A Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, an umbrella body for all Fulanis in the country, has cautioned politicians to desist from using its members during elections in the country for their selfish gains, saying time has come when they would not agree to be manipulated.
In a communiqué signed by the National President of the association, Alhaji Bello Abdullahi Bodejo and made available to journalists, after a meeting in Kaduna, the group said the Fulanis have met and decided within themselves to cast their votes for a credible candidate in the 2015 general election.
To this end, the association advised all the Fulanis in the country, to hide their voter’s cards and wait for further directive from the Miyetti Allah national headquarters to use it for better candidate of their choice.
The communiqué reads: “We have also resolved that our association will not allow any politician to come and use their sweet mouths for us any longer because they have used use and dumped us before.
“Therefore, we the Fulanis have meet and decided within ourselves that we are going to cast our vote for a credible candidate in the next general election.”
