The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) has come under serious fire by Nigerians for seeking the removal of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
It intensify yesterday when Miyetti Allah’s Benue State Coordinator had issued an ultimatum for the resignation of Saraki following his defection to the opposition party.
“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 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.”
His statement drew intense backlash from Nigerians. This forced the national body to distance itself from such position.
The People Democratic Party have claimed that Miyetti Allah “has always represented the military wing of the APC and the Buhari presidency,” noting: “It is incontrovertible that they have now become the fourth arm of government that can determine when and how to forcefully remove the number three citizen, the president of the Senate.”
“It is common knowledge that Mr. President has come under heavy public criticisms on how his body language has condoned the unguarded utterances and actions of these characters.”
