Herdsmen/farmers crisis: Scientist proffers solution

A young Nigerian Laboratory Scientist, Kabir Musa, has conducted a comprehensive research that can help solve the persistent herdsmen/farmers crisis that is bedeviling the country.

This is even as he seeks to have  audience with President Muhammadu Buhari so that he can present his findings to him.

He stated this during a media briefing held at the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Kaduna State Secretariat recently.

According to him, he was worried about the numerous challenges created by herdsmen/farmers crisis that has now even taken ethno-religious dimension, and this prompted him to dig deep to his decision which has rewarded him with the document he has come up with.

“What I have done is a research that is an improvement on other researchers conducted in the past, which if adopted and implemented, will solve the present economic recession and diversify our economy,” he said.

He illustrated with the aid of a projector, capturing an example of a research conducted by the National Animal Production Research Institute (NAPRI), Shika.

In the said research which was conducted over 30 years ago by a team of scholars, several recommendations on how to improve the yield and health of cattle and livestock were made.

Musa said he was optimistic that Nigeria was blessed enough to sustain itself and even export to other countries, hence, the findings of his research holds a key to several problems bedeviling the country, with the farmers/herdsmen clashes being one of the issues.

He appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to grant him audience, stressing that the entire country would be better off if his work was adopted.

When asked if he had made any previous attempts to see the President but failed, he didn’t respond, but was optimistic that Nigeria would be great again soon.
