Miyetti Al­lah tasks Buhari on Chi­bok girls

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT) chap­ter of the Miyetti Al­lah Cat­tle Breed­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (MACBAN) has urged the ad­min­is­tra­tion of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari to en­sure the Chi­bok school girls are res­cued.

In a state­ment jointly signed by the Chair­man, Ardo Kuje, Sec­re­tary Gen­eral, Us­man Abubakar and the Public Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Ibrahim Wak­ili, they noted that the agony par­ents of the girls have gone through since the ab­duc­tion of the girls was wor­ri­some.

They also con­demned last week’s bomb blasts at Kuje and Nyanya, which claimed the lives of about 20 peo­ple and in­jured sev­eral oth­ers.

They noted that the at­tack car­ried by sui­cide bombers was aimed at dent­ing the im­age of Pres­i­dent Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion, es­pe­cially now that the army has set a tar­get to get rid of in­sur­gency in the North East by end of De­cem­ber.

“We are

sym­pa­thiz­ing with Nige­ri­ans, es­pe­cially those that lost their lives in the re­cent bomb blast at Kuje And Nyanya. We also pray for their souls to rest in peace, while we wish those who were in­jured a quick re­cov­ery,” the state­ment said.
