The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has dissociated itself from a Fulani Group that purchased aspiration form for immediate past president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Mouthpiece NGR reports.
While reacting to the endorsement of GEJ ahead of the 2023 election,
MACABAN in a statement obtained by our correspondent on Monday night in Kaduna said they are not party to the charade.
The statement signed by Abdulbasid Bonga, Protem National Secretary of Concerned Registered Members of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), maintained that the Fulani group led by one Ibrahim Abdullahi from Kaduna is not a member of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), neither is he a member of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Fulani Socio-Cultural Association,”
It added that Ibrahim Abdullahi, is a factional National Secretary of Gan Allah Fulani Development Association (GAFDAN).
“He did this on his own, not under the Fulani communities or Association Nigeria.
“We the entire registered members and officials of Fulani Association including all the stakeholders dissociate ourselves from this move,” it added.
The group pointed out that although, they don’t have anything against GEJ, but it is not their collective decision to endorse or purchase any nomination forms to “ASPIRANTS” in Nigeria.
“What we are after is the unity, integration and harmony between the Fulani communities and the farming communities, while expecting the security agencies to deal with bandits and criminals at all nooks and corners of our thick forests,” it added.
The group however, appealed to its members across the country to remain law abiding and should not allow themselves to be used as agents of provocateurs.
It reminded that MACBAN remains apolitical and non partisan.
