Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami advises FG to create an agency for herdsmen activities

Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami advises FG to create an agency for herdsmen activities

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has advised the Federal Government to create an agency that will be responsible for regulating the activities of herdsmen across the country. According to him, this will help reduce the rate of farmers/herders clash.

Malami said this while delivering his address as a special guest of honour at the Peace, Unity, and Security Lecture Series at the ECOWAS main auditorium, Abuja on Tuesday February 16.

 

“Nigeria is predominately agricultural in nature and by geography. To that extent, there is constant mobility of herders across the different belts of Nigeria. It is perhaps time to consider the setting-up of a commission for pastoralism regulated by law.

This might provide recipes for resolving protracted farmer-herder conflicts. The commission may even engage in or facilitate in-depth analytical studies with a view to providing lasting solutions for the benefit of people and the country.”he said

 

Malami opined that some of the ways peace can reign in Nigeria is for everyone to adhere to the rule of law as well as respecting the sanctity of the fundamental human rights in all ramifications which includes freedom of movement and the right of citizens to stay at whatever part of the country they choose to and other provisions as contained in Chapter 4 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, remain fulcrum for a peaceful society.
