Federal Government Announces Suspension Of Planned RUGA Settlement Project

After the public outrage the Ruga Settlement Scheme and the seeming misconception had generated across the country, President Muhammadu Buhari  has decided to suspend the idea pending further notice, THISDAY has learnt.

THISDAY had gathered that after consultations with stakeholders, the president had decided to put away the idea to a later date for a thorough review and well acceptable approach to the menace constituted to national security by the constant clashes between herdsmen and farmers.

The Federal Government had come up with RUGA  project to end the clash and create settlement for the herders in each state of the federation also bearing promises of better and meat and milk, job creation and other benefits for the nation. But some Nigerians have not seen it in this light and had shown their displeasure at the Federal Government decision claiming that it was a scheme to fulanise.
