I can end farmers, herders crisis in two to three weeks – Tinubu

On Monday, President Bola Tinubu declared his determination to resolve the ongoing farmers-herders crisis in the country once and for all.

He pledged to devise comprehensive programs aimed at bringing an end to the crisis within a time frame of two to three weeks.

These remarks were made during the inauguration of a mechanized agricultural project in Minna, Niger State.

The President, however, noted that state governors should provide lands that would help in facilitating his programme.

According to Tinubu: “We must reorient our farming population, including livestock programme.

“I don’t see why Nigeria can’t feed all our pupils with one pint of milk a day if the dairy system is well harnessed

“I know what it means as an economic sabotage for cows to eat up the crops and vegetations of our land.

“When we reorient the herders and make provisions for cattle rearing, governors must provide the land and I as the President is committed to giving you, in two to three weeks time, a comprehensive programme that will solve this problem.”
