Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees, Sen. Walid Jibrin, has condemned the atrocious activities of herdsmen in the country.
While leading members of the board on a courtesy visit to Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia at Government House, Umuahia, the chairman noted the roles Nigerians had to play in ending the menace.
He said every Nigerian must participate in promoting and supporting national peace, unity and any cause that would encourage peaceful coexistence in the country.
His words: “We are working together to contribute to efforts targeted at addressing herdsmen activities. We are coming to bring an end to it.
“We are making arrangements for Fulani leaders to come together to address the issue so that the nation’s unity will be preserved.
“It is very sad to see people in this kind of activities. It is not in the nature of many of us and we are not in support of it.”
Gov. Ikpeazu, who was on Wednesday sworn in for his second tenure as Governor, thanked the board for its support to his administration.
He also hailed the board for its resolve and resilience in handling the affairs of the party to enable it to wax stronger.
Speaking on his second tenure, he assured that he will promote causes that would bring respect to PDP, adding that he would not disappoint the party or people of Abia in his second tenure.
