British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, has revealed that Prince Charles of England will be visiting Nigeria on Tuesday to address the conflict between herdsmen and farmers.
His visit will be aimed at promoting peace and resolving the lingering crisis between both parties in the country.
“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.
“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.” Paul said.
Arkwright said that the root causes of conflicts, if tackled, would lead to a peaceful and more prosperous Nigeria. He also stated that it will be of benefit to the relations between Nigeria and Britain as members of the commonwealth.
Arkwright further said said that the other events lined up on the agenda would focus on culture, music, fashion, among others.
“Prince Charles will be talking about rural livelihoods, agriculture, the environment, some of the passions that he has which is so relevant to Nigeria today and to young people and the importance of getting young people into jobs.” He added.
