According to her, the large number of cattle breeders entering the state from various parts of the country calls for caution and orderliness so that the state will continue to enjoy its peaceful and harmonious relationship among all residents.

"This meeting is organised because of the influx of our people from various parts of the country and beyond who are running for safety due to crisis between farmers and Fulani's in their former abodes".

"l call on all Fulanis presently residing in the state to demonstrate peaceful and harmonious relationship with everybody to sustain the peace and harmony the state is known for," Aliyu-Baruten said.

She expressed her gratitude to AbdulRazaq for investing heavily on the sustenance of peace and security in the state.

Aliyu-Baruten advised all cattle breeders residing in the state to shun promoters of violence or criminal activities and urged law enforcement agents to deal with anybody caught committing crime.

The representative of the state governor at the meeting and former senator representing Kwara South senatorial district, Sen. Suleiman Ajadi, attributed all negative acts being perpetrated by cattle breeders to external influence.
