Buhari has clear plans to end Herdsmen Killings - El-Rufai - BellaNaija

Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, on Monday said that the Federal Government has very clear plans to end the herdsmen killings in the country.

The governor told newsmen after laying wreath to mark the Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Kaduna, that the issue is being tackled head-on.

“We met with the Minister of Interior, there are very clear plans to curtail these issues, I don’t want to speak about security programmes on radio and television, but I want to assure everyone, the President and other security agencies are doing their best.’’

He noted that security is a continuous challenge in every society and the involvements of the military have helped to stabilize the country including parts of Kaduna state.

El-Rufai stressed that the recent donation of $1 billion from Excess Crude Account by state governors were for the purchase military equipment to support the armed forces in securing the country.

“The Nigerian armed forces have contributed significantly to the development of the country in maintaining unity and integration, and in protecting the lives of citizens and controlling security challenges.

“For this, all of us are grateful to them, they have made great sacrifices and at various forms of crisis, they have stepped in for the sovereignty of the country; we are eternally grateful to them,’’ the governor added.

Besides the parade and laying of wreath to honour the falling heroes, El-Rufai also released white pigeons at the event.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    We all know Buhari is a tribalist. Has he visited Benue state after the Killing? No So what is Rufai saying then. He must think everyone is mumu!

    What plans, Shorty? Stop deluding yourself anyone is buying your surreptitious plans to insert Fulani enclaves all over the Middlebelt and Southern States. All these so-called “plans” are only but subterfuges for landgrab. Please take your precious cattle to the home States of the herders and let them ranch or graze there. Audu Ogbe wants to provide the herders with grass, so set up grazing colonies up North, if you truly wish to avert clashes. Fishermen in the Niger-Delta and farmers in the Middle-belt and Southern zones all carry out their businesses exclusively within their zones. They then transport their produce/product by road or rail to wherever they are needed. Every other businesses should also do so. This is the only plan that will work. Nobody’s buying your ‘please-accommodate-the -herder’ crap anymore, given their violent behavior.
