Emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris, has in his Sallah message said that Nigerians are facing hardship.
He said this at his palace in Zaria, Kaduna State, that the nation needs intervention at the federal and state levels, Igbere TV reports.
“The suffering requires the attention and assistance of the governments at both federal and state levels,” the monarch said.
Emir Idris called on Fulani herdsmen and farmers to live in harmony to avoid further clashes.
He said: “Similarly, we are urging our people to continue to promote peaceful coexistence. Fulani herdsmen and farmers should respect the interest of one another. People are also urged to avoid rumour-mongering and give maximum cooperation to security agents.
“Kaduna state, local governments and the house of assembly should take measures that would bring about development in the areas of agriculture, animal husbandry and education.
“If these sectors are giving necessary attention, they are capable of bringing about peaceful coexistence and the end effect is improvement in the lives of our people.”
