Kenneth Okonkwo said this while responding to a comment on his Instagram page after he shared a video of him struggling right off the road with cattle in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Sharing the dramatic video clip, Okonkwo called for the abolition of open grazing as a way for the country to move forward.

“This is why ranching is both desirable and inevitable. How can humans and animals be struggling for a right of way in the Federal Capital City of Abuja?

“We must move on to the 21st-century system of animal husbandry to reduce tensions between passers-by, commuters, farmers and herdsmen. Have a great week ahead and God bless.

Kenneth Okonkwo, however, get trolled after sharing the video for campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari in the previous elections.

A follower @Azi_bukaz wrote: “You campaigned relentlessly for Buhari’s re-election right? You never see anything.”

Responding, Okonkwo said he does not regret campaigning for President Buhari after seeing projects in the South Eastern region of the country.

He said: “Yes I supported Buhari and I stand by my decision. When I see that the Second Niger Bridge is about to be completed when I see that runway at Enugu Airport has been expanded to accommodate international flights, when I see that Enugu-PH express roads are being rehabilitated when I remember all the other things Buhari had done for the South East and remember that PDP was there for 16 years and did nothing for us, I am proud of the decision I took and I have no apologies for that. God bless you for writing.”
