The senator noted that, “The problem is political, economical, ecological and  social security problems that every Nigerian should be concerned about.”‎

Sani, who expressed anger over what he termed “The few Fulani people sending wrong message about the about the true nature of the typical Fulanis”  maintained that  the fulanis are peaceful, responsible and good people.

“But I am very much  concerned that the activities of few of them involved in violence has seriously demonised the ethnic fulanis” He lamented.‎

Addressing the Fulani community at Rafin-Roro, Kasuwar-Magani, Kajuru local government area, Kaduna on Monday, Senator Sani urged the fulanis to prevail over the very few elements among them, who have been discrediting the fulanis and giving them  bad name.

While calling on fulanis to embrace peace and avoid fight over farmland, he promised to empower them by providing  with requisite skills, which will help them to more self sustaining and better their lots.

Speaking on reason of his visit, the lawmaker, who is also the Chairman Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debt said, “I am here to help find alternative means of survival so that you my fulani brothers can become  economically viable, productive  and self reliant.

“I am also here to listen to their problems,  interact with you  and see how to   contribute to development of Rafin-Roro village.

“I want stop fulanis from engaging in any act that is capable of breaching public peace”

Fielding question from journalists  Nomadic Development Commission bill which he  presented on the Senate floor, he explained that the essence of the bill is to establish the commission as an agency of government that will support, empower  and rehabilitate the fulanis.

According to him, it is going to be modelled in such a way as that of  Niger Delta Commission.

“The commission will basically support, empower fulanis  and take care or their animals”. He reiterated.
