Chief Ayo Adebanjo has reacted to comments attributed to Professor Ango Abdullahi, the secretary of the Northern Elders Forum, that Southerners are using Herdsmen to the divide Northern Nigeria.
Adebanjo believes that Abdullahi should be ignored adding that his statements do not make any ‘Sense’. In his words;
“So, it was the plot by the south to make cattle to invade classrooms in the south; so, it was the plot of the south that made the herdsmen to raze houses in the south; so, it was the plot of the south that made the herdsmen to kidnap Chief Olu Falae and also destroy his farm; so it was the plot by the south for the herdsmen to kill people in Adamawa, Kwara, Enugu, Port Harcourt, etc?
I believe Ango Abdullahi should talk more as a professor, and even as a former vice chancellor for that matter. I have known him for long, and for him to make that statement, I believe he should be ignored. What he has said doesn’t make any sense in view of the activities of the herdsmen.
That doesn’t solve of the problem of the country. He is one of those that we thought would be more reasonable to make reasonable suggestions to the problems of the country. I think the best thing to do is just to ignore him.”
