PEACE FROM BRITAIN?! Prince Charles To Address Farmers-Herdsmen Crisis
The eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles is coming to Nigeria on Tuesday.
During his visit, he would address the clashes between farmers and herders as part of his peace-building activity.
The prince of Wales and his wife Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, are expected to be in Nigeria from November 6 to November 8.
He last visited Nigeria in 2006.
“People do want to come together and if we can provide that kind of environment then hopefully, we can come up with some ideas and solutions to resolving some of these conflicts,” said British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright.
“Some of the issues like the farmers/herders’ crisis are deep-rooted and are about the economy, land resource, climate change and cultural issues.
“The Prince of Wales will be looking at the causes, talking to people who are working in this area and together, seeing if we can find solutions and move on,” Arkwright said.
Arkwright said addressing the root causes of conflicts would lead to a peaceful and more prosperous country and also become beneficial to the relations between Nigeria and Britain.
He added that the visit was also aimed at strengthening the existing ties between both Commonwealth countries.
