President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that all state governors should resolve the herdsmen crisis bedevilling their states instead of wailing, noting that they were elected to resolve such a challenge.
President Buhari said this in a wide-ranging interview broadcast on Arise TV on Thursday.
Some states in the South-West and North-Central regions have been plagued by attacks reportedly carried out by herders, as well as the herder-farmer clashes.
But responding to a question to a question on state police and the herdsmen crisis, President Buhari insisted that the governors were elected to serve their residents and must live up to their responsibilities.
According to him, governors cannot sit in their states and wait for him to resolve issues in their domain.
“You know these people more than I do, and you are democratically elected to protect your people. Don’t sit idly expecting me to do everything, take action,” he said.
