Speaking on the event in Awka, the leader of the Fulani community in Anambra State and a stakeholder of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, AlhajiGidadoSidikki, said the inaugural ceremony would usher in a new direction for MACBAN across the nation. He said MACBAN is business oriented and ensures cordial relations between members and their host communities across the country.
Sidikki said an election was conducted on 29th October, 2022 and Baba Usman Ngelzama emerged as the new national president of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria. He said Ngelzama and his executives, after inauguration on Thursday this week, will run the affairs of MACBAN for a period of 4 years.
Sidikki who was the immediate past zonal chairman of MACBAN in the Southeast, said members of the Board of Trustees of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria include His Eminence Alhaji Mohammad Abubarkar 2, the Sultan of Sokoto as the Chairman Board of Trustees. Others according to him, include Lamido of Adamawa, Emir Kano, Emir of Zazzau, and Emir of Katsina.

Sidikki said anybody who rears cows can be a member of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, irrespective of tribe or religious inclinations.
Although he mentioned that there are two groups of Miyetti Allah; that there is Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria and there is also Miyetti Allah who are socio-cultural in their understanding. He said they are not violent but vigorously pursuing their business of cattle rearing and ensuring peaceful coexistence between their members and their host communities, even as he pointed out that they have lost some of their members and cattles to hostilities in some host communities across the country.
