The Nation Leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has come out to say that the current crisis between herders and farmers is not ethnic.

He recently revealed this via a statement released to the media, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, stakeholders should stop complicating the situation further as they should know better than tossing about hate-tainted statements when the issue is clearly economic.

He added that farmers have a right to farm their land unmolested, and herders have a right to raise their livestock without undue interference.

His words, “Enhanced security may be the necessary first step, but it cannot be the only step. Nor do we resolve this by hitching ourselves to emotional, one-dimensional answers.”

“Farmers have a right to farm their land unmolested. Herders have a right to raise their livestock without undue interference.”

“However, when conflict between these groups arises to such an extent, we must set forth clear principles and policies to remove the tension, in order to allow both to proceed toward their stated goals and to live in harmony and according to their respective rights.”

On the solution, “The federal should 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.”

“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.”
