Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the Board of Trustees (BoT) and Sarkin Fulani of Nasarawa State, Senator Walid Jubrin, yesterday upbraided the Miyetti Allah national coordinator in Benue State, Alhaji Garus Gololo, for threatening to forceful remove President of Senate, Bukola Saraki, from his position. He cautioned the ground against being agents of political attacks. Speaking with newsmen yesterday in Abuja, Jibrin further asked the Miyetti Allah to openly condemn the statement, in order to address misconceptions that it is the general position of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association. Jibrin added that there are over 25 Fulani associations in the country, stressing that Miyetti Allah, should not represent the generality of Fulanis in Nigeria.

\He said, “I will try my best to see that I bring them together, so that they will not shy away from their responsibility of defending the course of the entire Fulanis, that is to say that they should never engineer crisis, they should only safeguard the interest of the entire Fulanis by not being agents of attack. “We the Fulani concern elders are now trying to bring all these Fulanis association together, so that we can talk with one voice.” The BoT chairman said he has made in roads on addressing the herdsmen attacks in Taraba State and that he is planning to do same in Benue State. He added that he would meet the governor, the leadership of Tiv and the Fulani people during his peace mission over the herdsmen/farmers crisis.

He said, “Like I earlier did, I went to Taraba State to meet with the governor, the leaders and Fulani elders and the meeting is yielding results. I intend to go to Benue to meet the governor, the leadership of Tiv people and the Fulani people to look at the pros and cons of the issues of Fulani herdsmen. This can only be solved by dialogue and mediation. We should not be tired of discussing these issues, so that the matter will die down and so that everybody will appreciate each other.
