The Miyetti Allah Kautl Hore, the Fulani socio-cultural organisation, Bauchi State chaper, has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar for second term in the 2019 general election.
President Buhari and Governor Abubakar were endorsed at a meeting of
the organisation held at Zaranda Hotel, in Bauchi.
In his remarks, the Bauchi State chairman of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Hon. Garba Saleh, said that they endorsed Buhari because he brought progress and peace in Nigeria.
A letter of endorsement of President Buhari was later given to Governor Mohammed Abubakar by the organisation for onward delivery to President Buhari.
Also speaking, the patron of Bauchi chapter of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bappa Aliyu Misau said that they endorsed President Buhari and Governor Abubakar because of their performance in the last two years despite challenges.
“Our association’s endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Mohammed Abubakar based on their good performances in
office,” he said.
Aliyu Misau dismissed allegations being levelled against the Fulani cattle breeders in the crises affecting some states in the country which he said were being fomented to blackmail president Muhammadu Buhari and his administration.
He said that the peace and security being enjoyed in areas that were hitherto having security challenges is one of the major achievements of the president.
“The fact that we can now enter our worship places of Mosques and Churches being bodily combed by any security trap is a testimony of security of lives and property which President Buhari assured Nigerians during his electioneering campaigns and an unprecedented
achievement ever by any leader,” Aliyu said.
Speaking, Governor Abubakar commended members of the Fulani Socio-cultural organisation for recognising the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements as well as that of his administration in the state.
Abubakar accused some people of fomenting trouble and blaming only Fulanis for the current clashes between farmer and herders in various parts of the country.
He informed that a research sponsored by Bauchi state government is ongoing by a Chinese firm on special specie of grass that can grow even in deserts which will be grown so that the Fulani cows can graze.
The governor further added that the state government would also build earth dams and boreholes for the Fulani cattle breeders to water their cows. (The Sun)
