Nigeria 2015: We have not endorsed Jonathan- Miyyetti Allah

The Miyyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria on Sunday disassociated itself from what it called “a purported endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan”.

The National Youth Leader of the group, Adamu Mohammed, reacted to the recent endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan by a group called Miyyetti Allah Kautal Hore led by Abdullahi Bodejo.

In a press release issued after an emergency meeting of the cattle breeders association, Mr. Mohammed said the group that endorsed the president was different from theirs.

“The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore led by one Alhaji Abdullahi Bello Bodejo is a cultural organization which exists in only one state of the federation and therefore cannot speak on our behalf on any national issues because they are not representing all Fulani’s in the country.

“Therefore, we want to disassociate the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria from the statement credited to the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore that they have endorsed certain political candidates in the forthcoming elections.

“MACBAN is not part of the endorsement since we are not a political association, but an organized group whose aim and objectives was to protect the interest of Fulani’s all over the country and beyond.

He said the group’s membership includes the Sultan of Sokoto as Grand Patron, as well as the Emir of Kano, Emir of Zazzau, Lamido of Adamawa and Emir of Katsina as members of the Board of Trustees.

The official advised all its members to vote on election day in an orderly manner.

    ” only bastard can vote Jonathan ” Yoruba eldrs, March 2015.

    • Kabiru Idriss

      ..because Yoruba cannot articulate anything positive in their lives!

      • Fulani Nomad

        Go watch Jonathan on BBC YouTube Channel then come for education on the word ‘articulation’.

        • Moe

          OH MY GOD!! I just watched Jonathan’s BBC interview.
          Our President can not speak proper ENGLISH!
          ….and these assholes dare to ask for Buhari’s secondary school certificate?
          DO a comparison of Jonathan’s BBC interview and Buhari’s BBC interview and you will be astonished.
          Jonathan speaks incorrect ENGLISH!!!

            Breaking news: 9 people with Northern extraction (Jiggawa) coming from Portharcout were killed in Portharcout. Only bastard can see nothing of deaths of any body from anywhere !

    Jonathan recently endorsed by witches and wizards. He pretends to be a follower of Jesus Christ but he wines and dines with the devil. Like Pastor Okitie noted his declaration had occultic meaning. Satan had endorsed GEJ all believers in true God must reject him.

  • Olubode Samuel

    You guys should address the way your members kill fellow Nigerians. I’m not interested in your endorsing GEJ. Anybody you like endorse but educate your folks so they can know that you can’t compare man with cattle and that they should respect the rights of their hosts in any part of the country.

  • burning spear

    Jonathan stop some of these unbecoming acts of his——Fulanis will never– never vote for him no matter what–let them go solve the boko haram trouble—-and leave him alone——–i begi–dasuki d NSA should also be told to end these disgraceful acts with the president

    Buhari’s Campaign Rice Arrives Nigeria.

    Another Batch of imported customised Campaign rice belonging to the APC Presidential candidate, Pa Muhammadu Buhari has just arrived at the Lagos Port.
    The first batch that barth last weekend are been sent to state capitals and Local government headquarters.

    Buhari who said in 2003 that it is his duty to ensure that sharia law is established across the country, is doing fine in the electioneering campaign since he travelled overseas for medical treatment.

    His campaign is polling under 34% in the Nigeria latest polls, while President Jonathan is soaring around 58%. Majority of the undecided are likely to vote for Buhari, whose poor health, loss of memory, apparent deceits from his party leadership, exposed high corruption of his sponsors and the victory of the Nigerian Troops among other factors are not helping Buhari.

    • Ad

      You can lie oo! Which poll was Buhari getting 38% even the one organised by Omokiri Buhari got more than 38%.

  • Why is Jonathan always associated with corruption, stealing, lying, endorsement and counter-endorsement? Remember the endorsement and counter-endorsement by Ohaneze Ndigbo? Truly, there is no honest leadership in Nigeria yet. Nigeria needs change.

    • begy

      Was Ohaneze Ndigbo the only organisation that endorsed Jonathan? why fingering ethnic jingoism.

  • tankoma

    Why this president like to dey enter ONE CHANCE so?

  • Nwaobilor

    Please and Please!!! All these cattle breeders should go away with their endorsements..

  • Etega

    Kamman make dem dis Fulani burroro dem park well, who dey beg dem for dia yeye endorsement.

  • Emeka215


  • Enumah

    Like their endorsement matter.

  • Nelson David

    Every group wants to use this election period to make us know their name by just saying one against Jonathan and the press will carry it freely. We have heard you but most of your people have made up their mind on who to vote on that day of the election which you already know.

  • Bassey

    You can’t stop them to by saying this when they have made their choice, PGEJ will win.

  • Divine West

    You want to vote Buhari vote but majority of members will vote Jonathan.

  • kingsley obi

    Whether they deny or not PGEJ remains the peoples choice.

  • ubong ekanem

    all we know is that majority will vote PGEJ

  • faith adams

    Is this the time to endorse? elections are on Saturday, in case they do not know.

  • felicia jones

    We love GEJ, he remains my choice.

  • kemi

    PGEJ will win the election period

  • sofia williams

    These are the few that sold their conscience for some few notes.

  • Maitama Tambari

    To recruit participation the miscreant were spreading words of discord which had nothing to do with this election. They called me to say that “Awolowo abused Sardauna of Sokoto. So APC is Awolowo’s Party while PDP is Sardauna’s Party. I asked them if Awolowo that abused Sardauna has ever killed a Northerner? Today, many Northerners have been killed under the watchful eyes of President Jonathan, how could you support such a candidate for another four years of killing?” They left without answer. The are not representing Fulanis, they are representing themselves. WE ALL BELIEVE CHANGE COME 28th MARCH. YES WE CAN IN NIGERIA. ALI MUST GO. YES JONATHAN MUST GO.

  • it’s not too late to do so, but if you want to do other wise, feel free because it barely affects the outcome of the election.

  • Truth is it doesn’t matter, because jonathan already has massive support and endorsement, any group can come out and talk what ever but c’mon who are they kidding they cant bend the will of the masses, the people chose jonathan and so it shall be.

  • chinwe davis

    so what, who cares are like it matters, GEJ for naija,.
