Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari was present in body and in spirit during the graduation ceremony of Course 24 participants of the National Defence College Abuja Nigeria today Friday 5 August 2016. During his speech, the commander-in-chief promised to deal with the issue of rampaging killing of people around the country by Fulani herdsmen.
“On the matter of Herdsmen/Farmers clashes, I wish to state that this Administration will not tolerate or condone acts of banditry and criminality, under any guise. As such, our security agencies have been mandated to deal with such acts decisively.
“Let me state that this Administration has been working assiduously in conjunction with our local and international partners, to rebuild damaged communities in North East part of our country.
“Similarly, we are committed to tackling the issues of underdevelopment and neglect in the Niger Delta area. This is a priority we have set before us and we intend to make appreciable gains in correcting the ills of the past in the Niger Delta by assuaging inherent grievances.”
