By Tada JUHTA, Damaturu
The National President of Kulen Allah Cattle Rearers’ Association of Nigeria (KACRAN), Khalil Bello has urged members to live in peace and unity in the 31 states and Abuja.
According to him, the unity of members, while they tend their herds, will enable them to participate in the online voters registration for 2023 general elections.
While announcing the online voters’ registration on Wednesday at the Association’s 4th annual general congress in Damaturu, Bello disclosed that; “We’re committed to bring an end to the perennial conflicts between farmers and herders in the nation.”
On the peaceful unity of herders and farmers, he said that the Federal and State Governments should collaborate to work and make sure that they reclaim the encroached grazing reserves, including the blocked used up cattle routes.
He noted that once the grazing reserves are reclaimed by Governments, peace could be restored and sustained in the country.
Responding, the Yobe State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Sale Samanja, who also doubles as legal adviser to KACRAN urged the herders to always avert clashes with farmers in the state and nation.
“This is what informs my decision to join this association of herders,” he said.
