A Fulani socio-cultural group, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, on Thursday cautioned Nigerians against voting for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar during the election.
Abdullahi Bodejo, National President of the group, accused Abubakar of alleged hatred for the Fulani nation.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, Bodejo said Atiku should be stripped of his traditional title, Wazirin Adamawa.
Bodejo also urged other Fulani bodies to mobilise against Atiku, ahead of the presidential election.
He said: “We are calling on HRM the Lamido of Adamawa to strip Atiku Abubakar of his title as Waziri Adamawa for his open hatred for the Fulani pastoralist and surrounding himself with ethnic and merchants that have been profiling the Fulani race and calling for their genocide.
“We are consequently directing all our members nationwide and other Fulani groups to embark on massive campaign against the presidential aspiration of Atiku Abubakar because he does not mean well for the pastoralist and the country.”
Be also condemned the recent report of Amnesty International on farmers-herders’ clashes in the country.
According to Bodejo, the former Vice President was “feasting and capitalising on the report with the view to garnering political capital from the farmers-herders conflict.”
Bodejo urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct security agencies to monitor Atiku “considering his volatile and inciting statement he made against herders.”
