El-Rufai, who spoke with journalists on Thursday at the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Secretariat in Abuja, also said the disagreement between the Benue governor, Samuel Ortom, and that of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed, is as a result of difference in opinion.
He stated that northern governors are working hard to restore peace between farmers and herders.
“We are all committed to solving the problem of movement up and down by the herders because once we solve that problem, the clashes between farmers and herders will reduce significantly.
“It will be sorted out; there will always be differences in opinion but that is not fundamental.
“The Northern State Governors Forum is committed to ending the nomadic movement of cattle and people in the shortest possible time and we are all working,” he added.
