Buhari Promises To End Herdsmen Attacks Soon
President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to bring an end to the rising attacks by herdsmen across the nation as security forces have been deployed to the vulnerable areas across the country. The President made the promise on Monday in Abuja, while receiving the Board of Directors of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group at the State House, a statement by his Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said.
He said the unfortunate incident of attacks, which had resulted in the loss of lives and properties, had already brought sorrow and hardship on many Nigerians, with the government deeply affected. He, however, stressed that his administration remains resolute and focused on delivering on the three-pronged promises of securing the lives and properties of Nigerians, halting the pillage of the economy by corrupt public officials, and creating employment opportunities for the youths.
Furthermore, President Buhari said the initial economic challenge posed by the recession was already dwindling, with the economy starting out and posting better results on falling inflation rates, higher foreign reserve and better ranking on the ease of doing business.
Speaking further, President Buhari said the government will continue to strengthen its relationship with the NESG, especially in integrating its recommendations into policies that will improve the livelihood of all Nigerians.
In his remark, the chairman of the NESG Board of Directors, Kyari Abba Bukar, commended the government for the “pragmatic approach’’ in engaging with citizens of Niger Delta region which had translated into steady rise in oil production.
"Your Excellency, we salute your courage in providing support to the states that have had fiscal challenges. We recognise that without the intervention of the Presidency, many state governments would have been unable to pay salaries last year,’’ he said.
Bukar said the outlook on the economy remained upwardly positive, projecting a 3.5 per cent GDP growth, urging the President to pay more attention on the herdsmen attacks, which could reverse the gains recorded in the agricultural sector.
