Don’t Expect Me To Stop Fulani Herdsmen In Your States, President Buhari Speaks
President Muhammadu Buhari has urged governors to stop waiting for him to solve every problem for them, saying they should stop attacks by herdsmen in their states.
Many states have been experiencing deadly attacks by Fulani herdsmen, putting pressure on the President as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces with the power to control the country’s centralised security system.
President Buhari in an interview with Arise TV on Thursday, recalled two South-West governors recently visited him to complain about encroachment by Fulani herdsmen on farmlands in their states.
Describing it as a threat to food security, Buhari said:
“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.”
