Ganduje made this call during an interview with journalists after governors elected on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) had a lunch with President Buhari on Saturday, January 30, 2021, in Daura Katsina State.

He argued that the new law will address the incessant clashes between herders and farmers in virtually all parts of the country.

“My advocacy is that we should abolish the transportation or trekking of herdsmen from the Northern part of Nigeria to the Middle Belt and to the Southern part of Nigeria.

“There should be a law that will ban, otherwise we cannot control the conflicts between herdsmen and farmers and cannot control the cattle rustling which is affecting us greatly,” Ganduje said.

The governor added that he had taken a further step in his state to curtain banditry and other criminal activities associated with herdsmen and farmers.

“We are building a Ruga settlement in Samsosua Forest, our border with Katsina and we have succeeded in curtailing the effect of banditry in that area.

“We are building many houses, we are constructing a dam; we are establishing a Cattle Artificial insemination Centre; we are establishing a veterinary clinic and already we have started building houses for herdsmen,” he said.

The call is coming in the wake of ethnic tensions, especially across the South-West states which many have attributed to criminal Fulani herdsmen.

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Rotimi Akeredelu of Ondo State recently issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herders, to quit the state forest reserve ober the rising cases of insecurity in the state.

Also, a Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, more popularly known as Sunday Igboho, issued an ultimatum to Fulanis to leave Oyo state or face severe consequences.
