Leaders of 17 Fulani groups have formed a coalition, led by Ganduje & Isa Yuguda



Leaders of 17 Fulani groups have formed a coalition to end the insecurity being perpetrated by some of their kinsmen, with the immediate past Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje stating that killer herdsmen had been transformed.

The Fulani leaders, including former Bauchi State governor Isa Yuguda and Ganduje acknowledged that just as it is with other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria, there are bad eggs amongst the Fulani that engage in kidnapping, armed robbery and other armed militia activities.

Speaking at the maiden meeting of 17 Fulani groups that formed a coalition to confront the security challenges in the country and change the attitude of the Fulani to modern pastoralism, Ganduje said the killer herdsmen are now born again.

“There must be a change in narrative. Nomadic education failed because of misunderstanding. We must change our attitude to benefit from the present government’s “Renewed Hope”. We must change our attitude to modern cattle rearing for more revenue,” Ganduje said,

When asked which of the herdsmen are now born again, Ganduje said. it was those engaged in activities that are causing insecurity in the country.

“The herdsmen are born again. Their lives are important. They are now working for peace and stability. We are requesting the government to provide an enabling environment for the herders to do their businesses. We are convincing ourselves for peace to reign so that we can benefit from what the government is planning for us.
