Herdsmen association threatens to force Saraki to resign



An Association of herdsmen under the under the aegis of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association has asked President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, to resign or be force to do so, saying he has created several problems for the President Muhammadu Buhari-led regime.

The association further said Saraki is to be held responsible for negative effect Nigerian economy in suffering, as well as social growth of the country owing to the fact that he is unsupportive of the Buhari government.

Speaking on Tuesday in Markudi, the Meyetti’s national coordinator, Alhaji Garus Gololo, issued the warning while speaking journalists, saying,  “It is on this note that we are saying that Saraki ought not to be in office again as Senate President, more so, Saraki has failed to coordinate and organise the National Assembly to offer quality legislation that Nigerians need.

“Nigerians are in dire need of people that have the interest of the masses. Miyetti Allah is looking for a leader that would preside over the affairs of the Senate with ultimate respect for the executive and the judiciary, not someone like Senator Saraki that would always scheme to outdo the Presidency.

“We are now tired of Saraki’s style of leadership at the National Assembly. Therefore, we are now warning him to honourably resign his position as president of the Senate or we will force him out”, Gololo said, refusing, however, to explain how the association would remove the Senate president.

Reacting to the comment by Governor Ortom accusing a former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav, of being an agent of the Miyetti Allah, Gololo said Tsav was not a member of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association or a Fulani man by tribe and couldn’t have been an agent of the Miyetti Allah.

He urged governor Ortom to face his problem with the EFCC and leave Miyetti Allah alone.

“Ortom should forget about anything called Miyetti Allah and grazing law and fight for his re-election because Benue people and his new party (PDP) have rejected him,” adding that the PDP would not give him the ticket to run in the 2019 governorship election in the state.
