Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), says that Southern Governors may be wasting their time if they expect President to act on their resolution.
Falana, who spoke on an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, commended the governors for banning open grazing in the 17 southern states of Nigeria.
He, encouraged them to back their ban with a legal instrument to enable the prosecution of offended
“I have read the resolutions. For me, the governors have done very well. They need to mobilise their northern colleagues. They need to walk their talk, because if you expect the presidency will act on this resolution, the governors may be wasting their precious time.
“Each of the governors will have to make enabling laws to translate the decision in the communiqué to legal instruments,” Falana said.
Falana also said that the agreement has come at the right time and “the governors have now formally joined the campaign for restructuring”.
