Stakeholders must cooperate to solve Fulani herdsmen menace
Nkawkaw, June 23, GNA -The Nkawkaw Divisional
Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of
Police, (ACP) Michael Avadetsi, has called for
concerted efforts to solve the Fulani herdsmen
He, therefore, urged chiefs, farmers, the District
Assemblies, and land owners in the area to
cooperate to find amicable solutions to the Fulani
herdsmen issues to ensure peace in the area.
ACP Avadetsi said this at a media briefing at
Nkawkaw on Friday to introduce himself to the
people as the newly posted Divisional Commander.
He advised the Fulani herdsmen to control their
cattle and prevent them from destroying farmers'
crops, their main source of livelihood.
On the December Polls, the Divisional Commander
advised leaders of the various political parties
to educate their supporters to tolerate the views
of their opponents.
He also advised the media, especially the
electronic media, to avoid inflammatory comments
and unsubstantiated allegations because the
majority of people believe that what is said on
their various radio stations is the truth.
ACP Avadetsi urged the youth to take their
education seriously to enable them to be gainfully
employed in the future.
