Re: Of herders and farmers

Thanks Gambo Dori for the wonderful piece on the above mentioned subject. His Royal Highness, the Emir of Muri, said it all. Nigerian security and political leaders are responsible for the failure to find lasting solution to the lingering ethnic & communaVl conflicts across the Northern part of the country in particular and the entire country as a whole. The godfathers who are mostly untouchable elite go free without even being questioned.


It’s true that farmers and herders have also coexisted and they always will. The two need each other. Once those in authority decide to act, peace shall return to the country. Peaceful coexistence is what the Northern rural population are used to.
