Condemnation Trails Miyetti Allah’s Threat To Saraki
Thu, 23 Aug 2018

Condemnation on Wednesday trailed the threat by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Miyetti Allah had, through its national coordinator in Benue State, Alhaji Garus Gololo, in an interview, warned the President of Senate to resign his position immediately or be forced to do so.

But the National Secretary of the group, Baba Uthman Ngelzarma, has, however, rejected Gololo’s threat, adding that he spoke in his personal capacity since he had no mandate to speak on behalf of the association.

Regardless, the PDP reacted swiftly on Wednesday, slamming the Fulani herdsmen group for the threat.

It gave President Muhammadu Buhari 24 hours to arrest and commence the trial of leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association.

In a statement by its Spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said Miyetti Allah had always represented the military wing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Buhari presidency, describing the statement by the group’s official as treasonable and inciting.

“In the light of these treasonable and inciting utterances by Miyetti Allah, we demand that President Muhammadu Buhari should, within the next 24 hours, order the arrest and commence immediate trial of the leadership of this group, otherwise Nigerians will henceforth hold him directly responsible for the utterances and actions of the Miyetti Allah,” the party said.

The party said the outburst by Miyetti Allah echoed the threats of APC and agents of the Buhari presidency to force out Saraki.

According to the PDP, “If anything, this unguarded statement by Miyetti Allah has exposed the synergy between the ruling party and some troublesome elements who are being used to stoke division and create violent crisis that had resulted into daily bloodlettings in various parts of the country.

“It is now abundantly clear to Nigerians that those fomenting crisis, including the bloody clashes in Benue, Taraba, Zamfara, Nassarawa, Plateau, Kaduna, Edo, Borno, Yobe, Enugu, Kogi, Adamawa and other states in our country, have political backers, who now want to channel them to achieve their unpatriotic quest to subvert our constitution and forcefully take over the National Assembly.

“Before now, to majority of Nigerians, the Miyetti Allah has always represented the military wing of the APC and the Buhari presidency. It is incontrovertible that they have now become the fourth arm of government that can determine when and how to forcefully remove the number three citizen, the President of the Senate.

“It is common knowledge that Mr. President has come under heavy public criticisms on how his body language has condoned the unguarded utterances and actions of these characters.”

The party, which said it was aware that Miyetti Allah did not represent the views and interests of the vast majority of cattle breeders or even any ethnic group in the country, urged all good spirited Nigerians to rise in condemnation of the actions and utterances of “these misguided elements, who are being used to attempt a constitutional breach that portends grave danger to national cohesion and our hard-earned democracy.”

In its reaction, also on Wednesday, the Benue State government noted that the tone of Miyetti Allah’s statement and that of APC was an indication that they had the same agenda.

The state government expressed this view in Makurdi in a statement by Terver Akase, Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Governor Samuel Ortom.
