The governor admonished Nigerians against claiming that everything is fine in the country, claiming that this was hypocritical. He also claimed that Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency had been taken over by a cabal.

“Except we have ranching in this country because those people who are deceiving in this nation, about open grazing, they are not being sincere and most of the people around are just there to support the presidency and allow foreign herdsmen from Niger, Mali, Senegal, Cameroon from all over the place from even Ghana, from where they were chased away to come and take over Nigeria.”
