The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has called for the enactment of a law that will put an end to the movement of herdsmen from the Northern part of the country to other parts.

He noted that the incessant herdsmen-farmers clashes might continue until this was done.

Ganduje made the declaration in while speaking with journalists on Saturday after a lunch that state governors elected on the platform of the ruling Alł Progressives Congress had with the President Muhammadu Buhari, in Daura, Katsina State.

The governor is bringing up his opinion at a time there is heightened tension in some South-West states, especially Ondo and Oyo, over quit notices issued to herdsmen.

He maintained that  the ban would also stop the problem of cattle rustling.

“My advocacy is that we should abolish the transportation or trekking of herdsmen from the Northern part of Nigeria to the Middle Belt and to the Southern part of Nigeria.

“There should be a law that will ban, otherwise we cannot control the conflicts between herdsmen and farmers and cannot control the cattle rustling which is affecting us greatly,” the governor said.

Ganduje also called on the new service chiefs appointed last Tuesday to work with state governors in order to succeed.

The reason for making the call according to him, is because the governors know the security needs of the people and the various black spots in their states.
