As the Black Hand behind all the blackmails meted on MBOSCUDA a promising NGO formed to meet the needs of the needy Fulani and the Mbororo community to the chagrin of the rival SODELCO formed to go discrediting MBOSCUAD to no avail. MBOSCUDA from creation has known no peace in the hands of Baba Danpullo and his rival SODELCO Mbororo Association, who believes all should begin and end with him as far as anything concerning the Fulanis and the Mbororo community is concerned because of his money. The rampant land problems and succession right issues in most of the Lamidads in Cameroon are caused by him for selfish interest. Since he is always after grazing land, desires influence over Lamidos and Lamidads as a show off of might. Which accounts for the so many rampant crises within the Mbororo community because he self imposes his own Ardos and Lamidos to the dislike of the people. A typical example is the succession problem in Sabga where the people do not want to recognize his imposed Lamido ELhadj Mamuda Sabga.
“Associations, NGOs and CSOs are created to address or alleviate a particular issue or problem not a tool or a weapon to fight back another” so said the SDO’s representative at the diabolic meeting organized by SODELCO regrouping some Ardos to stigmatize MBOSCUDA wrongly on the 7 of September 2012 at the Bamenda Congress hall. The meeting whose intension was to discredit MBOSCUDA ended up exposing how malicious and black legged the said officials of SODELCO are.
The frowning and ugly words directed to MBOSCUDA that day intended with malice by the SODELCO’s National Vice President to cut off all funding sources and interactions with foreign partners for reasons being that since they are not recognized, no other NGO should promise. Has rather strengthen MBOSCUDA’s ties with foreign partners and the public as they have a concise and a comprehensive balance sheet rendered annually of activities and successes with a well drafted and plan program schedule of activities for the year.
Mboscuda remains most reliable and genuine at the service of the Mbororo community reasons why they have been broking bounds in the delight of poverty alleviation amongst Mbororos, social service amelioration programs, capacity building, sustainable farming and grazing practice promotion, water resource harnessing, conservation, sensitization, education, natural resource management and livestock breeding.

From the above, it is left onto the public now to do a comparative study between SODELCO and MBOSCUDA to see who is genuine and most reliable. For no body will conclude other wise that SODELCO is not mafia group out only to destabilize the good handy and worthy works of MBOSCUDA and why not assassinate her character for selfish ends. For comes to book, and will not sound in any normal mans ear to hear that a project worth 600 million for the construction of a veterinary school for the Mbororos in Cameroon was destroyed by the said Abdul Aziz as he claimed beating his chest. A huge sum which would have come into the economy to develop and boast the life style of the ever needy Mbororo set! Not so?
