  • While land the late Lamido allocated to Rumde Kofa community at highbrow Dougirei area about 8 decades ago is about being bamboozled! bulldozed, to render the Fulani hopeless, homeless; among major trigger to insecurity

HRH Lamido Adamawa, Dr. Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa has generously transferred ownership of the land located at Mayo-Ine village, Fufore local government area, Adamawa central senatorial district, northeast Nigeria, earlier allocated to Ardo Kaku Galadima and other herdsmen displaced in Numan to relocate.

“Ardo Kaku lost his entire family to what was considered as an attempt at ethnic cleansing, said to be orchestrated by seeming sadist-ego-ethnic-militia-mania,” an elder earlier revealed to the Periscope.

The Lamido Fombina revealed the transfer of ownership Wednesday, while responding to the request of the
Fulbe Development and Cultural Organisation, FUDECO, led by Hajiya Jamila Hassan who visited him at his palace.

FUDECO, a befitting organisation striving to restore confidence of Fulani related association by among other efforts, playing significant role in the relocation of the displaced Ardo Kakus, conceived that the children of the herdsmen would need education to be able to be selves-salvaged from the shackles of stereotyping, alienation, extortion, exploitation, oppression, subjugation, bamboozle, servitude and savagery, hence floated the nomadic school named after the community head, Ardo Kaku Galadima and was funded by the International Indigenous Women Forum, FIMI- AYNI, the Periscope earlier reported

“The school established on September 13, 2021, has so far enrolled 184 pupils: 29 males, 155 females.

“To be able to have a formal backing in tune with the standards of the Universal Basic Education and the National Commission for Nomadic Education, Ardo Kaku will need to have even a single block of classrooms.

“Adamawa State Universal Basic Education Board, ADSUBEB, the Periscope could gather, has accorded Ardo Kaku nomadic school the warmest blessing, support and cooperation.

“Having been impressed with the development, the Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Nomadic Education, Prof Bashir Haruna Usman, in an interview with the Periscope said the Commission was considering the possibility of befitting stages of intervention she would deploy to develop the school”.

The first NCNE intervention was the donation of 5000 instructional materials including radio tapes.

The NCNE boss earlier assured that they would consider building blocks of classrooms when the Lamido Adamawa who owned the land gave the permission.

His Royal Highness has expressed his satisfaction of the activities of FUDECO in Adamawa state, the organisation’s relocations and education interventions, where he said that he has since transfered ownership of the lands already allocated to the displaced pastoralists to relocate.

The monarch commended the intervention of the National Commission for Nomadic Education in Adamawa state as much as the activities of the Universal Basic Education Board for allocating teachers to the nomadic schools.

The monarch has pledged continued support with a view to having the pastoralists in the state fully educated.

FUDECO delegates thanked the monarch for the transfer of ownership of the lands he earlier generously allocated to the entire displaced nomads to be relocated not only that of the Ardo Kaku community

The FUDECO delegates to Lamido Adamawa led by Jamila Hassan the state coordinator include,
Comrade Muhammad Bello of PARE, Dr Abubakar Girei wakilin Fulbe and Fatima Zara Bashir, the President National Association of Fulbe Students ABU Zaria.

This is coming at a time when the state orban planning, as alleged, is planning to displace the Fulani of Rumde Kofa community, located at 80 Unit, Dougirei, Gwadabawa ward, Yola North local government area.

The Fulani community has however resisted to be displaced by preventing the assigned bulldozer from pulling down their building, flattening the settlement, to be rendered hopeless and homeless because, according to the community leaders, the land was given to them by Lamido Adamawa, HRH Aliyu Musdafa of blessed memory over eight decades ago.

“They came with bulldozer and combatant civil defence operatives with the intent to flatten our houses and humiliate us away. We resisted the prescribed predator attempt because the law of the land and the Adamawa monarchy disapproved of it,” the alleged about to bamboozled, exploited, oppressed and rendered hopelessly homeless nomads said.

This takes another story.
