Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has responded to the recent threat made by the Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, regarding the movement of cows within the Nigerian capital. Wike had declared his intention to consult with relevant stakeholders to enforce a ban on open cattle grazing.
In a statement, the National Secretary of Miyetti Allah, Saleh Alhassan Kubah, downplayed Wike’s threat and mocked him as inconsequential. Kubah pointed out the lack of grazing land within Abuja and questioned where the cattle would graze, emphasizing that most of the cattle in the area belonged to the elite.
Kubah stated, “Wike is not consequential. We have seen Ortom come and go, so we don’t want to engage Wike.” He also mentioned Wike’s purported habit of consuming alcoholic drinks before going to the office.
The statement urged Wike to focus on delivering services in the FCT, addressing the issues of abandoned buildings, tax collection from unoccupied houses, and development in rural areas and satellite towns. It emphasized that power is transient, implying that Wike’s time as a minister would eventually end.
The statement defended the presence of cows in the northern geography, arguing that they are an integral part of the region’s culture and environment. It suggested that removing cows from the territory’s north could lead to instability as they are believed to appease the spirits of the land.
Kubah challenged Wike to address the insecurity in Abuja and questioned why he had not revoked the lands in the FCT immediately. He concluded by stating that Miyetti Allah would not be a problem for Wike and dismissed his concerns about grazing in Abuja.
Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore’s response portrayed Wike’s threat as inconsequential and called for his attention to other pressing issues in the FCT.
