Immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has given reason why herdsmen and kidnapping menace plaguing the South West, and Nigeria in general may never end.
According to him, the country can only overcome the problem when its leaders and governors stop wanting to be seen as “cabal yes men” at the expense of well-being of the people.
The governor stated this in apparent response to kidnapping and other atrocities being committed by people suspected to be criminal herdsmen in the South West and other parts of the country.
The former governor who took to his official Twitter handled to react to the troubling issue wrote:
“I warned against kidnappings and herdsmen menace now bedeviling the S/West and Nigeria long ago.
“We have now become conquered people and we will remain defenseless except our leaders and govs desist from wanting to be seen as “Cabal Yes Men” at the expense of well-being of the people.”
Though Fayose did not mention who makes up this cabal, there were allegations that the cabal ran President Muhammadu Buhari’s first term in office. Even the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, once affirmed the allegation.
