He said the government was working round the clock to curtail the problem through the establishment of grazing reserves and stock routes across the state.

The governor also promised to provide breeders with necessary social amenities to make life more meaningful.

He cautioned the farmers and the herdsmen against any clash with host communities, adding they should respect their hosts traditions and culture for peaceful co-existence.

Adamu praised the governor for carrying them along in his administration.

He sought government's assistance to enable them overcome the problem of kidnapping of their kinsmen and the menace of cattle rustlers among others.

Adamu also appealed to the government to include them in its soft loan designed for Small and Medium Enterprises.
