2023: It’s Only Peter Obi I’ve Not Met – Miyetti Allah Speaks On Endorsing Presidential Candidate
The leadership of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) says contrary to beliefs in some quarters, it is yet to endorse any candidate for the 2023 presidential election in the country.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Miyetti Allah president, Baba Othman Ngelzarma however said they would reveal the candidate to support before the February 2023 election.
According to him, the group has already met and presented its seven-point agenda to the presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso.
He added that Miyetti Allah has not met the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi personally but has reached him through a contact. Ngelzarma made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Saturday.
He said “I have met Atiku Abubakar (PDP), Kwankwaso (NNPP) personally and discussed with them. “It’s only Peter Obi of Labour Party I have not met, I hope to meet him soon, but our demands have been submitted. “Let me make it clear: we have not endorsed any candidate. We will do so in February, before the election. “This would be after we’ve analyzed their plans and got their responses to our requests.”
Topless Argentinian fan faces jail time in Qatar after stripping off to celebrate her country World Cup final victory
An Argentina fan is facing jail time after she was spotted taking off her top in a fiery celebration of Argentina’s victory over France in the World Cup final.
After Gonzalo Montiel’s penalty kick sealed the win for Argentina, cameras turned towards cheering Argentina fans and among them was a blonde fan who gave the cameras a little more than was expected.
Ahead of the tournament, fans were warned that they would be required to respect Qatar’s strict, conservative customs.
The Qatar Tourism Authority stated: ‘Visitors (men as well as women) are expected to show respect for local culture by avoiding excessively revealing clothing in public.
‘It is generally recommended for men and women to ensure their shoulders and knees are covered.’
In conservative Qatar, women are banned from wearing any revealing outfits such as tight clothing and from showing any cleavage.
Non-Qatari women are not required to wear the abaya – a long, black robe that covers the figure almost from head-to-toe. But, tourists are to ensure that tops cover their midriff and shoulders, while skirts, dresses, and trousers must hide the knees.
Armed herders kill 3 in Makurdi
Three persons were weekend gruesomely murdered in farmland by suspected armed Fulani herders at Adaka community in the outskirts of Makurdi, the Benue state capital.“This latest attack is coming barely two months after similar separate attacks in Gbeji and Ukohol communities in Ukum and Guma Government Local Government Areas, LGAs, of the state where at least 60 persons including two security personnel were massacred.
It was gathered from a source in the community, who spoke on condition of anonymity, that the armed men had overtime grazed their cattle on people’s rice farms in the community.“He said, “For some time now, Fulani herdsmen have been bring their cattle into the rice farms in the community.
The development forced one of the farm owners who obviously lost millions of Naira to the cattle invasion to kill some of the cattle while they were devouring his rice farm. This must have triggered the action of the armed herdsmen who staged a reprisal, killing three persons as if they were animals.
