"E clear say di govnors no offer any solution to di herder-farmer clashes wey don dey for our kontri for generations," na so im tok.

Some members of di Southern govnors forum for Delta state

State governors for di Southern part of Nigeria bin do meeting for Asaba Delta State capital on May 11.

For di meeting di govnors all agree to ban open grazing and movement of cattle by foot for di region.

Dia decision na sake of di allege kill-kill by herders and di destruction of farm land.

Di Southern govnors also call for restructuring of di kontri, devolution of powers, and state policing among odas as well as ask President Muhammadu Buhari to convene national dialogue to address di agitations by various groups for di region.
Wetin di Presidency tok?

Reacting to di series of calls wey di govnors make, oga Shehu say im principal don approve some specific measures to bring a permanent end to the frequent crisis wey di Minister of Agriculture, Sabo Nanono, bin recommend for report wey im submit.

Im say President Buhari signed off di report for April, e accuse di Southern govnors of acts of politicking wit di intention to demonstrate their power by banning open grazing for dia various states.

According to Shehu, di ban on open grazing dey questionable legally, onto say di constitutional right of all Nigerians na to enjoy di same rights and freedoms within every one of di 36 States and di Federal Capital Territory (FCT) - regardless of di State of dia birth or where dem dey live.
