I can end farmers, herders crisis in two to three weeks – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has revealed that he’s capable of ending perennial farmers, herders crisis in the country.


He said this on Monday.


Tinubu vowed to draw up programmes that would end the crisis within two to three weeks.


He spoke during the inauguration of the mechanised agricultural project in Minna, Niger State.


The President, however, noted that state governors should provide lands that would help in facilitating his programme.


According to Tinubu: “We must reorient our farming population, including livestock programme.


“I don’t see why Nigeria can’t feed all our pupils with one pint of milk a day if the dairy system is well harnessed


“I know what it means as an economic sabotage for cows to eat up the crops and vegetations of our land.


“When we reorient the herders and make provisions for cattle rearing, governors must provide the land and I as the President is committed to giving you, in two to three weeks time, a comprehensive programme that will solve this problem.”
