Vice President of Nigeria Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, through Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, who represented him during a fact finding mission to Benue State, says finding solution to the problem of Fulani herdsmen and farmers in communities in Nigeria can only be achieved collectively and with open mind.

“We are here to tell you that we feel your pains because whatever happened to Benue may affect other ethnic groups in Nigeria”, he said.

“That is why in the national economic council meetings, the issue of farmers and herdsmen’s crises were discussed extensively after which an agreement was reached that a nine-man committee to be set up to proffer sustainable solutions to the crisis between the two bodies”.

“We have heard the presentation of the Benue people and shall also try to hear the presentation of the herdsmen so that sustainable resolutions could be found.

The Vice President said that the federal government is making efforts to ensure that the problem is put to a stop. In that light, a sub-committee has been set-up to visit the four most affected states including Benue, Taraba, Kaduna, Plateau and other areas to interact with the people and get their views on how to get the best result.

“The herdsmen/farmers crises is not a Benue problem alone but a national problem, which requires national attention and solutions.”

Osinbajo made the cattle colony policy of the federal government clearer, by saying that states can not be forced to give up their land except they buy into the program accordingly.
