Miyetti Allah: PDP furious over threat to Saraki
Thu, 23 Aug 2018
ipples caused by the call on Dr. Bukola Saraki to throw in the towel as president of the Senate or be forced out is not in a hurry to settle, as the national leadership of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), yesterday, disowned its Benue State coordinator, Garus Gololo.
This is even as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) demanded his immediate arrest and prosecution for treason.

The MACBAN leader had on Tuesday, in Makurdi, reportedly threatend that Saraki would be forced out of office as President of the Senate if he refused to leave voluntarily, for treason.

Gololo claimed the senate president had created numerous problems for the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and therefore should go.

But Baba Uthman Ngelzarma, the group’s National Secretary, said in a statement, yesterday, that Gololo spoke in his personal capacity and had no mandate to speak on behalf of the association.

“Miyetti Allah is a non-partisan association with no interest in the political terrain and we couldn’t meddle into the affairs of political actors thereby compounding our already obvious challenges. I therefore urge all and sundry to disregard his statement.

“It is not from MACBAN and should be disregarded in its entirety. We take exception on this statement and Garus Gololo is entirety on his own and will be sanctioned accordingly.

“We cannot afford to add up to the many challenges we are confronted with. I’m therefore appealing to the general public to disregard this statement as it is coming from someone who doesn’t have the mandate of the association to speak on its behalf.”

Reacting, PDP gave President Muhammadu Buhari 24 hours to arrest and prosecute the Miyetti Allah helmsman over threat to force out Saraki from office if he failed to resign.

The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, said if President Buhari failed to take a decisive action over the “treasonable and inciting utterances,” Nigerians would, henceforth, hold him directly responsible for the utterances and actions of the group.

The opposition party stated that the utterances of the Miyetti Allah echoes threats by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and agents of the Presidency to force Saraki out of office as Senate President, describing it as “ominous and revealing.”
“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, Nasarawa, Plateau, Kaduna, Edo, Borno, Yobe, Enugu, Kogi, Adamawa and other states, 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, majority of Nigerians suspects 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.
