“Stop Playing Politics with the Lives of Innocent Nigerians”, CAN Tells President Buhari
The Taraba State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria has called on President Buhari to end all support for the Fulani militants and ensure that their attacks on farming communities end. They have also call on all of the cattle magnates and emirs that own the Fulani cattle, to establish ranches and end the free roaming grazing that has caused much of this problem. In 2017 alone, there were more than 100 attacks by Fulani militants on Christian farming villages in the Middle Belt of Nigeria, and the government has yet to do anything to effectively stop it.
01/17/2018 Nigeria (DailyPost) The Taraba State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his handling of the crisis caused by Fulani herdsmen across the country.
Speaking with journalists, on Monday, Taraba CAN Chairman, Ben Ubeh stressed that Buhari has been “sympathetic with his kinsmen, going by his handling of herdsmen killings in the country.”
Ubah challenged the Buhari-led Federal Government to stop playing politics with the lives of innocent Nigerians because he wants to please a particular group in the country.
Consequently, he called on the president to prevent the country from going into “another needless civil war”.
The Taraba CAN Chairman also highlighted that ranching was the best solution to the clashes between herdsmen and farmers.
He said, “We call on President Muhammadu Buhari, the northern emirs and the patrons of Miyetti Allah to rise up to the occasion and prevent the country from going into another needless civil war.
