Alhaji Lawal Musa-Nagogo, Emir of Nasarawa State has expressed worry over the ongoing clash between herdsmen and farmers in the State and across the country. He said that such act is very wrong.
He made this known in his palace in Wamba, Wamba Local Government Area of the state, while addressing some Muslim faithfuls who came to honor the Sallah celebration.
He also advised local farmers affected by the tragic mishap not to take matters into their hands but to report to the right authorities to handle the situation.
According to him, “Without peaceful co-existence between the farmers and the herdsmen, agricultural production and the socio-economic development of the country will be affected negatively, hence the need for both of them to embrace one another.”
The Emir, speaking on the interest of national peace and unity, went further to say that no nation can develop in a state of turmoil and crisis, warning that a clash between farmers and herdsmen should be avoided in the nations best interest.
He urged the Muslim faithfuls to show support and pray for all leaders to excel in their national tasks as they remain holy and retain their virtues after the Ramadan holiday.
Alhaji Musa Shuaibu-Wayo, the chairman, Interim Management Committee of Wamba Local Government Area of the state, also preached peace and unity between Muslims and other Nigerians for the interest of development.
“Eid-el–fitr is not only for merry making, but a time to emulate what Prophet Muhammad (SWA) was sent by Almighty God to come and do,” he said.
Prophet Muhammad preaches peace, love and unity and as true followers of Islam we suppose to emulate the same thing so that we can enjoy blessings of God Almighty here and in the hereafter. We must maintain our God-fearing acts which we exhibited during the fasting period by sustaining the lessons and change of attitude, learnt during the Ramadan fast,” he said.
