Tinubu break silence on Southwest farmers/herders crisis, tells Buhari what to do about Southwest Clash:

National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has spoken on the brewing herdsmen-farmers crises in Nigeria. According to him, the destruction of crops or seizure of property of an innocent farmer or herder is an act of criminality.

Premium Times reports that Tinubu in a statement Saturday, March 13, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to convene an emergency meeting of stakeholders to address the crisis.

The former governor recommended that state governors, senior security officials, representatives of herders and farmers, along with traditional rulers and religious leaders be invited to the meeting.

He explained that the agenda for the meeting would be to hammer out a set of working principles to resolve the crisis.

He said: “To accomplish this goal, wise policy must include the following elements: Maintain reasonable and effective law enforcement presence in affected areas.

“Help the herders’ transition to more sedentary but more profitable methods of cattle-rearing. Unoccupied public land can be fenced into grazing areas or ranches and leased to herders on a very low-cost, nominal basis.”
