solution to herdsmen crisis

By Deji Elumoye

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, has stressed that no ethnic group should dominate other ethnic groups in the bid to resolve the recurring herders/farmers clashes in some parts of the country.

Gbajabiamila, who spoke Wednesday with newsmen after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, however, called for amicable resolution of the clashes for the nation to move forward.

The Speaker, who said he had a fruitful discussion on the state of the nation with the President, stressed that it will be wrong for any ethnic group to lord its views on other ethnic groups in the country.

He said: “I dont think any ethnic group should lord it over the any ethnic group, the South West should not lord it over the North, the North should not lord it over the South. We should respect each others trade, geographical space, history, culture and more importantly the issue of crime, murder all those things should be completely jettisoned”.

Gbajabiamila assured that the National Assembly will wade into the issue when it reconvenes next Tuesday with a view to finding lasting solution to the clashes.

His words: “From the National Assembly, solutions will come from talking. I believe that now that we are about to start work on Tuesday, I know these issues will come up and adequate and proper legislation that will address the issue frontally and in the best interest of the country such legislation will be put in place”.

“But more importantly we all have to sit on the table and discuss this matter and look for the way forward. I think everybody is willing to do that”.

The Speaker hailed the appointment of new service chiefs by President Buhari who eventually listened to the voice of the general public.

“The appointment of new service chiefs is what everybody has been clamoring for, the House, Senate, the public and the President took his time and he studied the situation very well and did it at the right time that he thought he should do it and we are in support of what he has done.

On what support the National Assembly will give to service chiefs, he said: “everything that is needed, we are all in this today, the National Assembly will not in anyway put hurdles before the service chiefs, we will make the working environment suitable for them to be able to discharge their responsibilities very efficiently”.

He advised all members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and potential members to come out to revalidate and register as members of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

To him: “Everybody should come out and register. You know registration is the beginning of an election process, election is not a one day event, it has started already. I will encourage all party members, those who are not even party members who have not registered before, those who have attained the age of 18, those who have seen the good works of Mr. President and this party to come in and join the fold and register. “So that come 2023 you know politics is about numbers, they can pick whoever they want to elect to represent them as a party flag bearer.

Dont forget registration serves dual purpose, one is for primary and the second one is for election .You have to take ownership of the party and that is what we are asking people to do”.

“The APC never really enjoyed propagating itself, we thought our work will speak for us. But for me I have since learnt you need to propagate yourself. Because, often when I sit down with some of the biggest critics of government and I say the party did this, this and this, they are in shock. I think its time we begin to market some of the achievements of party and not allow one or two little…well, they may be fundamental, I quite agree but not let those things overshadow what we have done”, he stated.
