Senator Tasks FG On Fulani/Farmers’ Clashes

Fulani Cattle

Worried by the continuing clashes between the Fulani herdsmen and their host communities across the country, Senator Mustapha Bukar has called on the Federal government to restore cattle routes that were abandoned by the previous governments as well as create ranches for the cattle farmers, noting that such approach will go a long way in addressing the lingering problem.

Speaking to LEADERSHIP Sunday at the weekend in Abuja , Sen, Bukar expressed sadness over the spate of killings and wanton destruction of properties arising from continuous clash between the Fulani herdsmen and their host communities.

The Senator urged the government to take care of the Nomadic people by providing their grazing needs in order to avoid such unwarranted clashes.

While appealing for a harmonious relationship and peaceful co-existence between the Fulani herdsmen and their host communities, the Federal Law maker also urged the Federal government to resuscitate the Nomadic education and also create ranches.

Sen Bukar who represents Kastina North senators district said “that has always been the issue ,I think that there are bold steps the state and Federal governments are taking already ,there was a motion which we talk about the issue ,we need to provide for the nomadic people and look at the whole reason they are looking for grain and water. We must look at the social setting of the Fulani man .there are cattle routes which transcend Nigeria, they came all the way from Niger, those cattle routes colonial times should be restored and create ranches for better farming.

Another reason why they move up and down is when the rain are too much they move up North because the cattle don’t like it , so we need to provide nomadic education. There is a need to look at the cattle rearing and the need of the nomadic people and address them , we need to look at it again.”
