Farmers/herders: NGF will find solution to crisis- Elrufai

The Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai has given assurance that the Northern Governors’ Forum will come up with a permanent solution to the farmers/herders altercation that has intensified in recent times around the country.

Governor El-Rufai also expressed the confidence that the disagreement between his counterparts in Benue and Bauchi states, Samuel Ortom and Bala Mohammed was more of a difference in opinion rather than a fundamental issue.

Bauchi and Benue states governors recently attacked themselves verbally on whether the herdsmen can carry gun about and whether they needed permission to stay in any part of the country.

Speaking with Journalists at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abuja after a brief closed door meeting with the party’s Director, Organising, Professor El-Mustapha Medara, Governor El-rufai said the Northern Governors were committed to ending the nomadic movement of cattle and people in the shortest possible time.
