By Eloyi Matthew
Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State has met with the Fulani community in the state, reassuring them of fair treatment and urging them to work with the government and other stakeholders to prevent crimes and guarantee peace and security for all.
This was contained in a Press statement signed by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Rafiu Ajakaye  after the meeting in Ilorin.
 “The Fulani in Kwara, like other communities in the state, will receive government’s protection and patronage in terms of infrastructure projects and social security programs,” said the Governor.
The meeting was attended by Fulani leaders and representatives from across the 16 local government areas of the state.
It came a few weeks after the Governor held consultative meetings with traditional rulers and grassroots influencers focusing on peaceful coexistence and security.

AbdulRazaq said the meeting was to forge a consensus on how to manage the herders-farmers’ relationship amid ultimatums on cattle grazing in some southern states and mass movement of herders to the north, especially Kwara.
