Femi Falana has stated that Southern Governors may be waiting in vain if they believe there is a resolution plan coming from President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Human rights lawyer made this disclosure, during an interview where he lauded the governors for putting a ban on open grazing in the 17 southern Nigeria states.
He encouraged them, however, to follow up their ban with a legislative instrument that would allow criminals to be prosecuted.
“I have read the resolutions. For me, the governors have done very well. They need to mobilise their northern colleagues. They need to walk their talk, because if you expect the presidency will act on this resolution, the governors may be wasting their precious time.
“Each of the governors will have to make enabling laws to translate the decision in the communiqué to legal instruments,” Falana said.
Falana added that the resolutions have come at the right time and “the governors have now formally joined the campaign for restructuring”.
In recent development, Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari over his attempts to seek foreign aid from the Joe Biden administration.
According to him, the United States may not deploy troops to defend Nigerians because of the refusal of the leaders to prosecute some counter insurgency operations.
