Legit.ng gathered that the meeting drew Fulani leaders from the 36 states and the FCT.
Ya’u Haruna, the convener of the meeting and a former chairman of the Jigawa chapter of MACBAN, said the association is paying attention to those who have shown their interest in contesting the 2023 presidency, including Tinubu.
Why Tinubu was their choice
Haruna said Tinubu, when he was governor of Lagos state, intervened and resolved an issue that involved the association when it had a crisis in Benue.
He said he believes that the national leader can do more for the association if elected president.
“Tinubu came all the way, got us on a round table, and reconciled us, so, someone who could do this at that time, we believe can do more when he is at the helms of affairs.”

In another report, former interim chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, on Thursday, December 9, 2021, narrated how President Muhammadu Buhari promised but failed to pick Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as his running mate in the 2015 election.
Akande who is also a former governor of Osun state made the revelation in his autobiography, “My Participations”, which was launched in Lagos on Thursday.
He said Tinubu was instrumental to the emergence of Osinbajo as running mate to Buhari after he was formally dropped and asked to submit three names from the southwest from which Buhari would pick one.
