Herdsmen, farmers’ clashes not unique to Nigeria – FG Say

The Federal Government has stated that festering herdsmen-farmers’ conflicts in some parts of the country were not unique to the country.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, at a press conference on livestock development in the country, reiterated that government was not leaving any stone unturned in engendering an ecosystem where everybody would live peacefully, devoid of clashes and killings.

“We hope that if and when we deal with this problem, we can export some of our solutions to our next door neighbours especially in West Africa, they too experience the same kind of things we are talking about.

“There are conflicts in Ghana, Togo, Cote d’Voire and Benin Republic between herdsmen and farmers. It is not unique toNigeria.

“We are going to call a regional conference and since the ECOWAS treaty does not forbid movement of human beings and livestock; you really can’t block them.

“Even if you want to, the borders are so open, the country is so large that we cannot fence the place. So, telling them not to come will not work and they come in large numbers, sometimes with 1,000 or 2,000 marching together.

“That is why we may be exporting some of our solutions to West Africa with the support of FAO and World Bank; if necessary,” Ogbeh stated.
