Kano State Government said it will create a system to count Fulani Herdsmen and household owners in the state.
Director General Bureau of Statistic, Baballe Ammani stated this in an interview with Correspondent, Abdulkadir Haladu Kiyawa.
Ammani said it’s imperative to tackle the security challenges facing Northern part of the country, and to improve means of livelihood.
Earlier on, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje built Ruga Settlement for Fulani Herdsmen purposely to bring an end to the traditional system of going to the southern part of this country, which comes with challenges.
“You see Fulani community in Kano tried well to gather themselves, bury their particular differences to confront His Excellency Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, to over look what he can do to improves the system in which they are operating, help their children to attain highest level in life as every Nigerian.
“He agreed and ordered us to conduct the census, that will give chance for Government to know actually what they can to assist their plight”, Baballe Ammani said.
The Director General Bureau of Statistic also noted that census of household will be conducted too, to know the actual number of Kano residents especially when it comes to developmental projects.
“You know targeting social amenities to a community is not easy if you didn’t predict the number of populace, with this we’ll achieve more in the remaining years we have”, Ammani stated.
It’s no more a news Herdsmen and Farmers clash in the country, ethnic or religions problem that lead to the killing of both parties, loss of wealth amongst others.
