The reports making rounds on social media that the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has endorsed former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu for President has been refuted by the group.
According to the group, individual’s opinion or position on who succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 should not be considered as a general statement.
The National Secretary of MACBAN, Baba Ngelzarma on Wednesday, issued a rebuttal stressing that the association respects the ambition of all aspirants and was yet to pitch its tent with any of them.
“The attention of MACBAN headquarters has been drawn to stories in the media claiming that we have endorsed the presidential aspiration of Sen. Ahmed Tinubu.
“We want to make it clear that the association has not endorsed any candidate. Those who endorsed Tinubu are doing so as individuals.
“MACBAN should not in any way be dragged into the politics of endorsement at this stage,” Ngelzarma said.
Tinubu, had on January 10, formally informed Buhari of his desire to become the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer.
On Tuesday, the party chapter in Lagos accused opponents of making unsubstantiated claims to scuttle the APC leader’s bid.
