Buhari Steps Down As Chairman Of Niger Basin Authority

Fulani herdsmen have been attacking rural villages in many states, placing pressure on the President as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, who has responsibility for the country’s centralized security system.

President Muhammadu Buhari has encouraged governors not to wait for him to solve all of their problems, instead urging them to put an end to herdsman attacks in their states.

Fulani herdsmen have been attacking rural villages in many states, placing pressure on the President as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, who has control over the country’s centralized security apparatus.
