Fulani youths in Plateau State say the present State Governor, Simon Lalong has provided more jobs to members of the tribe than any past Governor in the State.
The Governor has since his first term election in 2015 offered political appointments along with business skills and grants to youths from the tribe, Former National Youth leader, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Mr. Abdulkarim Bayero told journalists on Friday.
“The State Government through the Plateau State Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency (PLASMEDA) purchased 30 cattle and distributed to Chairmen of Miyetti Allah in the 17 Local Governments of the State.
“Prof. Sharubutu was invited to train some selected Fulani youths from the 17 LGAs in modern cattle rearing,” Bayero said in Jos, the capital of Plateau State.
Recent allegations by the Jonde Jam Fulani Youth Association of Nigeria, that the Governor has neglecting the tribe are therefore baseless, said the ex Youth leader on behalf of concerned Fulani Youths in the State.
