He said: "This meeting Is in assistance to our mission to locate an enduring answer for the hazard of herders and protect the lives and properties of all inhabitants of Ekiti State. Strangely, I am wearing two tops today since I am tending to you both as the senator furthermore as a cows agriculturist. Huge numbers of you may be ignorant that I additionally raise dairy cattle like you. I have 83 dairy animals as well and I have told the individual dealing with them that in the event that he conflicts with the law and any of them is seized, he will be dependable. "Like I have kept up, I don't have anything against the Fulanis or any tribe in Nigeria. It is on record that amid my first term, I delegated a man from Malunfashi as a Special Adviser. This term as well, I named Musa Kanga into the Pilgrims Welfare Board, an Igboman is a Councilor in Ward 10 and Ado Local Government. "Or maybe, my worry as a representative and overseer of the prominent order of Ekiti State is to secure the lives and properties of all inhabitants of the State, regardless of their tribe, religion and political gathering. "It is in quest for this fundamental obligation of government that we have controlled steers brushing in Ekiti State and it is being done in other acculturated nations of the world. Then again are dairy cattle raisers driving their steers crosswise over downtown areas and significant streets, with the bovines pooping wherever in urban areas like London, New York, Paris, or even Accra in Ghana and Mecca in Saudi Arabia? "Let me in this manner repeat that there is no doing a reversal on the aggregate requirement of the Prohibition of Cattle and different Ruminants Grazing in Ekiti State Law, 2016, which came into compel on August 29, 2016. It is a law that all occupants of Ekiti State must comply. A circumstance where herders run about with arms is not adequate to us here in Ekiti and herders found with arms will be captured and accused of fear mongering. "On the off chance that we are urging our kin to grasp cultivating by offering terrains to them to cultivate through the formation of Land Banks in the 16 Local Councils, and a considerable lot of them have obtained cash to put resources into cultivating, when these farmlands being developed with acquired assets are demolished by herders, who are likewise occupied with their own particular type of cultivating, how would we motivate others to grasp cultivating?" Speaking further, the representative said: "In Oke Ako-Ekiti last May, two people were executed, individuals' spouses assaulted by those stowing away under the pretense of raising steers and I expected then that pioneers of the Miyetti Allah will indicate more prominent concern, however that never happened. "I was in this way miffed when I read in the daily papers that the Miyetti Allah undermined a backlash assault on the legislature and individuals of Ekiti State and I, as the one the general population chose to give them must not bashful far from that duty of ensuring the general population against any attacker. "When I heard that you were coming to attack our property, we were additionally arranged for you individuals since I am not one of the governors that fear anybody. A few people, as a result of governmental issues took pioneers of Miyetti Allah in Abuja to the Presidential Villa and I ask them, is Ekiti the same as Abuja? Is Senator Babafemi Ojudu who met Miyetti Allah in the Villa in Abuja the legislative leader of Ekiti State? Did he make any stride when his own particular individuals were assaulted and slaughtered?

As dairy cattle agriculturists, which I am one, we should understand that we are not quite the same as different ranchers. We are not likewise unique in relation to other agents who possess business premises where they execute their organizations. On the off chance that fish agriculturists are giving their own particular lakes and poultry agriculturists assembling their own particular pens, while likewise purchasing sustain for their creatures, there is no reason we as dairy cattle agriculturists ought not likewise give our own farm and nourish our cows without infringing on other individuals' farmlands and properties. "In this way, you have an obligation to participate in the campaign to free our State from the hazard of herders. You should uncover those covering up under steers touching to execute violations like equipped theft, murder, assault and resolved devastation of individuals' properties. "It was in perspective of this new approach I coordinated the suspension of exercises of the Ekiti Grazing Enforcement Marshals (EGEM) till today, to empower the free development of your dairy cattle to assigned farms in the State and I am certain that more likely than not been finished. "Today, I am giving steers ranchers in the State 14 days to enlist with conventional rulers in the groups where they are working while the customary rulers will forward the enrolled herders to the State government. "At the end of the day, I thank you for your support and as your senator, I make strong to say explicitly that even as steers ranchers, it is my obligation to secure your lives and properties and regardless of the circumstance, I will never bashful far from this duty."
