FULL TEXT OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE ADDRESSED ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2016, BY EKITI STATE GOVERNOR, MR AYODELE FAYOSE ON THE THREAT BY THE MIYETTI ALLAH CATTLE BREEDERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA TO UNLEASH TERROR ON THE STATE
On Saturday, October 22, 2016, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), the umbrella body of herdsmen in Nigeria openly threatened to wage war against the government and people of Ekiti State, lying that four cattle belonging to its members were killed by the newly inaugurated Ekiti Grazing Enforcement Marshal (EGEM).

The federal government has finally re-introduced History as one of the subjects in the nation’s primary and secondary schools’ curriculum, explaining that its introduction as an independent subject and not a mere theme was necessitated by the clamour and concerns by several groups, including the Presidency, National Assembly and other critical stakeholders in the education sector.
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu had urged delegates to the recent National Council of Education, NCE, to consider the disarticulation of social studies in the current curriculum and re-introduction of History as a subject, adding that leaders in the education sector committed “a mistake” by removing History.

Dear Adamawa State Ethnic Nationalities,
The constitution of an Administrative Panel by the Adamawa State Government to investigate the circumstances surrounding the intermittent attacks on the Kadomon, Koh and Tambo communities of the State did not come to us as a surprise since it has almost become a routine and painful tradition for governments to venture in to such actions without coming with a result oriented outcome.
