Open Grazing Ban: Buhari And Osinbanjo Are Not In Charge, Garba Shehu Have Taken Over Govt – Bamgbose


The National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Olusegun Bamgbose, have labelled the senior special assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu as the de facto president of Nigeria.

Bamgbose stated this, as he called on President Buhari to address the nation as soon as possible, insisting that Shehu did not possess the constitutional right to act as President of Nigeria.

Bamgbose, a former supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari during his 2015 ascension to power, but now a chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, express dismay at the level of relegation of the office of the Vice President, while Garba Shehu seems to have taken over the Presidency .

Bamgbose, a legal practitioner, stated that Nigerians are now confused, as nobody knows when Shehu is speaking for himself or for the Presidency.

Bamgbose express his disappointment with the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and Shehu, over their reactions to the Southern Governors’ meeting, that was held in Asaba Delta State.

The Southern Governors after their deliberation, had placed a ban on open grazing in the region. This had not gone down well with Malami, who kicked against the governors’ decision, and even compared open grazing by herders, to spare parts dealers in the North. This drew widespread criticism to Malami.

Garba Shehu came out to further question the legitimacy of the ban on open grazing, placed by the Southern Governors.

Bamgbose in his reaction, stated that their reactions have exposed the Presidency as uncoordinated.

Bamgbose called on Nigerians to embrace National dialogue, insisting that it was needed to give room for restructuring of the country.

Bamgbose stated that the Presidency is being belittled, when every person is speaking, confusing the people over who to listen to or who not to.

However Gov Akeredolu have stated that the decision of the Southern Governors was irreversible, while Buhari’s own state govenror, Senator Masari have backed the ban on open grazing, insisting that is was un-Islamic.
