Miyetti Allah endorses Buhari’s re-election bid


Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the Miyetti  Allah Cattle  Breeders Association of Nigeria, has declared its support for the re-election of  President Muhammadu Buhari.



The endorsement which came during the association’s  5th general meeting in Abuja on Thursday, had in attendance over 2,000 of its members from different parts of the country.



The National President, MACBAN, Alhaji Muhammadu Kirowa, said the association’s decision to support the President was because “no administration had looked into our plight the way President Buhari has done since inception of the association.”



Kirowa stated  that the President had made significant efforts towards reviving grazing reserves across the country, thereby  impacting directly on the lives of MACBAN members.



He said, “We appreciate government’s programmes of transforming the social lives of Nigerians through empowerment schemes, agricultural development, particularly the livestock sub-sector where pilot programmes of developing water and pasture in long neglected grazing reserves has commenced.”



Speaking earlier, the  National Secretary, MACBAN, Alhaji Baba Ngelzarma, who pledged the association’s continuous loyalty and support for the President, appealed to members of the association to be law-abiding, avoid friction and utterances that were capable of causing chaos in the country.



He also appealed to the media to avoid labelling herdsmen as “killers and unwanted citizens.”



Ngelzarma said, “MACBAN frowns on the sensational and negative stereotyping of herders who are doing legitimate economic activity that contributes to the gross domestic product of the country and ensuring food security.



“We represent over 20 million members across the country, here in attendance we have over 2,000 people who have come from all corners of the country. We  have representatives from each local governments, and you heard their views; they have declared their interest in President Muhammadu Buhari to move to the next level.”



“This is a majority decision of the congress, we as leaders, don’t have an option  but to follow,” he added.



In a related development, a former Military Governor of Lagos State, Buba Marwa, said that all those aspiring to occupy Aso Presidential Villa should wait till 2023, as President Buhari would be returned to power in 2019.



Marwa made the declaration while fielding questions from journalists on Thursday in Yola.



Marwa, who is the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Drugs, said he was confident that Buhari would defeat other presidential candidates in the 2019 election.



“Buba Marwa Organisation is the first to organise a rally in support of President Buhari in 2016, because Buhari have done very well in three areas of economy, security and fight against corruption.



“He will return for the second time by the grace of God. I have no doubt about this and all those vying for Aso Villa should wait till 2023,” Marwa said.
