As the 2015 general elections approaches, the Fulani Community in Nasarawa State has endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan as their candidate for the presidential elections.
The group also endorsed the Minister for Information, Labaran Maku as their candidate for the 2015 governorship of Nasarawa State.
Alhaji Mohammed Hussaini Adamu who is the Spokesman for the Fulani Community and Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Nassarawa State, made their position known at a civic reception in Ubbe near Akwanga in honour of the Minister for Information, Labaran Maku.
Adamu said the Fulanis in the State have been victims of inter-ethnic clashes and violence in recent times, but lamented that Government had never exhibited genuine commitment to ameliorating their plights.
“Worst of it all, the State Government has not shown any serious concern and commitment to the welfare and means of livelihood of the Fulanis.
“No distinguished son or personality of the State has identified with the cause of the people. Our people feel oppressed and marginalized in the scheme of affairs of the state, Adamu decried.
The Secretary further told the gathering that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had accommodated the Fulanis and gave them opportunity to play significant and strategic roles in the affairs of the nation noting that the National
Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu and the Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the party, Senator Walid Jibril and several others who are prominent Fulani sons are at the helm of affairs of the PDP.
