Tinubu Meets CDS, Service Chiefs, APC's Chairman Ganduje At

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu met with a delegation led by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, in the council chamber of the State House in Abuja on Thursday.

The delegation is expected to provide a document with major recommendations for reducing farmer-herder confrontations across the country.

According to a source, the conference, which began at 3:00 p.m. local time, requires the presence of the military chiefs because it involves national security.

Tajudeen Abbas, the Speaker of Nigeria's House of Representatives, put the overall number of lives lost at over 60,000 on August 29 when he launched a stakeholders' interactive session hosted by the House Ad-hoc Committee.

The session was titled 'Recurring Annual Clashes Between Farmers and Herders in Yamaltu/Deba Local Government Area of Gombe State and Neighbouring Local Government Areas, as well as Other Regions of the Country With Similar Incidents.'

Farmer-herder hostilities, which were formerly viewed as a regional or restricted conflict, have now spread to numerous West African countries, according to Abbas.
