Saraki: Call Miyetti Allah To Order, Group Tells PMB



Leadership Nigeria News Today

A pro-democracy group, Movement for Democratic Goals (MDG) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to call members of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) to order over their threat to force Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki out of office if he fails to resign his position. The group, in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday by its national co
ordinator, Aliyu Abdulkareem, said Nigerians will hold the President responsible for any outbreak of violence in the country. According to the group, “The statement credited to the coordinator of the association in Benue State, Alhaji Garus Gololo, where he threatened to force the number three citizen of the nation out of office, is not only reckless and irresponsible, it is also highly unfortunate and capable of throwing the nation into turmoil.” The group said such threat could have been ignored, as the noise of an attention seeking rabble-rouser, but the several bestial activities credited to members of the association in the recent past, is enough reason not to treat the threat with levity. The statement reads in part, “It is on record that members of the association don’t just issue a threat, they go all-out to violently fulfill their threats, and it is evident in their recent activities. “We also strongly believe that he who pays the piper calls the tune, the association only echoed the mindset and plans of their paymasters and those giving them state support. “As the Patron of the association, President Buhari must call them to order to forestall the outbreak of violence and anarchy in any part of the country. Their threat should not be taken with levity.
