“The Way Fulani Herdsmen Are Being Maltreated In Southern States Is Unacceptable” – Governor Ganduje.
For donkey years, Fulani herdsmen have been living in parts of Nigeria peacefully. But the Fulani herdsmen lost favour with many Nigerians, when some herders entered into criminality, killing, molesting, and kidnapping Nigerians. Because of this, 17 governors of the Southern states in Nigeria decided to ban the open movement of cattle in their various states.
Reacting to the ban on open grazing, the Bauchi state chapter of Miyetti Allah, told all Fulani herdsmen living in the Southern parts of Nigeria to return to Bauchi state.
A Northern governor has joined Miyetti Allah, in advising Fulani herdsmen to return to the North. According to reports, the Governor of Kano state, Umar Abdullahi Ganduje has told all Fulani herdsmen living from Kano state to return, because there is a modern mode of cattle grazing in Kano.
Speaking at the Kano State Government House when he received the Emir of Kano, Governor Umar Ganduje was not happy with the way Fulani herdsmen are being maltreated in the Southern part of Nigeria. He said Fulanis are also Nigerians and do not see any reason, why they are being subjected to hate by the Southerners.
He said, ” However, the way and manner Fulani herders are being subjected to untold maltreatment and agony in the Southern part of this country is not acceptable and this should change because they are equally Nigerians, who have rights of living anywhere”.
Speaking on insecurity, Governor Umar Ganduje advised all Nigerians to be united in facing the country s problems. He added that winning the war against insecurity is a collective effort and should not be left for President Muhammadu Buhari alone.
