Bola Ahmed Tinubu has given President Muhammadu Buhari his idea of how the clashes between Herdsmen and farmers can be solved.
News Mail Nigeria gathered that the All Progressive Congress’ national leader has suggested that a security meeting be convened immediately with state Governors, Herders, Farmers and top security experts in attendance to dialogue on how to have lasting peace.
Tinubu said this in a statement he signed and forwarded to Daily Post.
Tinubu said : “Based on these strategic observations, I recommend the federal government convene a meeting of state governors, senior security officials, herder and farmer representatives, along with
traditional rulers and religious leaders.
“The purpose of this meeting would be to hammer out a set of working principles to resolve the crisis.
Tinubu added that Governors of all the states must also convene a follow up security summit in their states to find how to domesticate the ideas hammered out from the federal summit.
“After this meeting, governors of each state should convene follow-up meetings in their states to refine and add flesh to the universal principles by adjusting them to the particular circumstances of their states.
“In addition to religious and traditional leaders and local farmer and herder representatives, these meetings shall include the state’s best security minds
along with experts in agriculture (livestock and farming), land use and water management to draw specific plans for their states.”
