The All Progressives Congress, has gone into an alliance with the Federal Government to create cattle colonies in Ekiti State, if the party wins this year’s governorship election, a position the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which made the revelation, on Monday, described as terrible and a big shame.  

The ruling party in the state, said that it was for this reason that the party, was providing tacit support for the killings and destruction of farmlands being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in the state.

The PDP spokesman in the state, Mr Jackson Adebayo, who made the allegation while reacting to reported comment by the APC Deputy Chairman, Chief Kemi Olaleye that the anti-grazing laws pioneered by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose and farmers should be blamed for killings by Fulani herdsmen.

Adebayo said in a press statement issued on Monday, that it was strange that the APC never said a word to condemn the murder of innocent sons and daughter of Ekiti State as well as destruction of people farmlands.

The PDP said instead of showing empathy and supporting the efforts of the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose to end the herdsmen’s menace, the APC and its leaders have been inciting the herdsmen, especially its umbrella organization, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association against the government.

The party said: “They are even saying that they will create cattle colonies in the State if they return to power and we wonder how a responsible political party will because of quest for power go into agreement that will cede lands in the State to people who are embarking on wanton killings and destruction of farmlands.

“If they claim they are not giving tacit support to herdsmen, Ekiti people should ask the APC people one single press statement they issued to condemn the killings by herdsmen and called for arrest of the perpetrators.

“Rather than condemning the herdsmen killings in Oke Oke, Orin, Okemesi, Aiyede, Ipao and other places, what the APC and its obviously heartless leaders have been doing is to criticise Governor Fayose for the anti-grazing law and visiting Benue State to commiserate with Governor Samuel Ortom and the people of the State over the killings of 73 people by herdsmen.”

The PDP admonished the APC in Ekiti State to desist from playing politics with the lives of the people, noting that support for President Muhammadu Buhari should not be translated to giving support for crimes committed by Fulani herdsmen.
