THE National Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Baba Uthman Ngelzarma has described the comment of Garus Gololo (calling for the resignation of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki) as unfortunate.
In a statement issued by MACBAN and signed by Baba Uthman Ngelzarma, it said that Gololo who is the Chairman of MACBAN in Benue has no mandate to speak on behalf of the Association.
“The attention of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria has been drawn to an interview granted by one Garus Gololo in Makurdi to Punch Newspaper titled ‘Resign or we will force you out’. Miyetti Allah to Saraki. This statement is unfortunate.
“I will categorically state that Garos Gololo spoke in his personal capacity and has no mandate to speak on behalf of the association.
“Miyetti Allah is a non-partisan association with no interest in the political terrain and we couldn’t meddle in the affairs of political actors thereby compounding our already obvious challenges”, the statement noted.
He, however, urged Nigerians to disregard the statement, adding that Gololo is on his own and can’t represent the National body.
“I, therefore, urge all and sundry to disregard this statement. This statement is not from MACBAN and should be disregarded in its entirety. We take exception to this statement and Garos Gololo is entirely on his own and will be sanctioned accordingly.
“We cannot afford to add up to the many challenges we are confronted with. I’m therefore appealing to the general public to disregard this statement as it is coming from someone who doesn’t have the mandate of the association to speak on its behalf. Thank You and God bless you all”, he added.
