Northern Governors To Settle Ortom, Mohammed Feud

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Northern Governors Forum says that it will intervene in the rift between two of its governors, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, and his Benue State counterpart, Samuel Ortom.

It would be  recalled that the two governors have engaged in a rift over the issue of  open grazing and Fulani herdsmen carrying AK-47 for protection.

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, confirmed this development while speaking with newsmen, at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, in Abuja, on Thursday.

Responding to a question, he said, “I just left Kaduna, we had a meeting of the Northern State Governors, Bauchi State Governor, Benue Governor was there, it will be sorted out, it could be differences in option. It is not fundamental.

“We are all committed to solving the problem of movement up and down by the herders because once we solve that problem, the clashes between farmers and herders will reduce significantly.

“It will be sorted out, there will always be differences in opinion but not fundamental. The Northern State Governors Forum is committed to end the normadic movement of cattle and people in the shortest possible time and we are all working.”
