South West Governors Are Cowards – Femi Fani-Kayode Reacts To Northern Elders Advice To Fulani Herdsmen The South-West governors’ response to call by the Chairman of Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, for Fulani herdsmen to return home if Southerners are hostile to them, has gotten a knock by Femi Fani-Kayode. Prof. Ango Abdullahi had on Tuesday claimed to have received a report of violence in some sections of the country against the herdsmen. “We have heard in the few hours ago that some violence had already started to manifest in some sections of the country against the herdsmen. “If it is indeed true that their safety is not guaranteed in the places where they are residing, we would rather have them back into areas where their safety is guaranteed, and they should be coming back as much as possible to the North” he said. Reacting to the comment credited to the Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, the South-West governors’ in its statement said it was a ‘palpable trepidation and outrage, and sustained attempts to fan the ember of discord’. However Femi Fani-Kayode was not pleased with the counter-statement and he described it as ‘weak, cowardly, meaningless and nonsensical’. The former Aviation Minister tweeted; The SW Governors response to the call for the Fulani terrorists to leave the SW was weak, cowardly, meaningless and nonsensical. They could not even muster the courage to talk until after Buhari had spoken. Someone pl ask them: are u with the Yoruba people or with Fulani Buhari?

Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State, on Friday said his administration has no problem with implementation of the new national minimum wage for workers. Masari gave the assurance on Friday, when he received the new leadership of the state chapter of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC). He said that the government would look into the guidelines when released and work with the state allocation to ensure implementation. The governor, however, called for upward review of states’ revenue from the Federation Account to accommodate the new N30, 000 minimum wage. “When the guidelines are ready, the NLC leadership in the state will be invited to ascertain the new salary structure for the workforce. “Sincerely, I do not have problem with the new minimum wage, you know how much is being given to the states and local government councils,” he said. Also unveiling further plans aimed at citizens’ welfare, the governor said the administration would revamp the state Water Board to tackle water scarcity confronting residents. “The government had upgraded Ajiwa Dam, we are now working on the treatment plant and we have changed two new pumps. “We are building another treatment plant so that we can have adequate water supply for residents.’’ Earlier, the NLC Chairman, Mr Hussaini Hamisu, told Masari that they were in Government House to introduce themselves as the newly elected officials of the union. Hamisu spoke on the need for urgent implementation of the new national minimum wage by the state government. He urged the government to centralise payment of salary of Katsina State Water Board employees. He also urged the governor to consider appointing one of the union members as Special Adviser on Labor Matters
