PRESIDENT BUHARI VOWS TO TACKLE HERDSMEN, FARMERS’ KILLINGS

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that he will address the perennial violence between farmers and herdsmen which has claimed several lives in the country.

President Buhari disclosed this yesterday, during a town hall meeting at the New Government House, Rayfield, Jos.

He said he would look into public outcry on marginalisation of women in the country as well as tackle unemployment which has constituted a set-back among youths.

Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, on his part appealed to the president to tackle the conflict between farmers and herdsmen, which has consumed several lives in the country, with seriousness.

The governor said the state had committed 20 billion naira into the construction of federal roads in the state, saying only 2 billion naira has been released as reimbursement.
