    Food Security: Veteran Actor Lere Paimo urges South-West Governors to Control Herders’ Activities

    A Veteran Yoruba actor, Lere Paimo, aka Eda Onile Ola, has urged South West governors to collaborate and take measures to restraint killer herdsmen to ensure food security in the region. Paimo, the Oyo Stateborn Nollywood actor and a National Awards holder, who made the plea in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Lagos, spoke on the way out of the current socio-economic, inflation and food crisis in the country.

    The octogenarian said that with adequate security, infrastructure, and motivation for farmers, the South-West has the capacity to feed its people and the entire nation. “Let every South-West governor control activities of herders, who always clash with farmers. This has sent many away from their ancestral farms, and the attendant hunger is staring us in the face.

    “The herders have brought a lot of losses to many farmers by making their cattle to feed on farms while some farmers have also lost their lives in the process. Many have left their farms over this. “This is very bad. Each governor has the authority and power in their various states to ensure that herders are tamed for people to have confidence to go back to farm without fear of any loss.”
