Cable News reports that he also said “We told him (Buhari) many things but part of it is that we are all looking for solution to issues of the herdsmen, issue of vandalism on security in one way or the other.

“This is because the people are asking us and we want to have explanation for the people whom we lead.

‎”He gave us detailed explanations of what he is doing to ensure that these things are solved. So, we have hope, we have message for our people.”
