Miyetti Allah says Saraki will be forced out — if he does not resign



The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) has asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign from his office or be forced out.

Garus Gololo, the coordinator of MACBAN in Benue state, said this in an interview with PUNCH on Tuesday.

He alleged that Saraki is always working to undermine the presidency.

“It is on this note that we are saying that Saraki ought not to be in office again as senate president, more so, Saraki has failed to coordinate and organise the national assembly to offer quality legislation that Nigerians need,” Gololo said.

“Nigerians are in dire need of people that have the interest of the masses.

“Miyetti Allah is looking for a leader that would preside over the affairs of the senate with ultimate respect for the executive and the judiciary, not someone like senator Saraki that would always scheme to outdo the presidency.

“We are now tired of Saraki’s style of leadership at the national assembly. Therefore, we are now warning him to honourably resign his position as president of the Senate or we will force him out.”

He did not state how his association will remove Saraki from office.

Gololo also said Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue, should forget about implementing the state’s anti-grazing law and fight for his re-election bid.

“Ortom should forget about anything called Miyetti Allah and grazing law and fight for his re-election because Benue people and his new party (PDP) have rejected him,” he said.
