The Special Adviser to Nigeria’s President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, has revealed the position of the president Muhammadu Buhari on the farmers and herders clash, and the recent killings in the country.
Femi Adesina stated that anybody bearing arms unlawfully must be arrested and prosecuted.
Adesina gave the president’s stand while responding to a question on farmers and herders clash in the country, during a National television programme, on Channels TV.
The President’s spokesman restated that the position of the president has always been the same on the farmers and herders clash.
His Words: “If the governor would say that he hasn’t heard the president speak on that matter, that’s what he should make clear. It is not that the president hasn’t spoken, because a number of times, the president has spoken on that issue.
“His position has always been the same. Anybody that carries arms unlawfully should be arrested and prosecuted.
“The president has said it countless times and that is the position. Whoever he is, wherever he comes from, criminality is criminality; anybody bearing arms unlawfully must be arrested and prosecuted.”
