2019: Another Miyetti Allah group endorses Buhari, rejects Atiku

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore have called on all their members to reject the candidature of Atiku Abubakar and support President Muhammadu Buhari for 2019 Presidental election. 
This is coming barely two weeks after the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) endorsed the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari.
This is just as the group rejected the report of Amnesty International on the herdsmen and farmers conflicts.
Addressing Journalists in Abuja, the National Secretary of the Miyetti Allah group, Engr Saleh Alhassan called on the Fulani Socio-cultural Association to massively campaign against the candidature of Atiku Abubakar who is the flag bearer of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He said the decision was taken after its emergency meeting to deliberate on the report of Amnesty International.
According to him” at the end of the meeting,  the following resolutions were reached.
“That after a thorough review of the Amnesty International Report on the conflict between farmers and headers in Nigeria, we have found out that substantial part of the report is not only false and unsubstantiated statements but also written to satisfy their paymasters and further stock the conflict.
“Amnesty International hired researcher did not deem it fit to interview the leadership of herders and families of the herders affected by the conflicts in the areas they claimed they visited. Consequently, we condemn such selective, highly biased and unpatriotic act.
“From the hasty conclusion of the report which was quick to dismiss the efforts of the security agencies in ending the conflicts suggested clearly that Amnesty International activities in Nigeria have been hijacked by mercenaries and mercantile characters that are sponsored by forces that want to balkanise the Nigerian state.
“It is on record that our generation has collaborated with the security agencies in finding solutions to the Farmers/herders conflicts. Hence we are calling on the Nigerian government to closely monitor activities of Amnesty International particularly their sources of funding”.
He, therefore, said “we totally condemn the desperate vituperation of Atiku Abubakar the PDP Presidential candidate for latching on the false Amnesty International Report with the hope of garnering political capital from the farmers/herders conflicts and the plight of the Pastoralists in Nigeria and call on our members and peace-loving Nigerians to not only condemn him for the save hate and naked dance in the marketplace but to totally reject him as a presidential candidate at his intentions are inimical to progress, development and peaceful coexistence of the country.
“We blamed Obasanjo for hoisting a shadowy character like Atiku as Vice President on the nation and now trying desperately to bring him back as president.

“We are calling on HRH the Lamido of Adamawa to strip Atiku Abubakar of his title as Wazirin of Adamawa for his open hatred for the Fulani Pastoralist and surrounding himself with ethnic irredentists and hate speech merchants that have been profiling the Fulani race and calling for their genocide.

“We are consequently directing all our members nationwide and other Fulani groups to embark on a massive campaign against the presidential aspiration of Atiku Abubakar because he does not mean well for the Pastoralists and the country”.
