Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has backed the call for herders in Southern parts of Nigeria to relocate back to the North.
This is even as he asserted that cows have more monetary value than all the oil and gas reserve in the South put together.
Adamu’s response follows the call by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, Bauchi State forum, for all herders in the South to relocate back to the north.
The order by MACBAN was influenced by the move by all 17 governors of the south to impose a ban on open grazing.
Taking to Twitter to react to the order by MACBAN, former presidential aspirant explained;
“I impeccably concur with this order. All cattle rearers in the Southern should return. We will utilize the dairy cattle, measure the assets, and discharge globally as completed merchandise.”
“Our cattle have more financial worth than all the oil and gas available in the South. Our significant partners in the North should concede cattle rearing as business openings instead of way of life and contribute heavily to carry our cattle to the absolute settings. only our cattle resources can take care of our challenges in the North.”
“The open positions, the assembling communities, and the association with worldwide center points of requests for the best dairy cattle meats can access more entryways and set for the freedom of Northern Nigeria from modest and fairly, futile oil resources. We should put resources into collecting the worth of cows”
“All the Governors in North believes that granting approval for constructing streets and eating from it, is all that matters . This singular attitude of the governors has exposed the North to loftiness and abuse from certain components from the South. Here is the ideal opportunity for them to stand to our possibilities.”
“It is now crystal clear that the 2023 political race is a dairy cattle states and non-cows states race. We should be obtuse about this. On the off chance that Northern chiefs don’t see this dire reality, the objective won’t simply be the cattle, however the cattle holding states and their followers.”
