President Buhari's search for oil in Northern Nigeria suffered a major knock, as Fulani herdsmen under the umbrella of Kulen Allah Cattle Rearers Association of Nigeria (KACRAN) accused him of wasting resources. 

 

Speaking on behalf of the group in Damaturu on Monday, National President of the association, Khalil Mohammed Bello, stated the resources used in the oil search can be used to develop the livestock sector and in turn boost the country's revenue. 

 

“One cannot compare renewable resources with natural deposits such as petroleum resources, which can be replaced with several alternative sources of energy such as biofuel, electricity, solar etc to motorise our engines.

 

“We are all aware that, no matter how abundant country’s petroleum resources is one day the resources will be exhausted or replaced by another source of energy more especially as the entire World now is crying of climate change and air pollution, mainly caused by heavy duty industries that are using petroleum resources for their daily operations.

 

“And even if petroleum resources are not replaced with other sources of energy, it will one day finish, and that is why whenever new petroleum well or wells are discovered, geologists or experts in the petroleum explorations usually state, when that petroleum is expected to be exhausted,” Bello disclosed.
