Popular Lagos- based Architect and public affairs analyst, Arch. Asemota .O. Asemota, has taken a swipe at the special adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, who recently urged Nigerians to cede their ancestral land for cattle ranching.
Asemota in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, expressed disappointment over the plea.
He described the plea as traumatic for people already living under the threat of attacks by alleged Fulani herdsmen to give away their land or face death.
He insisted that cattle rearing is a private business, adding that the government should not spend N178bn public funds to establish ranches for herdsmen who he said “are private businessmen without a record of paying taxes.”
It would be recalled that Adesina while responding to a question on “ancestral attachments to land by indigenes” on AIT morning programme recently said:
“ 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? He also said,”being alive is better than ancestral attachment to land.”
Asemota also expressed shock that such utterances came out from a man with such a high ranking office.
