Other speakers at the conference called for the immediate halt in the killings of Fulanis and other ethnic nationalities nationwide. They had also called on governments to redouble efforts in eliminating criminal elements that has distracted governance and continuously threatened the peace and unity of our country. 

In a concluding speech by an international media Consultant from the United States of America, he stated that Nigerians remains the problem of Nigeria.
