Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has lauded the Southern Governors for banning open grazing in the regions and opting for the restructuring of the Federal system.
The governors under the aegis of Southern Nigeria Governors Forum, SNGF met in Delta State on Tuesday to resolve the lingering security crisis in the region.
During the meeting which was attended by Governor Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) and others, the SNGF discoursed ways of ending insecurity in the region.
SNGF also voted for the restructuring of Nigeria as means of tackling the worsening security situation and the agitation for secession.
Reacting, the human rights lawyer said the move was a “step to freedom, equity and justice in the country”.
He stated this on Wednesday via a tweet on his verified Twitter handle.
“Southern Governors, you have made us proud! I commend & salute your courage! This is the first step on the road to freedom, equity & justice.
“This is the beginning of a new Nigeria & a signal to the world that the South can no longer be taken for granted & has come of age”, Fani-Kayode tweeted.
