Miyetti Allah distances self from Gololo’s threat to Saraki


The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, has stated that the coordinator of the association in Benue State, Garus Gololo, spoke in his personal capacity and not on its behalf when he called on Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign or be forced out of office by the association.

Baba Uthman Ngelzarma, National Secretary of MACBAN, said in a statement on Wednesday that the association does not subscribe to the ‘unfortunate’ views expressed by Gololo, who it insisted has no mandate to speak on behalf of the association, and that the body cannot meddle in the affairs of politicians.

Ngelzarma said, “Miyetti Allah is a non partisan association with no interest in the political terrain and we couldn’t meddle into the affairs of political actors thereby compounding our already obvious challenges. 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 on 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.”
