…says southern governors are jokers 

Fulani socio-cultural organisation, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has demanded a ministry that will cater for the welfare of the Fulani people. The group also described the 17 governors of the southern states as jokers. 

National President of the Association, Alhaji Bello Bodejo, stated this in an interview with Daily Sun in Abuja, in response to the proposed ban on open grazing in the South. He said his members were not bound by the position of the southern governors.

“Governors don’t have constitutional power to do what they have done. Though, they have the right to make pronouncements or suggestions, but it’s not binding to us because there is no constitutional backing to that. They are all jokers.”

He advised Fulani people in the south to remain there and do their businesses legitimately, because they are Nigerians and should be allowed to trade peacefully anywhere in the country.

He challenged the governors to go after people who are committing crimes in southern communities irrespective of tribe or religious beliefs.


On constitutional review, Bodejo said: “We demand creation of a ministry that will cater for the welfare of our people. We are being attacked endlessly from every part of the south. We don’t know where to go again. We suggested that a ministry be created to take care of our people.”

He said the Fulani have become “endangered species” across the country because of several negative reports in social and conventional media that paint them as enemies of the people and state.


He, thus, appealed to Fulani people across the country to remain calm, peaceful and law abiding in spite of provocations.

Meanwhile, the Miyetti Allah has distanced itself from Sunday attacks in Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.


They challenged the police and other security agencies to quickly investigate, apprehend and prosecute people found to be involved in the attacks to serve as deterrent to others who might want to perpetrate such criminal act.

He said members of the association were peace loving people, who could not have been involved in such wicked act.
