Fulani socio-cultural group, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, says herdsmen won’t be at a disadvantage if Nigeria is divided.

Spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan, spoke on Wednesday while featuring on PUNCH Online interview programme, The Roundtable.

According to him, northern governors would develop the livestock value chain if they stop getting “oil money” from the Federal Government.

Growing disaffection and dissatisfaction in the country had made some persons declare their support for Yoruba Nation and Biafra Republic.

However, the Miyetti Allah spokesman said the secession of parts of the country would provide an opportunity for the north to grow its own resources, adding that Nigeria is suffering from “resource curse”.

“If we want to restructure the country or divide this country, we should sit down on a round table and say this is how we want to share this country, or this how we want to exist. It is as simple as that.

“Do you think if they divide Nigeria today, the herders will be at the disadvantage? No. If there is no oil at the centre, won’t the northern governors develop livestock? Who are the custodians of livestock, is it not the Fulani herders?” he said.
