“This clearly, lowly narrow political and religious sentiments have beclouded the judgment of the leadership of the NBA, forgetting the most basic principle of their training and that its members cut across all sides of the divide.”

It stressed that farmers and herders’ conflict was a phenomenon ravaging the entire country, adding that it

expected the NBA to constructively engage the government and all parties towards resolving the crisis and not take side.
