Gov. Ganduje to Buhari: Put an end to herders-farmers crises, ban cattle movement across Nigeria

“There should be a law that will ban, otherwise we cannot control the conflicts between herdsmen and farmers and cannot control the cattle rustling which is affecting us greatly”

In a bid to stave off the scourge of endless farmers-Fulani herders fights and cattle rustling in the country, a governor from the North has proffered an enduring solution.

The Federal Goverment should enact a law banning movement of cattle from the North to other parts of the nation.

The strong voice came from Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who said an end should be made to the menace.

“My advocacy is that we should abolish the transportation or trekking of herdsmen from the northern part of Nigeria to the middle belt and to the Southern part of Nigeria.

“There should be a law that will ban, otherwise we cannot control the conflicts between herdsmen and farmers and cannot control the cattle rustling which is affecting us greatly,” Ganduje told newsmen in Daura, Kastina State, President Muhammadu Buhari’s country home.

The Alł Progressives Congress (APC) governors across the country were in Daura to confer with Buhari and were treated to a special lunch.

On the progress on the Ruga project in his state, Ganduje said:” We are building a Ruga settlement in Samsosua Forest, our border with Katsina and we have succeeded in curtailing the effects of banditry in that area.

“So, we are building many houses, we are constructing a dam; we are establishing a Cattle Artificial insemination Centre.

“We are establishing veterinary clinic and already we have started building houses for herdsmen.”

Commenting on the new Service Chiefs, the governor urged them to synergize with governors, saying they know the needs of the people and the black spots in their states.

In his own comment, Gombe Gov. Muhammad Yahaya, said: “I will ask them to work hard; harder than what Mr. President might have assumed they would do because the task ahead is very challenging and I believe they will live up to expectations.”

Persecondnews recalls that President Buhari had begun a four-day visit to his state after a 10-day earlier visit in January this year.

He revalidated his membership of the APC in the ongoing nationwide registration of members at Sarki Yara ‘A’ Registration Centre, Bayajidda Primary School, Daura.
