National Assembly To Legislate Against Conflicts Between Herders, Natives In South

National Assembly is set to legislate towards controlling the unhealthy relationship that has been growing between Fulani herdsmen and natives in the Southwest and the Southeast.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila dropped this hint to newsmen today, February 3, shortly after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari today, February 3 at the presidential villa.

“Everybody just have to come to the table and discuss and come to amicable resolution which I’m sure we will.”

Gbajabiamila believed that no ethnic group should lord it over another ethic group.

“The Southwest should not lord it over the North, the North should not lord it over the South. We should respect each other’s trade, geographical space, history, culture and more importantly, the issue of crime and murder. All these things should be completely jettisoned. “But more importantly, we all have to sit on the table and discuss this matter and look for the way forward. I think everybody is willing to do that.

“From the National Assembly, solutions will come from talking. I believe that now that we are about to start work on Tuesday, I know these issue will come up and adequate and proper legislation that will address the issue frontally and in the best interest of the country, and all nations that make up the nation, such legislation will be put in place.

“We will create the working environment suitable for them to able to discharge their responsibilities very efficiently.
