buharisallau – PLEASE CONVINCE YOUR PEOPLE THAT WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO SOLVE ATTACKS BY ARMED HERDSMEN – PRESIDENT BUHARI APPEALS TO BENUE STAKEHOLDERS

 

President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to leaders of various groups in Benue State to convince their constituents that the Federal Government is doing its best to end the recurring attacks by armed herdsmen in various parts of the country.
