Farmers, herdsmen pledge peaceful coexistence in Plateau By Dickson S. Adama, Jos | Published Date Feb 13, 2020 1:18 AM TwitterFacebookWhatsAppTelegram Farmers and herdsmen in Plateau State have pledged to live in peace with one another and do all they could to halt hostilities that have been costing lives and properties. The pledge from both parties came at the end of days of peace mediation workshop for Community Initiatives to Promote Peace (CIPP) funded by USAID through a consortium, led by Mercy Corps, including the African Radio Drama Association (ARDA), Interfaith Mediation Centre (IMC), Pastoral Resolve (PARE) and Savannah Center for Diplomacy Democracy & Development (SCDDD). One of the herdsmen, who spoke to our correspondent, Lawan Jibril Adamu, from Barkin Ladi local government area, said they learned a lot at the interactive session which has boosted the understanding between farmers and herdsmen. He said farmers and herders have a lot in common and peaceful coexistence would not only bring about peace but would boost the economy of the nation since farmers and pastoralists (herdsmen) are the agricultural base of the country.
