The Presidency has appealed to all its citizens as well as members of the international community to refrain from spreading false stories and inflammatory statements concerning the recent herder-farmer clashes.
In a statement by the special assistant media to the president, Garba Shehu, said the Nigerian Government is working closely with State governments and the Security Services – as well as international partners – in order to resolve this ongoing issue.
According to him, the clashes between herders and farmers are historical noting that the causes of these confrontations are varied and complex.
He said “Climate change, specifically the drying up of the Chad Basin, has led to more pressure on the population in the North of Nigeria, which further compounded the problem.
“As President Buhari indicated lately, there is evidence of involvement of some politicians using criminals to perpetuate the killings.
“Climate change is an issue of global significance and the Nigerian Government is determined to continue working closely with its neighbours in order to ensure that a long-term solution can be implemented.
“The Federal Government makes no distinction amongst the population and works tirelessly to protect all Nigerian people.
“We are strongest as a nation when we are united and it is through unity that we will overcome this challenge,” he stated.
