Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State says the prevailing security challenges in the country will end abruptly if the lead and the led work towards that.

He made the observation in Abuja while speaking with newsmen on his closed-door meeting with President Buhari.

Governor Fayemi said their major concern was the farmers-herders crises, saying however that many states had now been focusing on the National Livestock Transformation Plan, which would confine herders to dedicated spaces to avoid factors breeding conflicts between them.

The Governor acknowledged the resilience of the President in restoring peace, unity, and development calling on the citizenry to appreciate that by joining in the fight, in their own little ways, against crime.

On the autonomy of local governments and the judiciary, Governor Kayode said they still support the issue, but that they needed to fine-tune areas of disagreement.

The NGF said their objection was the Executive Order issued by the President to enforce it, since the issue is constitutional in nature.

Governor Kayode also advised the president of the National Union of Local Government Employees to instead table their concerns before members of the Constitutional Review Committee, rather than issue threats.
