Stop running to Bukhari because of insecurity – Senate leader tells state governors
Senate Leader Yahay Abdullahi told state governors to look for other ways to address insecurity in their states rather than always turning to the president for solutions.
Addressing reporters in Abuja on Monday, February 8, Abdullahi said the Senate is concerned that the shepherd-peasant crisis, banditry and uprising remain unchanged.
He also announced that Senate Deputy Chief Ajaya Boroffis’s proposal for ongoing clashes between shepherds and farmers across the country will be discussed today February 9 in the Senate meeting room.
“These are issues that should be resolved at the local level or through a dialogue based on the principles of mutual concessions.
“Indeed, this is what governors at their level should do, and they do not always rush to the president to settle disputes here and there.
“This is a federation and we are all politically responsible leaders. I can assure you that these intercommunal conflicts would be resolved in the near future. “
Abdullahi added that the criminalization of an ethnic group in the face of clashes requires urgent action.
“These are crises that need to be addressed immediately and directly in order to prevent ethnic entrepreneurs from taking over the whole situation and endangering the country.
“There are existential issues whereby communities that have so far coexisted peacefully face each other for both political advantages and political issues.”
