Nigerian Fulani in Nigeria
foo-LAH-nee

Scattered mostly in Nigeria and Cameroon, these semi-nomadic people fiercely reject anything they perceive contrary to their lifestyle of roaming with their cattle herds. This includes education and permanent homes. They are widely regarded as troublesome impediments to large cattle ranchers. One businessman and member of a ruling party has established two large cattle ranches, forcing the Fulani tribal people from their historic grazing land. They were given no compensation. Their inability to read and their intense independence have placed them on unequal footing with people who take advantage of them.

Ministry Obstacles
Only audio and visual Bible resources can be effective with Nigerian Fulani.

Outreach Ideas
Christians need to be genuinely concerned about the material welfare of Fulani people, finding ways to assist them, building friendships and trust.

Scripture Focus
"He is your praise. He is your God, who has done for you these great and terrifying things that your eyes have seen."  Deuteronomy 10:21

Scripture Prayer
Pray that many from this people group will make the Lord their only God, and thank Him for His miracles.

Prayer Focus
Pray the few Christians among Fulani people would receive teachers to help them become well established in the faith. Pray they would find each other to fellowship together. Pray they would learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit, experiencing the fruit of the Holy Spirit consistently. Pray the Fulani would be able to care adequately for their families, better prepared for the rapidly changing conditions of the 21st century. Pray they would see the need to make schooling a priority for their children.
