- by Expresgist
The South West chapter of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) also known as the Fulani Herdsmen, has endorsed the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group also declared support for Dapo Abiodun, who is the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ogun State.
Chairman of the association, Alhaji Mohammed Kabir, made the declaration on Wednesday when Abiodun met with the members of the group at Sabo Market in Abeokuta.
“We hereby declare unwavering support for Buhari and Abiodun in their respective bids to contest for the presidency of the nation and governorship of Ogun state,” he said.
Kabir noted that they have directed their members to get their voters card and ensure that they cast their votes in favour of Buhari and Abiodun.
“We have mobilised our people to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and we all shall ensure that our votes are cast in their favour,” he stated.
The chairman however, requested from Mr. Kabir to help alleviate the suffering of their members when he becomes the governor, by providing water and building a modern market for the association.
“Our greatest challenges here is the scarcity of water and modern market for our Association. We will appreciate it if you will help us with a model that is in Lafenwa market,” he added.
