The Presidency has charged those against the administration’s ranching and colony programmes for herdsmen to rethink, noting that they are better off living with the ranches and colonies than dying through the persisting conflicts.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, speaking on an AIT morning programme in response to a question on ancestral attachments to land said:

“Ancestral attachment? You can only have ancestral attachment when you are alive. If you are talking about ancestral attachment, if you are dead, how does the attachment matter?

  1. …we will take our chances,
    ..let it be said;
    *that we chose to die on our feet rather than live on our knees
    ‘PERIOD’

  2. Is this what supposed to come out from a president it his appointees

    This country is gone

  3. Mr president you are not serious fulanis People don’t Have anything like land in Nigeria I promise you mr president if fulanis people refuse to stop killing people in Nigerian revenge is on then way mr president talk to your people now we can not take it anymore again is too much for you and your fulanis people fulanis pack and go Every soon Nigeria is no more save for you people again

  4. Its so unfortunate a president will be negotiating with terrorists, Fulani or herdsmen can’t take our land, if they want to make a deal? Let them come but if they will continue killing! We’ll show them how to handle arms. They still de learn

  5. That is total madness for mr president to utter such words.God we need you in this our nigeria.

  6. For the first time, pls permit me to say this guy us a bastard, so they know that Fulani kills, Nigerians will not give then land and no one will be killed any longer. A knife for a knife and a how for a how.

  7. Mr President Mr President do you think you can convince us to agree with your Islamic agendas by telling us that life is more important than land of course life is more important than land but the question is that do you really value human life? That you will open your mouth to tell us that life is more important than land and to your Brothers don’t they know that? you go tell them that life is more important than land that they should stop killing Mr President your stupidity is beyond human imagination animal clothed by human flesh your brothers are here killing Innocent citizen you are here talking trash animal muhammadu buhari you are an animal when I say animal I mean Jackie that is what you are

  8. If we need to give our ancestral lands to killer Fulanis to live, where are their own ancestral lands, can’t they ho back to it? Or they do not have ancestral lands? Then they are intruders and should be charged for trespass except… Meanwhile, if the Fulanis must be given our ancestral lands for them and their sponsors to be appeased, Igbo spare part dealers among others should be allowed to have Biafra for their agitation and killing of the Igbos to stop. Is cattle rearing a public Enterprise, Multinational Cooperation, Partnership business or Sole proprietorship? People should not be fanning the embers of anarchy because they found themselves in the corridors of power. You will not always be there. It’s better to die being free than to be a life but a slave in your father’s land. If the quest to seize the ancestral lands of aborigines and give them to strangers is being championed to extend the frontiers of Othman Danfodio’s empire, araba. Gbam!

  9. Islamization agenda is what the president is trying to impose on Nigerians and nothing else

  10. This statement from Femi Adesina shows that Federal Government is backing and encouraging the activities of the Herdsmen in Nigeria. When we are expecting the Government to urgently check the wickedness and unlawful activities of these Fulanis who kill Farmers and destroy their properties to take care of their own properties, you now feel allocating land to Killers distroyers is the appropriate solution to the persisting conflicts between Landlord and criminal Tenants. This is as equal as given them the right and freedom to go anywhere in Nigeria to forcefully acquire land and establish their own territory which will later become dictatorial center for the indigenous people of that area. At least Femi Adesina is a Yoruba man. He is supposed to know trauma his tribesmen are going through in the hands of these Herdsmen. So, for him to have alter this statement is like closing his eyes at the suffering of his people. So, it’s advisable for Federal Government to use the right spanner in loosing the right bolt instead of putting the round peg in the square hole.

  12. It is now obvious that the president is the one sponsoring the helmsmen,nigeria doesn’t know that they appointed a terrorist as a president, it painful

  13. Mr President I greet you but please are you saying people should surrender to the fulanis their ancestral lands for better peace with the fulanis ?because I see no reason for such if the fulani man is known for trouble who will want to live with him ?

  14. Mr. President you don’t have sense at all, how can you ask the public to give land to those ungrateful strangers. Well that’s your propaganda but it won’t work for you nonsense. Now you telling the public that you are proudly the one sponsoring those animals. Intact God go punish you

  15. The way? America under ‘real’ Donald Trump is first. Why is. Buhari puting Nigeria second place? We all should find out if the. Fulanis have a real country in Futa Jallon. They are a minority. Did not Nigeria sent. Ghana packing by legislation? It seems we are afraid? Just one small group!
