Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State seems to have endeared himself to the Emir of Kano, Mohammed Sanusi II.

He also has the support of the National President of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Muhammadu Kiruwa.

Sanusi II and Kiruwa declared their support for Fayose's grazing law at a peace meeting held on Monday at the Government House, Ado Ekiti.

The meeting was attended by the heads of security and law enforcement agencies, hunters, members of MACBAN, farmers, vigilantes and grazing enforcement marshals.

Sanusi hailed Governor Ayodele Fayose for the enactment of the Ekiti grazing law, saying it is for the protection of herders, farmers and the host communities.

The governor at the meeting announced amnesty for four unnamed herdsmen, whom he had accused of terrorising the people of the state.

He said he would be willing to extend the amnesty to other herdsmen, who are ready to surrender their arms to security operatives.

Sanusi, who is a member of the Board of Trustees of MACBAN, was represented by a former Kano State governor, Ibrahim Shekarau – the Sardauna of Kano and some members of the Emirate Council.
