The Chairman of Hausa/Fulani socio-cultural group, Muhammad Koli, in Abuja called on Fulani herdsmen to embrace education for them to be able to read and write.
Koli gave the charge when he and 26 others were sworn-in as the new executives to run the affairs of the group for a four-year single term.
According to him, education would not only empower them to read and write but participate in the socio-economic activities of the nation.
He noted that it was extremely becoming hard to secure white collar jobs even with paper qualification, "but Fulani with their business can also excel when they combine it with formal education."
He said the aims and objectives of the group were to bring the Hausa/Fulani and the Northerners under one umbrella.
Koli said the team had also planned to support orphans, widows and other less privilege ones in the society.
He noted that for those who for one reason or the other were affected by disaster both natural and man-made would also benefit the group’s gesture.
He appealed to the members to be law abiding by reporting any disagreement that may arise in the cause of day to day activities.
