Concerned Fulani Leaders (CFL) have expressed their disagreement with the recent endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) saying the laws guiding the affairs of the association do not allow it to dabble into partisan politics.
According to a report in Daily Trust, Chairman of the group, Senator Walid Jibrin, who spoke with newsmen in Kaduna, said neither the executives nor the national chairman of Miyetti Allah could take a major decision without consulting and seeking the consent of members of the board of trustees and patrons of the association.
He said, “Such decision taken recently by the association without the knowledge of the BOT and patrons and majority of registered members is an anarchy and disrespect and amounts to dragging our paramount rulers into politics.”
Jibrin, who is also the Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees, said Miyetti Allah owed the Sultan of Sokoto, Emir of Kano, Emir of Katsina, Emir of Zazzau and Lamido Adamawa apologies for being ignorant of the rules guiding the association and for not running the MACBAN for the full benefit of members.
The ‘Sarkin Yakin Dangawa Yaan Tumaki’ of Katsina, also disclosed that Concerned Fulani groups and Ardos and members of MACBAN who were not in support of the Miyetti Allah decision would soon meet to counter the stand.(Daily Trust)
