We are concerned by clashes involving pastoralists and local farmers of all faiths. We judge that the best approach is to raise our concerns bilaterally at State and Federal government levels. We welcome President Buhari's commitment to focus on assisting the affected communities, bring perpetrators to justice and examine longer-term peaceful solutions to the conflict.
