The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has stated that herders will not give their support to any southern candidate who is against open grazing in the 2023 presidential election.
This was made known by spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan, on Tuesday when he featured on PUNCH online interview programme.
Recall that most southern states have signed the anti-grazing law which has been rejected by herders and described as ‘satanic’ and ‘politically motivated'.
While fielding questions, Alhassan said “If you say you are producing (Ondo State Governor and Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum, Rotimi) Akeredolu as a southern candidate, we would never support him because he is championing the destruction of our rural economy. People like that, we would never support them. We won’t support someone hobnobbing with Biafrans.”
Alhassan also reacted to the demand of Southern governors that the next president must come from their region. He said Nigerians will decide through votes.
