The Miyetti Allah group has charged Fulanis in Nigeria not to vote for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi in the 2023 general elections.
The group in a statement released on Sunday described the former Governor of Anambra State as a ‘tribal bigot’.
According to Miyetti Allah, Obi has the interest of Biafran which would not favour Fulanis in the country if he emerge as president in 2023.
The National Secretary-General of the Fulani socio-cultural group, Saleh Ahassan lay the allegation against Obi in an interview with Punch.
Miyetti Allah further stated that Obi should not be considered for the presidency in the forthcoming election.
The group said, “As far as we are concerned, we know those we cannot vote for. You see that they call Obi or Obidient, any Fulani man who votes for him must be questioned because he may not be a true son of the soil.
“Obi represents the Biafran interest. So, we know those we cannot vote for and those that cannot be president of Nigeria. He is a tribal bigot.”
Alhassan also claimed that Obi as the governor of Anambra State, “destroyed the businesses of northerners and chased plenty Hausa and Fulani people from entering Anambra.”
The spokesperson for Peter Obi Support Network, Jones Onwuasoanya while reacting to the stand Miyetti Allah said Obi was a nationalist whose interest was only with Nigerians.
Onwuasoanya further stated that Obi believes in one Nigeria and is committed to making Nigeria a successful nation.
