President Muhammadu Buhari has advised Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and other South-West Governors lamenting about herdsmen attacks in their states to, on their own find a lasting solution to the recurrent clashes, telling them not to wait on him before taking action anymore.
President Buhari said this in an exclusive morning interview with Arise TV today while fielding questions regarding state policing and farmers/herders clash.
He disclosed that recently, two Southwest governors visited him to complain about herdsmen encroaching on farmers’ lands in their regions.
“You know these people more than I do, and you are democratically elected to protect your people. Don’t sit idly expecting me to do everything, take action,” he said.
