Politics Or Not, Open Grazing Ban Stands, Governor Okowa Replies Presidency

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State

Delta State Governor and Chairman of the South-South Governors’ Forum, Ifeanyi Okowa, has faulted presidency’s criticism of the ban on open grazing by southern governors.

VANTAGE NEWS reported that the presidency in a statement issued by Garba Shehu, the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and publicity, questioned the legality of the ban on open grazing by the governors.

Shehu had in the statement suggested that the ban was politically motivated.

Reacting through his Chief Press Secretary, Olisa Ifeajika, late on Monday, Okowa said nothing was wrong in the southern governors demonstrating their executive power.

“They said act of politicking and so what? If they want to call it politics, it is nothing to us,” he said.
