We Didn’t Endorse Tinubu as a Presidential Candidate, Says Miyetti Allah

FastNews reports that the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has stated that it has not endorsed APC national leader Bola Tinubu or anyone else as a presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.

“The attention of the MACBAN National Headquarters has been directed to media reports suggesting that we have endorsed Senator Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential bid.” “We want to be clear that the association has not endorsed any candidate,” MACBAN’s national secretary Baba Ngelzarma said in an Abuja statement on Wednesday.

“Those who endorsed Tinubu are doing so as individuals, as MACBAN should not be dragged into the politics of endorsement at this stage,” said the Miyetti Allah statement.

The Fulani herdsmen association explained that the association respected the aspirations of all presidential aspirants, although it had not yet singled out an individual for support.

On Sunday, one of Miyetti Allah leaders, Ya’u Haruna, said, “We are also scanning the people showing interest in the presidential seat with Bola Tinubu leading because he was the one that intervened in our matter while he was governor of Lagos, and we had a crisis in Benue.”

He stated this after a meeting at the Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute in Abuja.

Mr. Haruna added that “Tinubu came all the way, got us on a round table, and reconciled us, so, someone who could do this at that time, we believe can do more when he is at the helm of affairs,”

On January 10, Mr. Tinubu formally informed the incumbent president of his presidential ambitions in 2023. The ex-Lagos governor, who spoke after a closed-door meeting with Mr. Buhari at the State House, Abuja, said tho he had made his intention known to the president, he would continue to consult with Nigerians.

He dismissed the assertion that ”a kingmaker cannot become a king,” saying he would like to take over from Mr. Buhari in 2023.
