" I don't have problems with any Fulani man or Fulani race but I have problems with Fulani Bandits who have vowed to take over Nigeria as their ancestral home and I say NO!, not  when I'm here and when I'm Governor leading my state.


" I am not concerned about other states. Other states that want to give their lands and give themselves to be slaves to these Fulani men,.... I have no problems with them but my own state.



" I have consulted with my people and what I am doing is in line  with why my people want, " He said.
