President Muhammadu Buhari has identified poverty, injustice and the lack of job opportunities as being mainly responsible for inter-communal and intra-communal conflicts in Nigeria.

Speaking yesterday in Abuja while receiving a delegation from the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, an organisation active in the promotion of peace in Nigeria, Buhari said that to achieve enduring peace in the country, greater effort must be made to eradicate poverty and injustice.

He described ethnic and religious conflicts in parts of the country as outward manifestations of underlying problems of joblessness, injustice and poverty.

On conflicts between farmers and herdsmen, Buhari said that a plan to map out grazing areas will soon be presented to the Nigerian Governors Forum as a temporary solution until cattle owners are persuaded to adopt other means of rearing their cattle.

The President commended the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue for the relative peace that had returned to Plateau State as well as their on-going activity in Southern Kaduna.

He agreed with the Centre that dialogue was always preferable to the use of law and order mechanisms and force in the resolution of conflicts.

Executive Director of the Centre, David Harland, had told President Buhari that following their success in facilitating the settlement of the inter-ethnic and inter-religious conflicts in Plateau State, the group had moved to Kaduna State.

He expressed the hope that the techniques used in bringing peace to Plateau State can soon be deployed to deal with the Boko Haram insurgency and other conflicts in Nigeria.
