Miyetti Allah Says It’s Not Responsible For Farmer-Herdsmen Clashes
Garus Gololo, the coordinator of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Benue State, has told the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar that he is not fit to be Nigeria’s president.
He also slammed Atiku, telling him Fulani herdsmen in the country are not killers adding that such statement was incisive and capable of causing disunity in the country.
Gololo was reacting to a statement by one of the media aides of Atiku, Phrank Shaibu, who had earlier in the week, submitted that there would be more killing of farmers by suspected Fulani herdsmen if President Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected in 2019.
“We Fulani herdsmen are not killers and before Buhari came to power, there were crisis between farmers and herders in Benue, Tarawa, Nasarawa, Adamawa and some other states.
“I am disappointed in Atiku because he had already divided Nigeria even when he has not come to power. Buhari has nothing to do with herdsmen, he is a Nigerian and it is the people of Nigeria that voted him into power and l believe they will still vote him again in 2019.”
“Nigerians should ask Atiku about the N68.8bn proceeds from NEPA which he sold when he superintended over the privatisation process of the then NEPA.
“People should talk about the power plants or the money he raised from the sale of that public asset. As far as I am concerned, Atiku is not a credible candidate to contest the coming presidential election in Nigeria because he is so sentimental and if they vote him in as president, he would divide Nigeria the more.
“So, for us Fulanis, we are not killers, neither are we criminals nor kidnappers and President Buhari has nothing to do with herdsmen. It is the people of Nigeria who voted Buhari in 2015 and they will still vote him .The crisis between farmers and herdsmen is a common thing everywhere across the world it is not peculiar to Nigeria,” Gololo said.
