The Bauchi State chapter of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore on Wednesday took a swipe at the Northern Governors Forum and Emirs over their stance on power shift in 2023 but showed a lackadaisical attitude towards the predicaments of the Fulani tribe in the country.

 

The chairman of the association, Muhammad Hussaini, lamented that the Kaduna meeting failed to take into cognizance the humiliation that herders are subjected to on grazing reserves in the Southern parts of the country, especially by powers that are infringing on their rights of movement and association.

 

Speaking with journalists in Bauchi at the end of the herders meeting to review treatments being meted to their kinsmen in the South, Hussaini said it was disheartening that the governors and emirs, who were representatives, met to discuss issues affecting the region, without deliberating on the plight of Fulani herders.

 

He said Fulani herders, who were searching for greener pasture for their animals, were being humiliated, maimed and even killed outright in the southern parts of the country, while their movements are being restricted in their North contrary to the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution.

 

He expressed surprise that the northern governors and emirs could only bother themselves about political issues such as power shift between the country’s regions to the detriment of the lives of their people or subjects.

 

“Instead of the Northern governors showing concern to the forms of treatment or copulation on herders by the Southern governors, they simply sat and discussed issues of personal vendetta without recourse to the people they governed.

 

“For this, we condemn in totality the Northern Governors Forum meeting with Emirs in attendance. They sat to discuss their self-aggrandize motives leveraging on ways and means to enrich themselves to the impairment of the people,” Hussaini said.

 

He added that the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government was not helping matters on issues affecting the Fulani, especially the nomadic herders, who he said were only preoccupies by looking for greener pastures for their animals.
