The task of laundering Ortom’s permanently stained reputation garments now falls on one Nathaniel Ikyur who once functioned as a reporter in Abuja for a few national dailies but is now domiciled in Makurdi as Ortom’s “principal” Special Assistant on media.

The Commissioner for Information, Akin Omole, who stated this in a statement in Ado-Ekiti, stressed that Ekiti was ready to key into ranching as a viable solution to stem the increasing wave of killings and kidnapping by herders in the state.

The governor, who made the plea in his speech at the launch of the 2020/2021 annual livestock vaccination campaign held at the Galambi Cattle Ranch, Bauchi, on Wednesday, described the Fulani people as humble, simple, and humane.

The call was contained in a statement jointly signed by Alhaji Muhammad Kiruwa, President, and Alhaji Baba Ngelzarma, National Secretary, of the association, on Thursday in Abuja.

Rotimi Akeredolu, the Governor of Ondo, one of the six South Western States, had issued an ultimatum to herders, mostly of the Fulani tribe, to vacate the state’s forest reserves within one week.
