Mimiko Wades Into Fulani Herdsmen, Farmer Crisis


1min read

Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, on Friday waded into the incessant crisis between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in the South west, urging both factions not to allow the matter escalate into an ethnic crisis.

Governor Mimiko made the intervention during a meeting with the leadership of the Mayetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in the South west in his office in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

The governor clamored for the construction of dams for the herdsmen to ‎breed their cattle and further advocated for increased income and access to education for the herdsmen.

In recent weeks, the cattle breeders have been holding several stakeholders meetings to make peace and improve their businesses in the region as well as end the impasse between them and the farmers.

The national secretary of the cattle breeders association, Othman Ngelzerma, said that they have embarked on numerous enlightenment programmes for their members to respect the culture of their host communities and stopping encroachment on the farms.
