APC, Miyetti Allah Have Similar Objectives – Ortom

Published

on

Benue State government has said that the Miyetti Allah and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are sounding like one organization with similar objectives. Governor Ortom made this known while reacting to media report credited to one Garus Gololo of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association demanding the resignation of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in which the governor was also attacked. According to the governor, it is becoming that Miyetti Allah groups have not only assumed the position of the ruling party but are also influential to decisions of governance in this country. “What constitutional right does the group have to spew invectives on the person and office of the Senate President without being arrested? Are security agencies sending a signal to Nigerians that Miyetti Allah groups are above the law and therefore untouchable? “This is not the first time that Miyetti Allah associations have made inflammatory statements. The other time, the groups held press conferences and threatened to unleash terror on Benue people. They made real their threats and came out to claim responsibility for the killing of over 500 innocent Benue people between January and this month. They followed their gory act with threats of more bloodshed in Benue till the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law is suspended.
