The Miyetti Allah group in North-East has refuted reports credited to the body that it has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for presidency in the forthcoming election.
The group said it had, at no time, sat to decide which presidential candidate to support.
This was made known by the Miyetti Allah leader, Mafindi Umaru Danburam on Sunday in Yola.
He said; “I resigned my office as Mortheast leader of Miyetti Allah since news broke about the purported endorsement of President Buhari by our national body. So we’re here to tell the world that if someone is priding himself as a Fulani man, Atiku is more, because he occupies the revered stool of the second in command at Adamawa emirate as the Waziri.
“If someone prides himself as a Fulani herder, Atiku is more, because he owns more than 1,000 heads of cattle, compared to 150.”
A chieftain of the group who also spoke during the event, Mohammed Ango said the Fulani people have lost their dignity under the present administration.
According to him: “Fulani people have lost more dignity under the Buhari administration than any other in history.
“Today, our people are branded as killers, branded as kidnappers or robbers, just because some people are misrepresenting us. Before now, the relationship between herders and farmers was not this bad; we can all attest to this. Our people, for instance, could pass the night in the house of say, a Bachama man in Numan, but now all that has been eroded.”
