Nigeria's Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the only way to resolve the disturbing crisis between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in Nigeria is to tackle the issue with an open mind.

The Vice President who was represented by Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state, on Monday said this during the face finding mission to Benue state.

“We are here to tell you that we feel your pains because whatever happened to Benue may affect other ethnic groups in Nigeria”, he said.

“That is why in the national economic council meetings, the issue of farmers and herdsmen’s crises were discussed extensively after which an agreement was reached that a nine-man committee to be set up to proffer sustainable solutions to the crisis between the two bodies”.

Osinbajo further said in moves to resolve the chaos, a sub-committee was established to visit the four troubled states, including Bunue, Kaduna, Plateau and Taraba to converse with people and get their views

“We have heard the presentation of the Benue people and shall also try to hear the presentation of the herdsmen so that sustainable resolutions could be found.

“The herdsmen/farmers crises is not a Benue problem alone but a national problem, which requires national attention and solutions.”

The vice President further made clear that the colony policy of the Federal government can not be forced upon any state in Nigeria except they accept.
