A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the recent tweets by All Progressives Congress (APC) Adamu Garba following the crisis generated by the quit notice given to herders in Oyo and Ondo states.
The Nigerian politician and businessman on Sunday, January 24, said that it doesn’t make sense for cows to be roaming the streets in 2021.
In a series of tweets shared on his Twitter page, Garba said cows should be ranched on a land acquired or rented by the ranchers.
He also said there is no land in Nigeria that does not belong to either the federal, state or local governments, adding that lands can only be used upon agreement with the owner.
Garba, a former presidential took it upon himself to comment on the crisis despite the fact that his views have been termed controversial by many.
However, his recent post shocked many Nigerians on the micro-blogging site, Twitter who were left speechless by Garba's tweets. Legit.ng captured some of the reactions below.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, and his supporters arrived in Igangan, a town in Ibarapa North local government area, Oyo state.
Igboho was received by hundreds of youths at the Igangan Town Hall. The activist reportedly visited the town as the quit notice he issued to the herdsmen in the area expired on Friday, January 22.
In a related development, a group of cattle breeders in Nigeria, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Ho*e, said no one has the right to evict herdsmen from the forest reserves in Ondo state because all the land in Nigeria belong to Fulani.
Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, the national president of the association told the Sun newspaper in an interview that herders will not obey Akeredolu’s directive mandating them to vacate the forests reserves.
He said the herders do not need anybody’s permission to use a forest for grazing so far as it provides the nutrients needed by their cattle.
