Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bauchi State chapter, has carpeted the Northern Governors Forum over the anti-open grazing laws instituted in some states in the southern part of the country.
The association said northern governors neglected the matter to focus on power shift ahead of the 2023 presidency.
Speaking with journalists in Bauchi State, the state chairman of the association, Alhaji Muhammad Hussain said it was disappointing that stakeholders in the North had failed to address their plight.
Hussaini said: “Northern governors are being lackadaisical towards the predicaments of the Fulani tribe in the country, especially the herders, who roam about searching for greener pasture for their animals in the southern parts of the country while being humiliated, maimed and even killed, with their movements restricted on their fatherland soil, contrary to the provisions of Nigerian Constitution.
“Instead of the northern governors showing concern to the forms of treatment on herders by the Southern governors, they simply sit and discuss issues of personal vendetta without recourse to the people they governed.
“For this, we condemn in totality the Northern Governors Forum meeting with emirs in attendance. They sit to discuss their self-aggrandisement motives, leveraging on ways and means to enrich themselves to the detriment of the people.”
