Opinion: President Muhammadu Buhari Should Welcome Governor Ortom’s Call To Arm Farmers In Enugu

In a news that was published by the Nigerian Tribune Newspaper yesterday evening, it has been alleged that the governor of Benue State, Governor Samuel Ortom, is already working towards arming farmers in his state with AK-47 rifles, in order for them to be able to defend themselves against Fulani herdsmen, who have been attacking farmers in the state and other states continuously.

Governor Ortom in what he said made it known that farmers are the primary target of fulani herdsmen because, they do feed their cattles with their farm produce and that, this can only stop if farmers are constitutionally empowered to carry arms in Benue or in Nigeria, as they will be able to confront anyone that trespasses on their farmlands.

Taking a look at this, Governor Samuel Ortom can’t do this on his own, as he needs the help of the Nigeria’s House of Representatives and House of Senate, as this as well can be fastly processed if President Muhammadu Buhari is in support of his decision because, farmers/herders’ clash is among the challenges this administration is facing on a daily basis and this is bringing criticism from groups and other rival political parties.

Since the president encourages agriculture and wants herders/farmers clash to stop, then he should welcome Governor Ortom’s call to arm farmers in Benue State because, security operatives are not always there to protect their lives and properties whenever herders go on rampage.
