President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the ultimatum asking herdsmen to leave Ondo forest reserves by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
MORE recalls that Akeredolu had ordered herdsmen in the state to vacate the forest reserves within a period of seven days counting from Monday, 18th January.
The Governor also banned night grazing as well as highway and under-age grazing in the state.
But reacting in a statement on Tuesday by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari described what is emerging as a lack of consistency in messaging which in turn leads to various contradictions regarding the accuracy and the intent behind the message.
Buhari urged the state government and the leadership of the Fulani communities to continue their dialogue for a good understanding that will bring to an urgent end the nightmarish security challenges.
