Quotes

He said at the end of the civil war, NAF continued to develop and by the late 1980s, it was the ` "toast’ of the African continent."
According to a statement by Governor Aliyu's spokesman, Danladi Ndayebo, during the meeting, "members of the forum and leaders of the Fulani Cattle breeders Association will fashion out strategies to address the disturbing state of insecurity in the region and proffer practical and enduring solutions"
