NANS: Ranching Permanent Solution To Herdsmen/Farmers Crisis
***
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has suggested “ranching”, a method of raising livestock under range conditions as the best solution to the incessant Fulani herdsmen/farmers crises in the country.
The apex students body made this known on Friday May 12, 2017, at the Day2 of this year National Security Summit held at the International Conference Centre (ICC) Abuja.
Recall that the recurring clashes between herdsmen and farmers have claimed several lives and rendered thousands of people homeless in the country. NANS differs with the federal government which favours grazing reserves against the popular “cattle range”.
President Kadiri also suggest a ban on “child cattle rearers”, adding that “the education of these children is important to NANS.
“Ranching is the only permanent solution to resolve the recurring clashes between herdsmen and farmers that have claimed several lives and rendered thousands of people homeless”, said President Kadiri.
The crisis according to Kadiri “affect the parents of our students and therefore leading to the premature termination of their education,” suggesting a permanent solution.
“We also suggest a ban on child cattle rearers. The education of these children is important to NANS,” he added. 
In another development, NANS frowned at the increasing rate of unemployment in Nigeria, calling on the federal government to declare a “state of emergency” in the sector.
NANS posited that “unemployment” is the root cause of various forms of insecurity in the country, suggests a joint collaboration to tackled unemployment.
“The productive age of a man is between 15-45. When there are no jobs and no meaningful engagement, this categories of people becomes easy tool for the politicians. So, unemployment which we have identified as the root cause of various forms of insecurity should be addressed,” Kadiri said.
Finally, President Kadiri described the security summit which ended on Friday as a huge success, which he credits to the current leadership of the Nigeria police.
He specifically commended the police boss, IGP Ibrahim Kpotum Idris, for the initiative, promised to join forces with other Nigerians to agitate for the passage of the police Trust Fund Bill in the National Assembly.
Kadiri also commended traditional and religious leaders for supporting the Nigerian Police on the ongoing efforts to find lasting peace in the country.
“Ranching Permanent Solution To Herdsmen/Farmers Crisis,” NANS reiterates.
