Alhaji Garus Gololo, who’s the national coordinator of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Benue State, has said that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate would divide the country if elected to the seat of power.
The Miyetti Allah Boss was responding to Phrank Shuaibu‘s comment on Thursday where he claimed there would be more killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen if President Muhammadu Buhari is re-elected the president.
He said Atiku was wrong that not only Fulani herdsmen is causing the issues with farmers in Nigeria.
In his statement:
“We Fulani herdsmen are not killers and before Buhari came to power, there were crisis between farmers and herders in Benue, Tarawa, Nasarawa, Adamawa and some other states.
“I am disappointed in Atiku because he had already divided Nigeria even when he has not come to power. Buhari has nothing to do with herdsmen, he is a Nigerian and it is the people of Nigeria that voted him into power and l believe they will still vote him again in 2019.
“Nigerians should ask Atiku about the N68.8bn proceeds from NEPA which he sold when he superintended over the privatisation process of the then NEPA.
“People should talk about the power plants or the money he raised from the sale of that public asset.
He also accused the fomer vice president, Atiku, of being so sentimental and that he would divide Nigeria if voted to power.
“So, for us Fulanis, we are not killers, neither are we criminals nor kidnappers and President Buhari has nothing to do with herdsmen.
He also asked Atiku if the killer herdsmen were also responsible for killing of farmers during his term as the vice president.
“The crisis between farmers and herdsmen is a common thing everywhere across the world it is not peculiar to Nigeria.”
The people that voted Buhari as the president in 2015 will still vote him in 2019 and that there was nothing to worry about he concluded.
