No going back on open grazing ban, says Wike

Published

on

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that he will implement the ban on open grazing as resolved by Southern State governors in Asaba, Delta State.

The Governor said he cannot be cowed by anybody, saying there is no going back on the decision to ban open grazing in Rivers State.

Wike stated this at a grand reception in his honour by the people of the Ogoni ethnic nationality in Bori, Khana Local Government Area of the state on Saturday, even as he was also conferred with a chieftaincy title by the Ogoni people led by the Chairman, Supreme Council of Ogoni Traditional Rulers, HRM King Godwin Giniwa.

He said Rivers belonged to people from every part of the state, urging the Ogoni people to resist any form of intimidation by anyone who wanted them to take the back seat in the scheme of things.

While noting that militarization of election in the state will not work, he warned incoming council chairmen in the state to brace, adding that the State House of Assembly will not hesitate to suspend nonperforming chairmen.

“Nobody should play God. We will flog them again. Militarization of election will not work. Didn’t they bring Army before? Did it work? We will flog them again.

“Nobody can cow me. The government cannot cow me. I will say my mind and I will do what is right for my people. Nobody can kill me before my time. I will die the day God wants me to die.

“Let me also tell those who are criticizing Southern Governors’ ban on open grazing, let me inform them that I have taken further steps to enforce what the southern governors resolved in Asaba.

“If anyone wants to die, let him go and die and hang himself on an electric pole. We (Southern Governors) have taken a decision and there is no going back. Enough is enough. We are not second-class citizens of this country. We also own this country and we must partake in what is happening in this country,” Wike stated.

The governor said he has directed security agencies in the state to arrest prominent personalities in the state, who flout the curfew imposed in the state to check the spate of insecurity.

Governor Wike said any prominent person caught should be thoroughly dealt with, to serve as a deterrence to others.

“Obey the curfew time. It is very important. I have instructed the security agencies to arrest prominent personalities who flout the curfew time and use them as examples. I am looking for prominent people that I will use as examples,” Wike said.
