Sheik Gumi urges FG to establish Nomadic ministry for herdsmen

Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has said that as part of efforts to stop the lingering crisis of banditry and terrorism in the country, the Federal government should establish the Ministry of Nomadic Affairs.

According to him, the ministry would help to address the grievances of bandits and herders just as the government did to curtail the activities of the Niger Delta militants.

Speaking at a conference on Wednesday, Gumi while speaking to journalists, said

“Government should focus more attention on these people because they always say that they are aggrieved. What I expect from the government is nothing less than what it did, when the Niger Delta youth were vandalizing the economy.

These people are also disturbing the Nigerian agriculture which is the backbone of the national economy. I think the government needs to be more proactive; they need attention; the least they need is the Ministry of Nomadic Affairs that will look into their affairs,” he said.
