The immediate past governor of Ekiti state, southwest Nigeria, Ayodele Fayose, says the kidnappings and herdsmen menace will not stop in the Southwest region and Nigeria at large except leaders in the country take responsibilities.
Naija News reports that the former governor made this statement on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, where he noted that had warned of the challenge long ago, adding that Nigeria and its people seemed conquered by the menace.
Fayose stressed that the menace will not end soon until leaders, especially some governors stop seeing themselves as “Cabal Yes Men” at the expense of the well-being of the people.
His words: “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 Governors desist from wanting to be seen as “Cabal Yes Men” at the expense of the well-being of the people,” he tweeted.
I warned against kidnappings & herdsmen menace now bedeviling the S/West & Nigeria long ago.
We have now become conquered people & we will remained defenseless except our leaders & Govs desist from wanting to be seen as "Cabal Yes Men" at the expense of well-being of the people.
