Insecurity: Miyetti Allah President blames regional leaders of herders

The National President of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has blamed insecurity in parts of the country on the various state leaders of the group.

The President, Alhaji Muhammadu Kirowa, made the accusation, weekend, at the inauguration of North-Western states executives of MACBAN in Dutse, Jigawa State capital.

Kirowa accused the body’s states’ head of allowing youths in their domains go out of control.

The President, who could not hide his anger, explained that it is common knowledge that “Fulani were victims of various forms of persecutions and criminality” but that they had no Fulani-owned media to give them a voice.

He said: “Before any other person gets kidnapped about 20 or more Fulani people must have suffered the same fate with payment of ransoms, which no media had bothered to report or investigate in the past.

“We have to tell ourselves the truth that we have failed in our responsibility of giving our children the right training and good upbringing that ought to have shaped them to be better people.

“We cannot continue to wallow in denial when it is a fact that majority of criminals arrested across the country are from among us. They went that way because of our sheer negligence.”

Alhaji Muhammadu Kirowa, who is also the Ardon Zuru, stated further that the ball was now in the court of leaders and the rest of the Fulani societies to either unite and provide their children with a better home training and education or continue to stain the name of the tribe.

Earlier, the National Secretary-General in charge of North-West of MACBAN, Alhaji Baba Usman Ngelzarma, urged the newly-inaugurated leaders to team up with heads of security operatives in their various states for a smooth working relationship.

Ngelzarma noted that the association was a non-political one, which is why the Sultan of Sokoto is serving as BOT Chairman, with the Emir of Kano, Lamido of Adamawa and others as members.

He then urged Fulani herders to embrace the modern trend of cattle ranching to avoid conflicts with farmers and continued exposure to criminal tendencies.

Well, the fact is that Nigeria is coming to a reckoning whereby every group must tell itself the truth, or perish.

I know that criminality is a human thing, but groups can still choose to adopt noble, progressive and peaceful cultures while shunning useless, unproductive and violent culture. It is really up to each ethnic group.

I take my Igbo for example. In Igboland, for every career criminal (kidnapper, armed robber, rapists, etc) there are at least 1000 positive members: doctors, sports professional, movie and entertainment professionals, engineers, business persons, educationists, lawyers, and all manner of LEGITIMATE and earnest incomes.

That is why it is possible for Igbo to domicile in foreign lands and contribute net positively to their places of domicile.

That is why it is difficult for hosts of those Igbos to really eject them, because doing so would be tantamount to hurting their own interests.

But, that has not been the case with the Fulani.
In fact, apart from cow meat, there is no other benefit that a  community can really derive from Fulani living in their midst.
They live in forests instead of towns where they could contribute to real estate or other commercial activities.
And they are often violent and hostile even to their hosts.
So, living with them is a real pain.

The Fulani should copy other Nigerians (particularly Southern Nigerians) in sending their children to schools and changing their lifestyle from nomadic 19th century lifestyle to 21st century lifestyle.

If they don't change, they will attract conflict that can quickly threaten their existence in Nigeria.
This man spoke the truth!
