Prince Charles to address herdsmen attacks during Nigeria visit, says envoy

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Paul Arkwright, announced in Abuja on Sunday that Prince Charles would engage in peace-building activities, including addressing the persistent attacks of herdsmen on farming communities in Nigeria.

The Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall are expected in Nigeria from Nov. 6 to Nov. 8 in a high profile visit during which the royals would also have audience with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) ahead of the visit, Arkwright said that one of the events on the agenda was for Prince Charles to discuss practical solutions to alleviating the tensions, arising from the activities of herdsmen.

Herdsmen have launched a deadly onslaught on farming communities in Nigeria in recent years, raising concerns over the future of agriculture in a nation, having majority of its populace engaged in subsistence agriculture.

“People do want to come together and if we can provide that kind of environment then hopefully, we can come up with some ideas and solutions to resolving some of these conflicts.

“Some of the issues like the farmers/herders crisis are deep-rooted and are about the economy, land resource, climate change and cultural issues.

“The Prince of Wales will be looking at the causes, talking to people who are working in this area and together, seeing if we can find solutions and move on.”

Arkwright said that addressing the root causes of conflicts would lead to a peaceful and more prosperous Nigeria and also become beneficial to the relations between Nigeria and Britain.

He noted that the visit was also aimed at strengthening the existing ties between Nigeria and Britain as members of the Commonwealth.

Prince Charles, who took over as the Head of the 53-member Commonwealth of Nations last April, succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, has already visited 44 African nations.

“Prince Charles has not been here since the past 12 years. 2006 was the last time he was here and the Duchess of Cornwall, has never been to Nigeria. So it is about strengthening ties, particularly people-to-people ties.

“We want to ensure that through the Commonwealth, which is another theme of the prince’s visit, we develop links to develop relationships whether in trade, environment or in education, all of which are important to the future of the Commonwealth and to the future of Nigeria.”

The top diplomat said that other events lined up on the agenda of the visit would focus on culture, music, fashion, among others.

“Prince Charles will be talking about rural livelihoods, agriculture, the environment, some of the passions that he has which is so relevant to Nigeria today and to young people and the impor

  2. Hi guys, I enjoy composing my synthwave music and recently I bumped into a very topical issue, namely how cryptocurrency is going to transform the music industry. I have decided to put together an article on the subject as I would like to inform the musicians and public at large just how cryptocurrencies can be a gamechanger in this field. I would like to donate this article to you for publication on your blog. I have saved the article in my Google drive: I did not have the time to find any images so I would be grateful if you could find and add some. I have also added a little blurb about myself. I hope you and your readers will enjoy reading my article. Have an awesome day! Regards, Tony

  3. Good Afternoon ! I encountered some intriguing news in the crypto currency arena ! Some people in the crypto online community have kindly distributed some insider info that a new crypto coin is presently undergoing the final stages of its formation and, it will be subsidized by the leading US law firms 😀 Purportedly, it is called Lawesome crypto coin! I would be most grateful if anybody into cryptocurrency on this online forum could share the latest updates on this coin. I would especially, like to invest in this coin during the ICO and take part in the bounty hunt to earn some free coins also. However, there is not enough info on this coin as I suspect that it is a being kept hush hush. It is very unforeseen that the law firms are making such a strong entrance into the cryptocurrency area! This interesting move will most certainly offer the cryptocurrency much more soundness and confidence.

  4. Hi! I have bumped into a blog comment on this site (can not find the comment so will create a brand-new one) with some enthusiasm in the Lawesome coin cryptocurrency. I am one of the developers of the Lawesome coin and I can confirm that the Lawesome cryptocurrency is being finalised and will be launched throughout the following week. In the meantime, you can start collecting totally free Lawesome coins by putting up a guest post on I am remarkably overwhelmed by the amount of interest the Lawesome coin has received. I am afraid that I can not divulge any further info about this groundbreaking cryptocurrency right now because of our privacy and NDA agreements with a number of other organizations. Do reply to this comment if you have any questions.
