Gov. Bello denies alleged mismanagement of N344bn

The Kogi State chapter of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has declared its support for Governor Yahaya Bello as its preferred candidate in the forthcoming Nov. 16 governorship election in the state.

National Organising Secretary of the group, Aliyu Saleh, made this known at a news conference in Lokoja on Saturday.

He directed Fulanis in the state to immediately embark on Ruga-to-Ruga campaign for the re-election of Bello.

Saleh explained that the group decided to support the governor for providing a secure environment for Fulanis to operate in the state.

“We are also supporting the governor for approving free Contagious Bovine Plurol Pheneumonia (CBPP) vaccination for over 23, 000 cows belonging to our members in the state,” he said.

MACBAN also applauded Bello for putting in place measures which had led to a reduction in clashes between farmers and herders in the state.

It also stated that the governor had given its members a sense of belonging by appointing one of them into his cabinet and by making their leaders members of the traditional councils at the state and local government levels.

The national organising secretary, who was flanked by the state Chairman of MACBAN, Alhaji Umaru Jaido, also said that they decided to endorse Bello’s candidature because of their love for President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
