The Progressive Governors' Forum has called for the engagement of Fulani herdsmen across the country with a view to finding lasting solutions between herdsmen and host communities.

The governors made the call at the end of the forum’s meeting held in Benin on Saturday.

Chairman of the forum and Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who read the forum’s communique urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari in the face of present difficulties and challenges in the country.

While saying the trying moments would soon be over, the forum said that members also deliberated on the forthcoming Ondo elections and the need for the party to field credible candidate.

The forum explained that while the party had constituted a committee for the Ondo election, it disclosed that a national election campaign council had been inaugurated for the Edo election.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that members of the forum also paid a courtesy visit on the Crowned Prince of Benin Kingdom, Eheneden Eradiauwa, the Edaiken N Uselu.

At the palace, Okorocha said that it was a truism that governance was continuous, hence the need for a successful governor to have a good a successor.

He noted that since the present administration in the state was about to end, hence the need to introduce the party’s standard bearer to the palace.

The governor further said that they were in the palace for royal blessings for the candidate.

In his response, the Crowned Prince acknowledged and appreciated the performance of Oshiomhole.

The monarch restated that what the palace wants a candidate that would put food on the table of the masses.

He said the palace would continue to pray for all the candidates so that the best would win and wished the APC candidate well in his campaign.
