A former Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda, has condemned the profiling of Fulani herdsmen as criminals.

In an interview with journalists shortly after his revalidation as a member of the All Progressives Congress, at the Destination Bauchi Hotel, on Monday, the former governor said Fulani herdsmen are being treated unfairly in Nigeria.

He said herdsmen, who have provided the country with a minimum of one million cattle to slaughter daily, have been neglected by the federal government over the years.

According to him, if the government could release huge sums of money as subsidies in agriculture, why can’t the government subsidise pastoralism?

“The neglect of the Fulani especially the cattle rearers who are presently giving Nigeria a minimum of one million cattle every day to slaughter and take as beef, their treatment by the Nigerian people have been most unfair,” he said.
