Miyetti Allah Knocks Ortom, Kicks Against Anti-Open Grazing Laws

Published

on

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Fulani Socio-Cultural Association said states governors must drop anti-open grazing laws in order not to undermine the relative peace and stability currently enjoyed in the local communities.

The National Secretary of the association, Mr. Saleh Alhassan, made the call at a National Peace Summit and Investiture of Queen Mother Amina Temitope Ajayi held at Uke, Karu Local Government, Nasarawa State.

Alhassan, who acted as the Miyetti Allah Brand Ambassador, said the laws were targeted at Fulani pastoralists.

He said the laws would threaten the social order, and exacerbated cattle rustling.

He added that the anti-open grazing laws would destroy livestock production and send into poverty millions of people that depend on the livestock value chain.

Alhassan, however, appealed to the national assembly to come to the rescue of the pastoralists by resuscitating and passing the Grazing Reserves Commission Bill and other livestock management bills that were initiated by the previous assembly.

The secretary also called on the Federal Government to create a Federal Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries as obtainable in many African countries.

He stressed the need for the government to take an inventory of all the existing grazing reserves, traditional grazing areas, transhumance corridors, major stock routes and fully develop at least one grazing reserve in each Senatorial District.

“This is in line with the recommendation of the Inter-ministerial Committee on Livestock Development in Nigeria 2015, the Report of the President Committee on Pastoralists and Insecurity 2014, and National Livestock Transformation Programme.”

He said that the review of the Land Use Act was long overdue to accommodate the interest of all land resources users, including pastoralists.

He said that ranching as envisaged by many required capital investment and was difficult to sustain, not economical “and it is not small livestock holder-centered.

Alhassan then called for the proper funding of the National Commission for Nomadic Education and the expansion of its mandate.

Alhassan also spoke about Governor Ortom.

He said the governor must tender an apology for his continuous accusations against Falani pastoralists.

He said: “Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore totally condemns the continuous extortion and profiling of the Fulani pastoralists by Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue and we call on him to offer an apology to the Fulani race.

“We commend the courageous efforts of the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari for listening to our consistent call to restore the existing grazing reserves, routes and create new ones.

“Because it is the only sustainable solution to the farmers and herders conflicts in the country.”

“It is not the right thing to do and I have never done it. If my partner asks for my nude pictures, that will be the end of the relationship. I will get out of the relationship.”
