Miyetti Allah asks Nigerians to reject Atiku

Miyetti Allah asks Nigerians to reject Atiku

Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a group of cattle breeders, has asked Nigerians to vote against Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), during the election.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Abdullahi Bodejo, national president of the group, accused Atiku of alleged hatred for Fulani.

Bodejo said Atiku ought to be stripped of wazirin Adamawa, a prestigious traditional title.

“We are calling on HRM the Lamido of Adamawa to strip Atiku Abubakar of his title as Waziri Adamawa for his open hatred for the Fulani pastoralist and surrounding himself with ethnic and merchants that have been profiling the Fulani race and calling for their genocide,” the president said.

“We are consequently directing all our members nationwide and other Fulani groups  to embark on massive campaign against the presidential aspiration of Atiku Abubakar because he does not mean well for the pastoralist and the country.”

Bodejo also faulted the recent report of Amnesty International on farmers-herders clashes in the country.

The report said a total of 3,641 Nigerians have been killed in conflict between herdsmen and farmers since January 2016.

Bodejo said Atiku is “feasting and capitalising on the report with the view to  garnering political capital from the farmers-herders conflict.”

He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to instruct the security agencies to monitor Atiku “considering his volatile and inciting statement he made against herders.”

In December, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) endorsed Buhari’s second term bid.
