The breeders under the aegis of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association said the decision by these governors is surprising. Vanguard reports that the southeast zonal chairman of Miyetti Allah, Gidado Siddiki, the association was surprised considering the cordial relationship that had existed in the zone between the group and the five state governments. Siddiki said the association has never failed to appreciate the commitment of the host governors in these states. He said: “It is evident that our organization’s advocacy for peaceful coexistence among indigenous farmers and herdsmen is increasingly making successes in the southeast. “This explains our surprise at the latest stand of the governors, which, if implemented, will not only frustrate our people from carrying out our legitimate livestock rearing business in this part of the country, but might be suggestive of a kind of suspicion that might undermine the mutuality of the claim of brotherhood," Siddiki said.
