2019 presidency: Herdsmen in Yoruba land endorse Buhari


South-West chapter of the Miyetti Allah, an umbrella body of cattle dealers association, on Wednesday, declared support for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The Chairman, Alhaji Mohammed Kabir, made the declaration when Dapo Abiodun, APC Ogun governorship candidate met with 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.

“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 said.

Kabir, who is also the Seriki Fulani of Ogun told the APC governorship candidate that the association was facing various challenges in the market

He requested for a face-lift of the market with provision of water for their cattle “when Abiodun becomes the governor”.

“Our greatest challenge, here, is the scarcity of water to feed our cattle.

“We will appreciate you will help us with a model that is in Lafenwa market, here, so that we can feed our cattle.

“Not only that, we need a modern market for our Association,” he said.
