The Leader of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, (MACBAN) Alh. Saidu Maikano, said the first executive Governor of old Plateau State, was instrumental to the introduction of Nomadic education in Plateau State and Northern Nigeria as a whole.
He stated this at Late Solomon Lar residence in Jos, where he led a delegation of the association on a condolence visit to the family.
According to him, “During the reign of Baba Solomon Lar as a Governor he opened schools in Plateau State, including Nomadic schools and we enjoyed peaceful coexistence in the State.”
Adding that, “We mourned Lar more than any other tribes, because as our falling hero, he sacrificed a lot to unite Nigerians irrespective of their tribe or religion.
Maikano maintained that, the elder statesman brought hope to the entire Fulani race in Nigeria with Nomadic education.
“Looking at the benefits of the schools he opened, our children have graduated and are occupying positions in Government. We view his death as a monumental loss to the whole of African people because he was courageous enough to confront the Military and ensured the enthronement of democracy in the country.” Maikano stated
Speaking on , the MACBAN Leader blamed the present leadership in the country for promoting corruption, maladministration, tribalism and lack of wisdom in managing public funds.
He stressed that, “Baba’s life was full of sacrifice and selfless service to humanity, I don’t think in Nigeria we can have anybody like him so the Fulani see Lar as a blessing”.
