The Uehra Ashea of Kube Chiefdom in Nasarawa State, Christopher Jatau, has advised farmers and herdsmen in his domain to co-exist peacefully as Benue open grazing prohibition law became effective.

The law has prompted some herdsmen to move their cattle to the neigbouring Nasarawa state.

The traditional rule, who gave the advice in Kube on Wednesday said that such peaceful existence would boost food production in the area.

Socio-economic wellbeing

According to him, it will also enhance the socio-economic wellbeing of the people in particular and the economic development of the state in general.

The Uehra Ashea also urged the people of his chiefdom to continue engaging in agriculture to enhance food production, adding that no society could exist comfortably without agriculture.

Jatau, however, stressed the need for farmers not to sell all their produce for the sake of their households and ensure food security.

He also urged Nigerians to continue to be their brother’s keepers by living in peace and tolerating one another, irrespective of ethnic, religious, political affiliations and other divisive expressions.
