Food Security: AFAN Calls For End To Farm-Herder Conflicts

The All Farmers Association of Nigeria, AFAN, is calling on President Bola Tinubu to address farm-herder conflicts across the country in order to achieve food security.

The call was made by the AFAN National President, Mr. Ibrahim Kabir, who says the act will require strong political will.

The AFAN National President described the farmer-herder conflict as a serious threat factor to the productivity of smallholder farmers whom he says are the actual engine room of production in Nigeria.

He said any effort to mitigate the incessant conflict would be a welcome development.

Mr Kabir also said the agricultural sector demands action that will galvanise it for immediate production, distribution and affordability.

He described the livestock sector as a major industry in the agricultural space which needs attention to ensure the farmers engaged in it and those along the value chain are carried along.
