The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, Bauchi State, on Tuesday called on President Buhari to intervene in the crises rocking the country.
This was contained in a press conference by the MACBAN Chairman, Bauchi State, Alhaji Sadiq Ibrahim at the Press Centre of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ.
He pleaded with President Buhari to call some Governors and leaders to order, stating the statement they are making shows they want to cause chaos and crises in the country.
“The position of our state council on these issues is to call on the President to quickly address those leaders who are violating the constitution by disenfranchising on the fundamental rights of some particular members of the society.
“The statements made by the these leaders are a clear indication that the unity of Nigeria is at stake and can only be protected by Mr President,” the MACBAN state chairman said.
He specifically mentioned the Governors of Ekiti, Benue, Taraba and Oyo States and asked President Buhari to sanction them.
“We will continue to educate and enlighten our members to continue to be law abiding but should lawfully reject any attempt by a group of tribes in Nigeria trying to control and instigate violence in a united Nigeria.”
While expressing support for Governor Bala Mohammed on his statement that Fulani Herdsmen were forced to protect themselves from attacks, warned that farmers under the MACBAN umbrella would be asked to stop food supply to the Southern part of the country.
“We support the executive governor of Bauchi State that once the lives and properties of citizens are in danger, we have no option than protecting ourselves.
“We warn that when these issues continue to linger, we will advise our members who produce animals and foodstuff to stop the transportation of such food items to the South.”
