Herdsmen Killings: It’s Dishonest To Say I Am Doing Nothing, Buhari Tells Catholic Bishops

14

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday while he receiving a delegation of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) led by Most Reverend Ignatius Kaigama at the State House in Abuja, condemned the speculations that he is doing nothing to address the crisis between farmers and herdsmen in the country.

“The impression created that I was sitting in an air-conditioned office and home, enjoying myself while these things happened, is dishonest,” he said in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

“At every step, I have tried to foresee these problems because I have the experience as a former military officer who commanded three out of the four divisions of the Nigerian army – in Lagos, Ibadan and Jos.

“I am quite aware of the problems we have and I am doing my best to get law enforcement agencies to be on alert,” he added.
