National Chairman of the Association of Fulani Chiefs of Nigeria and Sarkin Fulani of Lagos State, Alhaji Mohammed Bambado, has vowed that they would resist through legal means, plans to register their kinsmen and women in the eastern part of the country.
According to Daily Trust, Bambado described the move as unconstitutional and an attempt to create chaos and confusion in the country.
He said the country “is still saddled by insecurity issue which it is yet to tackle, now some people are talking about registering Nigerians in a Nigeria state. It is unaccepted and remain rejected. We shall fight it up to the National Assembly. We are not going to fold our arms and allow this to happen in Nigeria, except they will also start registering our brothers and sisters in Kano, Sokoto, Kaduna, Gombe, Nassarawa and others”.
Bambado, who said some people were taking advantage of the security challenges in the country to create confusion, added: “There should be other ways of going after criminals. The population of a particular state cannot be taken in isolation without other Nigerians. Registering us means that we are no longer part of Nigeria, so where do we belong? We should work hard to resolve the problem we already have at hand, rather than complicating it”.
