Traditional rulers in the state have lent their voices behind Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s directive to unregistered herders to vacate government forest reserves.
The monarchs while briefing journalists at the end of an emergency meeting in Akure, called on President Muhammudu Buhari to show the world that he is the father of all, irrespective of ethnic affiliation.
The Olukare of Ikare, Oba Akadiri Momoh, who spoke on behalf of other monarchs, urged the President to advise his aides to always exercise restraint on issues that border on the current insecurity in the country.
The royal fathers also condemned deliberate attempt by some individuals to twist the governor ‘s directive.
They said Fulanis like other ethnic groups are free to live and conduct their legitimate businesses anywhere in the country, including Ondo state.
