As it continues the search to end herdsmen-farmers clashes across the country, the Federal Government has set-up a committee of governors to visit states caught in the crises.
The 3-man committee, chaired by the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has Governors Simon Lalong of Plateau and Bindo Jibrilla of Adamawa as members. They are to visit Benue, Taraba, Zamfara and Adamawa States caught in the frontline.
Among other resolutions, the committee has been mandated to understand the different dynamics of the conflict and develop long term workable solutions.
The decision was reached after the meeting held on Thursday by the National Economic Council (NEC), chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, which had in attendance state governors.
The Umahi committee is to interface with the leadership of cattle herdsmen-Miyetti Allah, farmers and other groups in the country to find lasting solution to the lingering crisis between cattle herdsmen and farmers.
The Federal Government had earlier constituted a 10-man working committee to address the issue of the clashes.
The committee, headed by the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, comprises the governors of Adamawa, Benue, Ebonyi, Edo, Kaduna, Oyo, Plateau and Zamfara states.
