Zuba chief tasks herders, farm­ers on peace

Daily Trust - - ASO CHRONICLE - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The Agora of Zuba, Al­haji Mo­hammed Bello Umar, has called on farm­ers and herders in his chief­dom to live in peace.

Speak­ing dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of Sal­lah, Satur­day, he urged the farm­ers to re­port any dam­age caused to their crops by herders to their vil­lage chief or district head to re­solve the mat­ter am­i­ca­bly.

He called on par­ents, es­pe­cially moth­ers, to teach their children moral val­ues, say­ing that moth­ers have more re­spon­si­bil­ity in the so­cial­i­sa­tion of children.

“I be­lieve that if a mother can give a child good train­ing and the child grows up with it, such child will be­come use­ful in fu­ture and con­trib­ute to the devel­op­ment of the so­ci­ety,” he said.

He ad­vised youth to ac­quire both west­ern and Is­lamic knowl­edge so that they can be bet­ter placed to con­trib­ute to the devel­op­ment of the so­ci­ety.

The tra­di­tional ruler, there­fore, called on the au­thor­i­ties of the coun­cil and the FCT Ad­min­is­tra­tion to pro­vide ameni­ties with direct bear­ing on the lives of peo­ple of the area.
