The Taraba State chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, on Monday, endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state, Alhaji Sani Abubakar Danladi for the upcoming elections.
MACBAN explained that its decision was due to the conviction that Buhari had kept his campaign promises, especially to the North-East.
Alhaji Sahabi Mahmud Tukur, the state Chairman of MACBAN, made the disclosure at a press conference in Jalingo, the state capital.
Tukur cited projects like the Mambilla Hydro Power project, the bridge across the River Benue in Ibbi and other projects in the region as reasons why Buhari should be re-elected in February.
He also stated that the failure of the incumbent administration in the state called for the need to change the government at that level.
According to Tukur: “I am pleased to inform you that the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Taraba State chapter has adopted President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC as its presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
“We have equally adopted Alhaji Sani Abubakar Danladi of the APC as our governorship candidate in Taraba State and all the other candidates vying for various posts on the platform of the APC in the state.
“This decision is not only a mark of respect for our leaders but also a conviction that the president has fulfilled his campaign promises in areas of security, fight against corruption and economic growth.
“I urge you to take this message seriously and work towards the election of Alhaji Sani Abubakar Danladi in his bid to take over the state government so that the good programme of the APC would flow down easily.”
Recall that the National President of the group, Muhammadu Kirowa, had endorsed Buhari recently in Abuja.
