*THIS CARROT IS DESTRUCTIVE* 1. We paid herdsmen to stop killing - Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State. 2. We negotiated with armed bandits and paid ransome to release captives - Governor Bello Masari of Katsina State. 3. Armed bandits have genuine grievances - Islamic Scholar Sheu Gumi. 4. Fulani herdsmen have justified reasons to carry A.K 47 riffle - Governor Bala Muhammed of Bauchi State. 5. Armed bandits are tired. They need encouragement - Governor Sani Bello of Niger State. 6. Not all armed bandits are criminal - Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State. Northern leaders bare facedly make cases for criminals and their activities in, and around their domains without minding who's sensibility is offended. They know them, their hideouts, take ransom to them, in fact they usually do photoshoot with them to proof to the rest of us that they know what they are doing. We really don't need a soothsayer to convince us that Northern leaders are the sponsors of criminality in their region. Yet Governors Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Babajide Sanwolu of Lagos State, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State, and Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State are all yet to find their voices in giving credence to Sunday Igboho's South West liberation movement aimed at flushing out criminal herdsmen who perpetrate wanton killings, rapes, kidnappings, armed robberies, and plundering of farms and produce, from the South West. While northern Governors don't care what you feel, South West Governors, with the exception of Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, have been set on silent mode for the sake of political correctness and savagery. Rather than speak up for the people of their states, they are busy negotiating the security of the South West for the carrot of 2023. Only the wise will understand. Yemi Adee February, 2021.
