Restructure The Country And Let The Fulanis Go Their Way – Miyetti Allah Tells FG

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders association has appealed to the Federal Government to consider the calls of Nigerians to restructuring of the country.

During an interview with Sunday Punch, the National Secretary of the group, Saleh Alhassan alleged that they are being marginalized in the country.

He further stated that if the FG needs to the calls for restructuring, it will enable Fulanis go their way and also know what is theirs. He also wondered if Nigerians think there will be peace when they don’t have access to lands to feed their animals.

He said;

“We don’t support crime. So, I’m not saying there are no Fulani that are criminals, there are, like other tribes, but don’t destroy their profession. It’s not good for the country. If everything busts, it’s to the advantage of the herders because we are not even enjoying the federation.

“We are even bidding for restructuring of the country; let every part go, so we can say this is where we are. As it is now, there is no form of marginalisation we are not seeing in this country. Everywhere we are being marginalised. You think we will accept Nigeria where we don’t have access to land to feed our animals and you think there will be peace?

“Quite fundamentally. If we leave today now and if there is no oil revenue, won’t they pay attention to animal rearing? If we restructure the country and the South-West region says they won’t accept cattle unless they are brought to the market or supermarket, it’s okay by us.

“The mistake people make is that they think when they put pressure on herders they are getting at President (Muhammadu) Buhari. Buhari has no relationship with the herders. That is the truth. When people say he is our grandpatron, was Jonathan from the South-South not our grandpatron?”
