Be fo­cused, Sul­tan urges Miyetti Al­lah

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Hal­ima Musa, Kano

The Sul­tan of Sokoto, Al­haji Sa’ad Abubakar, has called on the newly in­au­gu­rated na­tional ex­ec­u­tives of Miyetti Al­lah Cat­tle Breed­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria (MACBAN) to es­chew ri­valry and work hard to ad­dress the chal­lenges af­fect­ing mem­bers of the as­so­ci­a­tion.

In a state­ment signed by Na­tional Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of the as­so­ci­a­tion, Al­ha­jiBaba Oth­man Ngelzarma, the Sul­tan while in­au­gu­rat­ing the ex­ec­u­tives said the chal­lenges ahead of cat­tle breed­ers in Nigeria were enor­mous, adding that only good lead­er­ship would see them through.

In his re­sponse, the newly in­au­gu­rated na­tional pres­i­dent of the group, Muham­mad Kirowa, as­sured that they will work to jus­tify the con­fi­dence re­posed in them. Kirowa added that the step taken by some state gov­ern­ments to pro­vide graz­ing re­serves and stock routes was apt as it would help in fos­ter­ing peace­ful co-ex­is­tence be­tween farm­ers and cat­tle rear­ers.
