The Kogi chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) has endorsed Usman Ododo, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the state.

Umar Damina, MACBAN chairman in the state, spoke on Saturday when he visited  Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, in Lokoja, the state capital.

Damina, who was accompanied on the visit by Fulani herders from 21 LGAs, said the association is confident that Ododo would build on the foundation laid by Bello.

He added that the governor has demonstrated his commitment to the welfare and security of the people.


“It’s our belief that the APC candidate, Ododo, will continue to build upon the solid foundation you have laid when elected as governor of Kogi on Nov 11,” NAN quoted Damina as saying.

On his part, Bello said his administration is committed to ensuring Fulani herders who are engaged in legal businesses are protected against any form of discrimination within and outside the state.

“This administration appreciates MACBAN’s valuable contributions in sharing information and gathering intelligence, which had aided conventional security forces in identifying and eliminating criminal elements among the Fulani community in the state,” the governor said.


“I’m indeed convinced that the Fulani people known for their unwavering commitment to their words, will undoubtedly throw their support behind APC during the Nov. 11 polls.”

He urged Fulani herders residing in Kogi to be cautious and support the government in eradicating criminal elements from the state.
