Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Nasarawa State, Bishop Joseph Masin has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to initiate measures to ensure peaceful coexistence between farmers and herdsmen.
Speaking in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia on Sunday, Masin said.
“Yes, he can do it. He is the president of Nigeria. I believe he will find a way to resolve the problems between them.
“As for us in CAN, we have committed all the problems to God. That is one of the ways we can assist our leaders,” he said.
He urged Nigerians not to condemn government’s slow pace in resolving the crisis, saying the situation demanded careful analysis and peaceful resolution so as to avert a recurrence.
“Nigeria is a multicultural and religious country. Mr President has to take time to analyse the situation, put in place all that is necessary so that people will understand that he is not taking sides with any group or religion,” Masin said.
