President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to as a matter of urgency stop the killings of farmers across Nigeria by herdsmen.

 

The People’s Democratic Party PDP in a communique issued after a meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP and its Governor’s Forum in Asaba on Sunday also asked the president to take responsibility for the happenings

 

“We call on Mr. President to come out clean on the herdsmen killings and address the nation on how to end the carnage; the President must take responsibility on the protection of lives and property of Nigerians which is the most important of his responsibility.

“We believe that the federal government’s decision to set up a committee to address the issues of herdsmen killings is a pretentious approach to a matter that requires firm action and leadership by the President in line with his oath of office to protect all Nigerians irrespective of creed, tribe or political affiliation,” it said.

 

The party at the meeting which was attended by all the PDP Governors and hosted by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, also, condemned the “massive corruption going on in the management of fuel subsidy regime which the federal government had earlier declared as non-existent while billions of naira are deducted monthly at Federation Accounts Committee (FAAC) meetings.
