President Muhammadu Buhari has washed his hands off the persistent farmers-herders crisis in the country, telling state governors to find a lasting solution to the problem.
Buhari said this during an interview on Arise TV on Thursday, while answering a question on state police.
According to the President, state governors complaining of herdsmen attacks in their states should fix the problem.
He also revealed that recently, two South-West 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 asserted.
