President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State is right about him being Fulani herdsmen’s kinsman.

President Buhari made the comments in an interview with ARISE TV aired on Thursday morning.

In his words: “The governor of Benue said I cannot discipline the cattle rearers because I am one of them. I cannot deny that I am one of them”

When questioned on open grazing, President Buhari said he had asked for the gazette that created cattle routes and grazing areas. Buhari said he had instructed that old grazing routes be reopened and taxes paid by genuine herders to solve the farmers-herders violent crisis.

The President further described the Indigenous People of Biafra clamouring for secession as a dot in a circle that has nowhere to go.

“That IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere. And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and properties, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.

“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”

“I was encouraged by what I heard, nobody told me. Two statements from the south-south. One by the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement,” Buhari said.
